Some people fail to realise that self-love is one of the best forms of love that you can experience because your happiness in life is also paramount. So, besides showering your lover, parent, friend or child with lovely things, below are six unique self-date ideas you should try out.
- Have a solo game night
Games are fun to play in a group setting, but playing a few board games by yourself is a fun challenge. Jigsaw puzzles are relaxing to solve, and the more the pieces, the merrier. Sudoku and other word games will also stimulate your brain and you’ll even be able to learn new words. There are thousands of game apps that you can also download to kill time.
- Go on an ice cream date
In this life, you will meet very few people who don’t like ice cream. What’s not to love about ice cream? There are so many delicious flavours to choose from and you can also play around with different toppings.
Take a break from your diet and treat yourself to a huge tub or cone of ice cream. Try a new flavour that you would never choose on a regular day. Your inner child will be jumping for joy!
- Get to know yourself
You know those moments when someone asks you, “So, tell me about yourself”, and you look dumbstruck as if you just met yourself? This is a good time to find out interesting things about yourself.
One of the main purposes of going on a date is to get to know the other person better but also knowing yourself more will help you make better life choices. There are so many personality tests that are freely available online so give one a try.
- Visit a national park
Being outside in nature with beautiful wild animals is a relaxing and fun way to unwind. This is a healthy activity to engage in away from your busy schedule, as well as disconnect from technology for the most part.
There are so many tourist attractions and national parks around Kenya. Simply find a location that suits your budget and get lost from the world for a few days.
- Bake something
There is an endless amount of delicious pastry recipes online that look amazing, but most of us end up feeling too lazy to actually make them. Challenge yourself and try to follow an actual baking recipe step-by-step. Remember to double your ingredients so you have tasty treats for several more days to come.
- Go for a drive
Stock up on your favourite snacks, fill your tank, put a playlist together and hit the road. There are very few things in life that can compare to the joy of singing while driving. Yes, you look crazy to other people on the road, but this is your own private concert and you’re the star of the show.
