I’m a major homebody so I love a good night in. If I’m by myself I like to put some music on and cook, whether it’s something easy that I’ve cooked a hundred times, or something new from a cookbook. I also love to pamper myself. I’ve always done my own manicures so I love putting on a face mask and zoning out in front of the tv while I trim my cuticles. While you’re out at the club I’m watching everything on the ID channel and practicing my nail art and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
On the nights that I do get out of the house I really love to get together with my group of friends, but I still like to keep it low key. I like when we gather at someone’s house with some snacks and play games or just sit around and talk and laugh. I’m not a big activity or adventure person, I much prefer to just connect. If it’s a date night with my boyfriend though, we’ll usually do dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and then if I’m not begging him to go home, then we’ll also see a movie after.
I love Sunday because there is no expectation to see anybody. It’s pretty well understood that Sunday is a time to decompress and get your shit together. That’s when I like to clean, do laundry and run errands. I find the act of running errands and doing chores meditative. I have anxiety and so those days where I get to get my life and home in order makes me feel more in control for the rest of the week.
Peppermint oil. It’s my secret weapon for anxiety and panic attacks. Seriously, try it. It’s changed my life so much in the moments where you feel yourself starting to lose it, breathing it in just regrounds you.
