Feelin' Myself Friday: 50 Ideas for Relaxing Evenings at Home

It's about time I do a post about Feelin' Myself Friday! Where would I be without it? I started doing it this year, and it has made aaaall the difference in my life. Essentially, Feelin' Myself Friday is an evening (Friday, obvi) where I spend time pampering myself and practicing self-care.

I'm not the best at allowing myself to enjoy things and relax, so having an evening each week dedicated to these relaxing activities allows me to enjoy them. I'm a very rigid girl, what can I say? Every Feelin' Myself Friday is different; on some, I want to do spa day type practices, and on others, I want to be productive and organized. It's all about what helps me clear my mind and feel lighter in my life, ya know?

I love Feelin' Myself Friday and how it helps me go about the rest of me week, so I thought I'd put together a little list of activities anyone could do during their own pamper evening.

Disclaimer: Pampering or any other calming activities are not substitutes for seeking mental help. These activities are only for lightening the load of a long week or general inner stress. A face mask or some stargazing are not cures for your mental health. If you feel like you need help, please seek it out.
