Article # 84
Hey loves! I hope you all are doing well! Today's article is about how you can treat yourself. I feel that treating yourself is doing something that makes you really happy or that helps you de-stress. With the upcoming school year approaching it can get kind of stressful, so these are ways you can treat yourself when you need a breather!

Recently, I watched a movie called How to Be Single. The main character decided to do a bunch of things by herself for herself. It was all things that she really, really wanted to do, and I think that that is really important! We can become independent, so if you want to do any of these things by yourself, go for it! If you would rather do it with friends, awesome! Chase some dreams! :)
