Most finance blogs focus on what not to spend on – how to cut costs, save more, and hopefully meet your financial goals that way. But I believe that investing in yourself is important and makes a huge difference if you’re feeling your best. There are a few things you can spend money on that will make you feel great and hopefully carry over into other areas of your life. From professional car detailing, through to organic food, these are the things that I feel are worth splurging on. Keep reading to learn more!
1. Car Cleaning and Detailing
If you own a car, then chances are you know how good it feels when your car is professionally cleaned and looking its best. Walking up to your recently detailed car feels different. Theres also something special about having the peace of mind that your car will be regularly cleaned and taken care of. I suggest scheduling a regular detailing service every one to three months depending on how much use your car gets. If you have children, for example, you might find it more appropriate to have more regularly detailing. I suggest also using a mobile detailing service to save you time and hassle, and you can search to find auto detailing near me.
2. Organic Food
The old saying is ‘you are what you eat’ and with that in mind you’re going to want to eat the best quality food products you can. We know that the quality of fruits and vegetables can vary considerably based on where and how they’re grown. Many farms use harsh chemicals in order to help the plants grow, while impacting the nutrient quality of these foods. I suggest shopping organic as much as you can afford to do so, as you can feel confident that these foods are grown in the best possible conditions. Check out Pasc-fhcp.com for more information.
3. Clothes You Love
Do you find yourself picking clothes just because they’re on sale and a bargain? Not really considering the quality of the clothes or if they fit how you like? I suggest having a smaller capsule style wardrobe of clothes you love that are higher quality and fit you just how you like. Play around with different fabric textures, such as cashmere, wool, silk and cotton to ensure your wardrobe is interesting and varied. But this is one of those situations where ‘less is more’ and having things that you absolutely love and feel great on, is much better than a huge wardrobe of stuff you don’t like anymore.
4. A Gym Membership
In most places around the world, things are opening up after being closed for two years. It’s affected us all in so many ways, from socially through to our fitness, too. Now that gyms are likely open in your area, it’s the perfect excuse to sign up and invest in yourself and your health. Moving your body feels good – especially after numerous lockdowns – and reduced activity levels. I suggest splurging on the nicest gym you’re interested in and using this as motivation to go and get fit.
These four things are great ways to splurge on yourself to make yourself feel your best.
