Do Tell: What Do You Do For You?

I recently asked you what you do just for your guy, and I wasn't surprised to find out that you all do a lot of compromising to make him happy. Compromise is great, and it makes for a healthy relationship when it's reciprocated, but so does giving into your own needs and wants every once and a while. I love to save up all my favorite sappy dramas and worst reality shows throughout the week on my DVR and give myself a mini-marathon on a free Sunday afternoon but what about you? Do tell ladies, is there anything special or even mundane that's something you do just because it makes you feel good?

I get pedi's it's so relaxing and it usually turns out that no one calls me during that time which is even better!

I love lying in bed, just daydreaming. I don't get to do it as much as I like... it's kind of what you get for living in a dorm, staying up too late, and trying to get as much sleep in as you can rather than daydream. Any kind of coffee is also a treat. :P

I make decisions without considering my BF. Dear Sugar said it, most of us are always compromising in our relationships which I feel is a positive quality about women. But in the past, I have lost my sense of self in order to be agreeable so my personal indulgence is to decide what I will do regardless of him. The most important caveat of course is that my decision not cross over relationship boundaries i.e. I don't cheat, lie or do anything unreasonable that would injure our partnership. But deciding how I spend my day, for instance, without wondering how or if he will be a part of it is one good way I take care of myself

Sundays are spa days for me, esp. now that my boyfriend is away on tour for a few months. I deep condition my hair, do my nails, face mask, anything else I can think of, and usually get some great takeout for myself and watch "What Not To Wear Marathons" or something of the sort :P Of course, when my boyfriend is home, we usually do face masks together on Sundays anyway hahaa..

I stay in bed allll day.. I'll get up to walk the dog and grab a bite but I love laying completely naked under my thick douvet with my laptop next to me watching movies on it.. ESPECIALLY when it's raining.. because myself and my dog DO NOT like to go outside for ANYTHING when it rains.. lol. he's so cute he literally will hold it for hours until the rain stops..

Oh, for me time I totally indulge my guilty pleasures. I read any gossip magazine I can get my hands on, watch 'Tori & Dean Inn Love', refuse to respond when the dirty dishes call to me, play the same songs I love over and over.................. it's great. :)

Working out every day of the week. I don't go overboard with it because I do it every day, but I enjoy the quiet and the calming effect of exercise.

well, my addiction to Pop sugar would have to be the main one. But we just bought a 4 bedroom duplex and fixed it up. At first we had my BFs office in one room and then just had extra room in the basement that wasnt being used. My BF decided to move his office into that room so I could have my own room, too. (it was really his idea not mine, but I was definatly thinking that I wanted my own room!) So, now Ive got my own little office/library. I read ALOT and watch lots of sappy chick flicks that he wont watch with me. :)

I pop in FRIENDS dvd's or watch the reality shows that my fiance cant stand (but will somehow manage to watch with me at times). Or I blast some poppy music, like Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys and take out my makeup kit and do my face like 4 times. Or a bubble bath. I KNOW....LAME. but it makes me soooo happy!

I over sleep on Saturday or Sunday while my hubby gets up with the kids.... Then during the week I try to work in at least 30 minutes to myself just to relax and breath.

Reading magazines, painting my toenails, working out, watching goofy shows like American Idol with my roomates, going and trying on tons of clothes, listening to goofy, girly music :) I try to do something once a day.

My favorite things to do during my "me time" are: reading (whether it be a novel or a fashion magazine), yoga, shopping, and watching episodes of The Office for the zillionth time. Sometimes I even clean/organize; strangely, I find it very calming. Oh, and I agree Gigill, DIY manicures/pedicures are relaxing too!
