If you’re feeling overworked, underappreciated, or just straight-up over it, we suggest taking a day to treat your damn self. In fact, the popular TV show, Parks and Recreation, wholeheartedly agrees. They were the first to establish the fictional, and now real-life Treat Yo’ Self day, which just so happens to fall on Saturday, October 13 this year.
Sometimes, especially in this day and age, you forget to stop worrying about everything and everyone else and consider your own needs. Whether that includes rest and relaxation, buying yourself something nice, or going out and binging on some of Chicago’s most incredible restaurants, you deserve a day off from pleasing the rest of the world.
So tomorrow, in true Parks and Rec fashion, go ahead and treat yo’ self.
With an English and Communications Bachelor’s degree from Trinity International University, Kali knew she would take the path of a zealous editor the moment she stepped out into the working world. A passion for words takes up the forefront of Kali’s mind, but you can also find her happily daydreaming about traveling abroad in the summertime. Big sunglasses, even bigger books, perennial plants, and obscure art are among the few items you might find in Kali’s room, and she’s always eager to have a discussion about social issues. You can often find her madly typing her latest book into existence, currently Sinister Chicago.
