5 Ways To Treat Yourself This Year

steph taylor jackson

Have you seen the dialogue around being a “soft woman?” I think it is such a necessary conversation. Living a “soft life” is something that I am fully embracing this year. The whole premise is that for so long the “grind” lifestyle has been tied to success. Women have been wearing multiple hats and grinding non-stop … for what? More money, a promotion, recognition … all of these are great things but at what cost? There were many reasons why I quit my job in September, but letting go of the unnecessary grind was high on the list. And quite frankly, after a tumultuous last couple years, I don’t want to grind anymore. I’m going to enjoy rest, relaxation and luxury a lot more this year than I ever have in the past.

Here are 5 ways to treat your self a little more this year.

Book The Trip

There are so many places around the world that I want to see. My motto this year is ... book the trip! Save your money, grab your girlfriends and make it happen. What are you waiting for?

Buy The Shoes

We've always been savers and investors. I buy luxury items here and there, but it's pretty tame. I'm having some fun this year. I set a quarterly budget for myself and I'm buying the damn shoes ... and the bag! LOL

Go To The Spa

I love a great deep tissue massage. What about you? I feel like I wait until I'm on vacation to get a great massage and I really need to stop doing that. There are so many amazing spas in every city. Get on Google, find you a 5 star location and prepare to float away in total bliss.

Hire The Help

Sometimes you have to spend money in order to make money, to have peace or to have a better balance. If it's a part-time nanny, an assistant, a CPA, a chef ... sis, whatever it is that will give you the peace you need -- do it. Even it if it's just a couple times to take a load off your plate. You deserve it.

Say No

No is my favorite complete sentence. It's direct and to the point. When I started seeing a therapist towards the end of last year, protecting my peace and learning how to manage myself without worrying about what other people think or how they might feel was my primary goal. It is so freeing to say no and to protect my time, my energy and my money with zero feelings about how the other person might feel.
