So, your husband is out on a date and your boyfriend is at work. As far as you’re concerned, you’re a single woman for the moment. What’s a girl to do?

For many women, a truly free day (or night) is like spotting the Loch Ness Monster—it’s a rare or even non-existent occurrence. Such a thing just doesn’t happen when the dishes must be washed, laundry needs to be folded, a hubby who wants you to sew a hole in his favorite trousers, and a beau who has been begging you all week to bake his favorite cookies. On top of all that, you have the kids’ bedrooms, which could use tidying, some errands to catch up on, and the list goes on and on…

However, when a free day does make an appearance, and you’re able to be a single woman for the day, there’s no reason to waste a perfect opportunity on the mundane. This is especially true when you possess a free pass to do whatever you want, whenever you want to. Think about it.

For now, you have no need to compromise, no need to pacify a spouse, no need to entertain a boy toy, and no children to care for…

It’s all about you—and more you—and…well, you again.

And you deserve this. You need this. Despite how it might seem, it is not selfish to take a day just for you. You will be healthier and happier for it.

But you aren’t sure where to begin?

7 Self-Care Ideas for Your Day as a Single Woman

1. Start Your Day as a Single Woman with an Early Morning Walk

As dawn breaks, start your day as a single woman by heading to a quiet shoreline where you can walk barefoot in the sand. Watch the sunrise and collect seashells while taking in the soothing hum of breaking waves. No beach? No problem! Grab a blanket and head to a park with a lake so you can sit in the grass and enjoy the soft sounds of lapping water and early-morning birdsong.

2. Enjoy a Mid Morning Brunch

After your walk, it’s time to locate a quaint restaurant that serves a champagne brunch with all the indulgences. Enjoy gourmet offerings like freshly baked muffins and croissants, an assortment of fresh fruit, cheeses, and cold meats. Spoil yourself. Splurge. Make sure to enjoy a Mimosa, a Bellini, or a Rossini.

3. Take Advantage of Your Easy Day as a Single Woman

How will you take advantage of this rare event?
Perhaps you can treat yourself to a therapeutic spa day. Even if you feel too busy to relax, you can choose to let go of your overstimulation and de-stress in a sensory-limited float pod or float room. The water is set to a receptor-neutral temperature, which means you should not be able to tell where your skin ends and the water begins.

For those who do not enjoy floating, many spa establishments feature dry salt rooms, which offer you a chance to benefit from an environment of a salt cave without having to travel far. Pamper yourself by completing your respite with a hot stone massage and/or body wrap.

4. Spend the Afternoon Relaxing

Love books and hot beverages? Take a classic read as your companion for afternoon tea. Dickens or Austen, Orwell or Woolf, Lewis or Tolkien are wonderful authors to relax with while partaking in a cherished British tradition. Ask for a table in a quiet corner of your favorite coffee shop and enjoy a light repast of savory sandwiches and small cakes while drinking a cup of hot tea.

5. Have a Creative Evening as a Single Woman

Do you like to paint on canvas or pottery? Do you like to drink wine? Why not combine the two! Having a glass of wine while exploring your artistic side is a wonderful way to unwind. If you do not have the supplies at home, search for locations in your area that offer this relaxing activity for a nominal fee.

6. Spend a Fun Night Out on the Town

As a single woman, you can’t be afraid to be your own date. Take yourself out for a night on the town!

Put on your little black dress and splurge on a fine-dining experience at that trendy restaurant you always wanted to try before treating yourself to after-dinner drinks at a jazz club. Haven’t seen your girlfriends in a while? Meet up with your girls at a martini bar for tapas and cocktails before hitting up a casino for some fun. Want something a little more low-key? Reconnect with an old lover over fine spirits and good cigars at an exclusive cigar lounge.

7. Rest

It’s time to end the day in the most relaxing way. Set the mood at home with a sexy romance novel and a candlelit bubble bath. Afterward, don your nightie, grab your laptop, and crawl into a soft, warm bed for some online shopping. Not in the mood to shop? Meet new people here on SwingTowns! Peruse profiles, and make a connection with those currently online. When your eyes grow heavy, fall asleep to your favorite chick flick.
