I am in desperate need of a self care day. For months, outings have been limited to pharmacy and doctor's visits.  A massage, manicure, pedicure, facial and reflexology are high on my wish list.

Well, after we get our second shot on St Patti’s day, I’d load my husband’s butt into our Econline van and drive as far as $200 would take us; which at the rate gas is going up, may be the end of the block...

With an entire day off I would spend time with my wife and dog in the beautiful National Forest that begins a few miles from our front door. We would hike, bird watch, practice yoga and meditate, and enjoy healthy vegan food in our day submerged in nature. It would be wonderful.

I would take my 99 year old grandmother to the park for a lunch. She's still active and loves the outdoors! We would relax in the shade, create memories and share family stories. We love doing that!

There are so many great ideas people have shared. A day of pampering would be wonderful. I  would love to have an ayurvedic experience.  The Shirodhara healing technique is the most calming, peaceful, world forgetting thing I have ever experienced.  It is more expensive than a typical massage - so I have only ever done it once.  I would start with that. 

Thank you for the opportunity to apply 🙂

I would visit our beautiful local parks for a nice hike to enjoy the outdoors and peacefulness that working from home doesn't allow. I would be able to purchase a park pass to use all spring and summer long. Maybe even treat myself to a takeout lunch to bring along.

That would be a great idea. Spending time on the beach in a beach house. That really sounds great. I wish that could really happen.

I would spend the $200 buying dinner for my kids and grandkids and spending the day playing games and enjoying being with each other as we have not been able to do that for a long time.

What would I do? So many things are swirling around in my head, but most likely I would definitely spend the days with my family and grandkids, laughing, joking, playing Among Us, that literally drives you to more laughter in the world.

Get awesome Chinese food and Grilled Teriyaki Chicken and sit around the table and say why we are so thankful that we are healthy, happy and together again!

I would have a relaxing day at the beach, walking to a nice secluded spot, laying on the warm sand, with the cool breeze blowing my hair and clear ocean sweeping over my feet as I walk back to my car. then, go home to shower then go out to a nice restaurant to have dinner. Then go to store to spend whats left of the $200 to buy my niece who is expecting her first child lots of things she will need for her baby.
