Cause sometimes you need a girls’ night, even if it is long distance~
Lately I have been overworking and underpaying myself so I decided tonight would be the perfect self-care night. However, I didn’t want to have a self-care night alone so, despite the fact that I have no girl friends to hangout with here, I took it upon myself to set up a digital girls’ night with my friend Angie.
So to start off our digital girls’ night, I turned on some good music, threw on some comfy clothes, and prepared a face mask. Angie and I had a great time talking while putting on our masks and listening to some music and it made the process of self-care a little less tedious. Once we got our masks on we spent some time catching up and talking about things that we both had coming up, since I don’t live in NY anymore and can’t always be the most up-to-date with the goings on in her life like I used to.
I find that having a bit of company can be really helpful in encouraging some extra self-care. While talking to Angie, I was motivated to clean my room, do a bit of grooming related self-care and get this blog post done! I think that asking a friend to spend your self-care night with you is a great idea to help make self-care a bit more fun instead of making it feel like a chore.
I know that, when I’m in a slump, I have this tendency to avoid doing proper self-care because I am either unmotivated or have convinced myself I am too busy to get it done. Lately, it has been a bit of both so I am glad to have had a friend around to help me get things done that I have been putting off.
As much as I miss seeing Angie in person, I am glad that I can still spend nights with her like this, even at a distance! So if you’re ever feeling lonely, remember you’re in the 21st century and you can see your friends face with just the tap of a phone screen!
What is your favorite thing to do on a self-care night with a friend? I personally love face masks and baking!
