Sometimes, all you need to recuperate and get your strength and motivation back is to take a 30-minute break from the world and spoil yourself. Here is a short list of things you can do in those 30 minutes without spending money.

Remember, this break on a budget is all about you.

1. Read a book. When last did you just shut yourself off from reality and simply get lost in the world of fantasy?
2. Take a bubble bath.

5. Colour, draw or paint something.
6. Write a one-sentence story – you’ll be surprised at how satisfying it can be.
7. Take a nap!

12. Take out your old photo albums (actual albums, not the ones on Facebook) and take a trip down memory lane.
13. Go for a swim.
14. Have a picnic. Yes, you may have a picnic by yourself. You can even do it in your own garden.
15. Give yourself a massage.
