5 Ways Pamper Yourself On International Women's Day
"There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish." - Michelle Obama.
International Women's Day (March 8th) is a global day celebrating women's social, economic, cultural, and political achievements worldwide and, of course, female empowerment.
Female empowerment is defined as promoting a woman's self-worth and ability to do things based on their own choices and their right to influence social change for themselves and others.
Every woman deserves a day of self-care and pampering; however, it can be challenging to find time for yourself between work, the home, and the million other commitments! So why not give yourself the gift of time and beauty by pampering yourself on International Women's Day with these top five tips.
It's Time To Unplug And Relax
Hey, girl, today is your day, so unplug and relax! Yeah, we know that screen time can be through the roof, from Zoom calls to emails, even some late-night texts! And while it can seem almost impossible to get an opportunity to unplug, even on days where you're not working, you need to. Not only can unplugging allow the brain to relax, but it will give you the chance to recover from a busy day.
Treat Yourself To A Mani-Pedi This International Women's Day
It's a day of pampering, and your feet and hands are invited. Treating yourself to both a manicure and a pedicure is a must. Not only is it relaxing, but did you know they are very beneficial for your health (save that fact for the next time your man asks about your nail visit).
Here are some of the benefits of having a manicure and pedicure.
- Stress release
- Improves the health of your nails
- Increases blood circulation
- Improves mobility of the joints
Treat Yourself To Your Favorite Meal
Why not celebrate International Women’s Day by enjoying dinner from your favorite restaurant. We prefer to have something delivered, so we do not have to cook! App-based food delivery is a popular way to get a quick and easy meal, like Door Dash, Grub Hub, or Uber Eats, to name a few.

Get Your Beauty Sleep
Oh, how do we all wish we could be sleeping beauty at one time. The importance of having a good night's sleep affects us both mentally and physically, so why not rest a little more on this day.
For your sleepy time ritual, try:
- Watching your favorite tv show or Netflix series
- Light some scented candles
- Essential oils, like lavender
- Reading a book
- Listening to some relaxing music
- Sipping on some sleeping time tea
- A face mask (our skin renews itself while we sleep)
- Don't forget your favorite PJs and a sleeping eye mask to block out the light
