The Ultimate Treat Yo Self Weekend Itinerary
For too long, we’ve been deprived of the proper amount of pampering.nFor too long, we’ve been told to “treat yo self!” and we’ve only treated ourselves to one single thing.
Maybe a massage. Maybe a day trip. Maybe a new robe.
Push Yourself to Treat Yo Self!
Making time for self-care is a challenge. You're ready for it. Oh, how you're ready for it. Right? Push yourself to treat yo self with IRLA Treat Yo Self challenge medals. Get a series of five medals that mark your milestones for those moments -- or hours -- you stole for just for you. As you set more goals, and need inspiration for your next indulgence, your IRLAs give you the motivation to do more and more.
Today, the singular idea of spoiling ourselves comes to an end.
Today, we’re going plural.
Today, we free ourselves from the trap of doing just one nice thing for ourselves at a time. While these treats can be enjoyable, they often leave us wanting more - more variety, more indulgence, more excitement.
Today is all about more.
Whether you’ve finished a busy period at work, done a big home restoration project for the family, or just need some you-time, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve put together a weekend itinerary that takes the concept of "treat yo self" to the next level.
Over the course of two days, you'll pamper yourself with different luxurious experiences that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Follow this itinerary to the T, and you’ll have no problem spoiling yourself and unlocking these self-care challenge medals!
Treat Yo Self Weekend Itinerary - Saturday
We’re starting Saturday off slow. (Who are we kidding, the whole weekend is slow!)
Sleep in and have a leisurely breakfast at home. If you’ve got some of these handy brunch ingredients, you’ll be enjoying a spinach omelet and sparkling wine chaser in no time.
Follow your lazy Saturday start with a massage at a local spa to kick off the day with relaxation and self-care (or stay cozy and do your own at-home massage).
A massage is the perfect way to release tension, relieve stress, and pamper yourself, and it’s the first on our list of self-care challenges to unlock.
Did the clock just strike sometime in the afternoon? Then it’s time to reward yourself for making it halfway through Saturday by buying yourself a completely unnecessary gift, whether it's a luxury item, a gadget you've been eyeing, or something else that brings you joy.
(To really live in the moment, it does help to set aside money to be able to spoil yourself to the fullest!)
Treat yourself to something you wouldn't normally buy and revel in the feeling of luxury and indulgence – even if you’re indulging in gifts that only cost $10.
Spoiling yourself isn’t entirely about staying comfy in bed all day (though if that’s your style, more power to you). It’s also about the pampering and the fancy.
For Saturday evening, it’s time to take a new outfit (maybe one you happened to splurge on earlier today!) out on the town.
Dress up, feel glamorous, and grab a table at a sparkly restaurant you’ve always wanted to go before. Sip on fine wine, devour a few decadent desserts, and enjoy your evening out.
Treat Yo Self Weekend Itinerary - Sunday
Wake up early and go on a spontaneous trip, whether it's a road trip to a nearby city, a hike in the wilderness, or a day trip to a nearby beach. Heck, even taking a day to be a tourist in your own town can be a delight!
This half-day or full-day trip lets you live in the moment of a getaway as you soak in the rewards of exploring new places and experiencing new things.
Keep the adventure going and search out a stunning view. Treat yo self to a picnic lunch at a quiet park or find a restaurant that overlooks the city below.
You’re off on your own, freed from your schedule and your obligations, so sit back and savor the flavors, enjoy the scenery, and let the lazy hours of a Sunday afternoon float alongside you.
Maybe there’s an activity you’ve always wanted to try, a wine tasting, a visit to a local museum, or other tour. This is the moment for giving into your whims and wishes!
Just because the Ultimate Treat Yo Self Weekend Itinerary may be coming to an end doesn’t mean it’s over yet.
Head back home from your spontaneous day trip for a cozy night in, perhaps with a movie or a book, or by taking part in some last self-care activities like a bubble bath or a face mask.
Relax, unwind, and look back on the long weekend. You’ve shown up for yourself, treated yourself to time (something more valuable than any massage!), and giving yourself a gift that you’ll look back on with fondness for the weeks to come.
LIFE’S TOO SHORT NOT TO
You’ve got responsibilities. You’ve got bills to pay. You’ve got all your reasons ready. But what you need to do is treat yo’ self, and that’s what you’ll have to do to earn these IRLAs. Live in the moment for once, do something you’ve always wanted to do, and indulge. There will always be a reason not to give yourself what you deserve, but for now, just ask yourself, “Why not”?”
You’re your best present.
