5 ideas for solodates

In a busy life, it can be rewarding to set aside some time for self-care and nurturing. Self-care can take many different forms, and if you're looking for ideas for activities you can do on your own, check out our guide here!

A trip to the movies

A trip to the movies is a classic date choice, but can also be a great way to enjoy your own company. Choose a movie you've wanted to see for a long time or be open to finding new favorites - it's totally up to you. You can make the experience extra special with popcorn or bringing your own favorite snacks.

Take a trip to the sauna

A trip to the sauna is a great way to relax and recharge your body. Whether you do it after a workout, a trip to the ocean or just as an experience in itself, it's a great way to practice wellness.

Dinner for one

Whether you're cooking at home or going out, a nice dinner can be a great treat. Dining out alone can be a bit of an intimidating experience for many, but it can be a nice form of self-indulgence and can also be a great time for self-reflection. Take some time to think about your day, the past week, or just life in general. Listen to your own thoughts, feelings and maybe write them down. You can always bring a book or use your phone if it gets too much.

Find a new hobby

Maybe you've been thinking about learning to knit, paint, sew or something else entirely? Trying out a new hobby can not only be a fun challenge, but also a great way to spend time with yourself.

A hike

Whether you live in the city or near beautiful nature, a short hike can be an enjoyable activity on its own. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes and maybe bring a bag with water and snacks. If you live in the city, you can also stop at a cafe and enjoy something there. If you have access to a forest or something similar, it can be nice to bring food for a picnic.

Solo dates aren't just about simply doing things alone: it's also about enjoying your own company. You don't have to prefer your own company, and it's fine if you prefer doing things with others. But it's important and healthy to be able to do things just for yourself: whether you go to the movies, eat out or something else. The most important thing is to take some time to nurture your relationship with yourself.
