Happy National Escape Day – Give me a break!

Are you feeling a little down in the dumps lately? Have those depressing winter blues set in? If you’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, well, no worries. Today is all about taking a well-deserved break from all the hassles and struggles of everyday life. January 30 is National Escape Day.

Whether you escape to a tropical paradise or head to your nearest restroom to soak in some suds, today is all about taking a moment out of your hectic day to pamper the most special person in your life – you!

While anywhere warm and tropical sounds perfect right about now, for many people, a cruise or tropical vacation just isn’t in the budget. But there are some affordable and free things you can do for a virtual escape.

How to Celebrate National Escape Day

  • Pamper yourself - Get a message.

  • Get a manicure/pedicure.

  • Take a relaxing bubble bath surrounded by scented candles and a glass of your favorite bubbly. Let Calgon take you away!

  • If you’ve been considering a new look lately, today’s the day. Change your hair style or color then celebrate the new and improved you!

  • Put out the Do Not Disturb Sign and tell your family you are taking a moment. Then do it.

  • Get out of the house! Go for a walk or run despite the weather.

  • Love the one you’re with!

  • Make it date night!

  • No housework or cooking today - you are officially off duty!

  • Order in!

  • Start that yoga class you’ve been putting off.

  • Go out with the girls!

  • Grab a few of your favorite flicks, curl up with a nice blanket, some sweet treats and delicious snacks, and make it movie night and laugh or cry your heart out!

  • Enjoy your four-legged friends. Take them for a walk, play, cuddle and enjoy!
