We already know that winter break is an awesome time to do all of the activities you can’t do during the school year. You finally have time to read that book you’ve been too busy to read. You also have some time to complete everything you wanted to do in 2013 before New Year’s Eve.
But what if you don’t really want to do anything? What if you want a break and want to decompress over the next few weeks? Well, you’re in luck because winter break is the perfect time to treat yo self as Donna and Tom from Parks & Recreation would say. You have a few weeks to just pamper the crap out of yourself! You’ll be able to recharge your batteries and start the new semester fresh.
Check out these 10 awesome ways to treat yourself over winter break:
Buy Yourself A Present
You've been snatching up Christmas presents for your family and friends. Why not treat yourself to something you really want but didn't want someone else to get for you? You get those shoes.
Make Your Hair Happy
Liven up your hair with a hair mask! You can lounge around and leave one in your hair all day if you want. You could even do a different hair mask every day to really condition your hair and get it back into prime shape.
Give Yourself A Pedicure
Sometimes you just don't want to get up and go to the nail salon. If you're trying to relax, the last thing you want to do is put pants on and go outside in the cold. Give yourself a pedicure at home! Fill up the tub with some warm water and give your feet a good scrub. Then set yourself up on the couch with your polishes and paint away!
Go Makeup Free
You know what I do when I'm home without anything to do? I ditch my makeup. I'm not going to put any on if I'm not going anywhere! Going makeup free for a few days will let your skin breathe. You can thank me later.
Take A Bubble Bath
I'm lucky if I have time for a 10-minute shower every day so I'm going to take a bunch of long bubble baths while I'm home for the holidays. Play some music, read a book or pop in a movie. Surround yourself with candles and just hang out in the bubbles.
Have A Spa Day
In addition to treating your hair, treat your face! We've got plenty of face mask recipes that you can use over winter break to create the ultimate spa day for yourself. Grab some friends or your mom to hang out with too!
Make Yourself A Fancy Meal
Is there something you've been dying to make or try? Now's the time to do it! Whip yourself up a really nice dinner and enjoy!
Get A Haircut
You don't have to do anything drastic! (Unless you want to, then do it!) Just go get yourself a healthy trim so you feel refreshed.
Catch Up On Sleep
When was the last time you really got a good night's sleep? I can't even remember. This is the perfect time to snooze and not feel guilty about it.
Just sit around and chill. Throw on some Christmas movies or binge-watch some Netflix and do nothing. Relax, you deserve it!
