“Self-care” has become a bit of a buzzword, but it’s important to take time for yourself to mentally, emotionally, and physically recharge. Many people make self-care a priority in the new year and often make it a resolution. If your well-being is at the top of your list, Del Mar Plaza can help you put yourself first this year. Here are five ways to kick off your resolution at the Plaza.
Take a Relaxing Lunch and Choose Something Indulgent (or Healthy)
If you’re like most Americans, you probably rush through meals while multitasking. Del Mar Plaza offers a wide variety of restaurants—from Italian to Japanese, Chinese to Californian—so you can grab a table and order a dish that suits your appetite. You can even start with dessert first! Set your phone to silent and really enjoy your meal and company.
Find a New Outfit or Accessory to Make Yourself Sparkle
Sometimes it just takes a little something to make yourself feel sparkly. Refresh your wardrobe at Sea Biscuit Del Mar, Urban Girl Accessories, Urban Beach House, Garys Studio, Lorna Jane, Coco Rose, or Banana Republic with a new outfit. If you want to treat yourself to something actually sparkly, Loghman Jewelers and Made in Earth have unique pieces to make you feel like a million bucks.
Spend the Day Looking for Inspiration
Looking at art can be a great way to reduce stress. Spend a couple hours perusing Michael Seewald Galleries and looking for inspiration in the pieces. Taking time to unwind, get lost in your thoughts, and really pay attention to things that spark joy in you is one of the best ways to take care of yourself.
Treat Yourself to a Spa Day
If you want to kick off your self-care resolution with some relaxing “me time,” make an appointment at one of the specialty salons at Del Mar Plaza. You can opt for a new hairstyle at Haim Salon, get your toes and hands pampered at Del Mar Nails and Spa, or choose a rejuvenating treatment at Momma’s Medi Spa and feel like a whole new person.
Make Your Physical Wellness a Priority
Self-care often starts with focusing on your physical well-being. Exercise has proven mental health benefits, so finding a workout or class that you love can keep you healthy both physically and mentally. Kim Kelly Fit—located at the Plaza—offers innovative classes that combine plyometrics, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and resistance work to keep you sweating in a fun, challenging environment.
