The hustle and bustle of our everyday lives may become overwhelming, and sometimes a bit of time-out is needed. A spoil day helps you to recuperate and rejuvenate your mind and body. Take a full day off by going to the spa, getting your nails done or just have a relaxing bubble bath. Take a look at our top six spoils ideas…
1. Have a Spa Day
Visit the tranquil bamboo forest gardens of the Balinese-style Spa at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa and experience their Asian-inspired treatments. The Balinese Gardens are the perfect space to catch your breath after your massage. Take a look at their packages and book your spa day today!
2. Take a Bubble Bath
Taking some time out can also mean running yourself a hot bubble bath, and while we agree that this can do wonders for your stress levels, why not spoil yourself to some extra pampering? Fully commit by turning down the lights a little, light a few scented candles and play some soothing music. Pop in a lush bath bomb and let your senses be uplifted. Try this twilight bath bomb designed to help sooth your mind and give you a restful sleep. Twilight lush bath bomb, R62, Lush
3. Mani and Pedi
Spending a fortune on your nails can be a bit daunting, but we have to admit that having our hands and feet look good, makes us feel good! Sorbet has a variety of affordable options for you to choose from.
4. Retail Therapy
Take a trip to the mall and do a little shopping; not for the home or the kids, but for you. Dedicate a few hours to focusing on you and what you want. This way, you’re not going to get something just for the sake of it or because you’re in a rush, but because you want to. Retail therapy is a yes; just don’t break the bank.
5. The Power of a Book
Reading a book helps us take time out from our busy lives and turning our concentration into something else. This book called “Brave, Not Perfect” by Reshma Saujani inspires women and girls to stop chasing perfection but rather be the best possible version of themselves.

6. Have a Cheat Day
Hold your diet off for a day or just a meal. Have some comfort food like malva pudding or ice-cream and waffles! Desserts give you a feeling of comfort and happiness. Don’t feel bad about it; there are also healthier options to choose from and indulging in a cup of refreshing and calming herbal tea can also uplift your spirits. Try out a flavour you haven’t before. Cranberry, apple and Cinnamon, R32, Woolworths; Malva Pudding, Woolworths
