7 Things Every Woman Should do at Least Once a Week ...

You don't want your life to consist of a boring string of events that you hate dealing with. Yes, it's necessary to go to work and to pay taxes, but that doesn't have to be all that you're life is about. Your days are what you make them, so start doing things that will benefit you. There's no reason to wait! Here are a few things every woman should do at least once a week to live a happier life:

1. Exercise

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You should really be exercising more than once a week, but if you never get up and go for a run, you should start doing so at least once a week. As time goes on, you'll get used to doing it and will be able to increase your number of workout days. It's a great way to start getting healthier.

2. See Friends

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It doesn't matter how much work you need to get done at the office. You might have to push back a few meetings, but you can always find a way to make enough time in your schedule for friends. If you don't have fun with them every week, your days will start to feel dreary. Spice things up by planning a day when you can let loose and have fun.

3. Get Pampered

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You don't actually have to waste money on manicures and pedicures at a spa each week. However, you should take at least one day to pamper yourself. Draw a bubble bath that you can read in or paint your nails a gorgeous color while watching your favorite movie. Do whatever you can to let out all the stress that the rest of the week brought you.

4. Write

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You don't have to be into creative writing in order to benefit from scribbling down some words at least once a week. You can start a journal where you talk about all of the exciting things in your life. It'll help to express your feelings on paper, because it stops you from bottling everything up inside. Plus, it's always fun to look back at old entries to see how different your life was in the past.

5. Do Something Nice

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Plant a tree or call up your cousin to try to help her with homework over the phone. It doesn't really matter what you do as long as you're helping another person or the world overall. Even though you're using your time for selfless reasons, it's still going to make you feel great about yourself.

6. Cook

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Maybe your partner or your parents always cook your food. Maybe you just live off of fast food and microwaved meals. Whatever the case, you should try to cook a homemade meal as often as possible. It's healthier for you, and the more you practice, the better you'll get.

7. Read

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Read a book or read the paper. Read whatever you're interested in that isn't off of a computer screen. You want to hold some sort of paper in your hand. It's a great feeling.

Most of these things should be done more than once a week, but you should feel good about yourself even if you only do them once in a blue moon. What other things do you make sure to do at least once a week?
