Best Ways To Treat Yourself on Your Birthday

Best Ways To Treat Yourself on Your Birthday

While we were kids, we got used to the idea that others are responsible for making our birthday fun. And that’s still an awesome way to celebrate a birthday when you grow up. Still, no one knows you better than you know yourself, so why not treat yourself on this special day, especially if you’re alone.

Here are some ideas on how you can treat yourself on your birthday, and make the day extra special:

Start from the morning

Tomorrow is your birthday? Plan in advance what you’re going to do as you wake up. Want to sleep longer? Want to eat cake for breakfast? Want to start your day with a two-hour-long beauty routine? Give yourself permission to start the day in the best and most fun possible way.

Start something new

Our birthdays are often times when we are thankful for our life – but can also be periods when we regret things we didn’t yet achieve. If you want to look different, get new clothes or find ideas for your new style. Experiment with makeup, get some luxurious skincare products.

On the other hand, you can also have an internal makeover. Buy a self-improvement book or watch videos, which talk about overcoming anything you want to leave behind. Finally, you can also attend a workshop or buy an online course to learn a new skill.

Buy something you want

It’s your birthday – there’s no better moment to buy something you usually wouldn’t, because it’s too expensive or not a necessity. Whether it is a branded bag, classy jewelry, or home decor, get something you love, and don’t regret the decision. 

We’re all used to getting gifts from others on our birthday, but it’s a wonderful time to splurge on ourselves, too. If you still want an element of surprise, you could subscribe to a subscription box with a theme that interests you, like a box for book lovers or a monthly box with beauty supplies. 

Book a service

You’ve been talking for ages you want to get a massage, but you never found the time? Want to try a professional beauty service? Going through a rough patch and could use a therapist to help? 

Or do you simply want someone to help clean your house? What better way to treat yourself for your birthday than asking someone to help you with something. You could make the call on your birthday, or schedule in advance and book the service on your special day.

Take yourself out

If you’ve gotten nothing big planned for your birthday, but want to do something when the day comes – it’s never too late. Even if there’s no one else you can share your birthday with, you can still enjoy it on your own. 

Take yourself to dinner at your favorite restaurant, and get some drinks after. Or go see a movie, a theater play or visit a museum. Going out on our own can feel awkward at first, but it gives us a bigger chance to spontaneously meet someone new. 

Plan ahead

It’s normal not to celebrate every birthday when we’re adults. If you are alone on your birthday and still don’t feel fulfilled after you’ve pampered yourself – you can plan your next one. 

Think about what you’d like to be different, and what you can do to make your next birthday better. Spend more time with your family, and make new friends throughout the year. Often, our birthdays are when we realize we have been alienated from other people, so you could challenge yourself to open up more in the following year.
