It’s so important to take ourselves on solo dates! No matter if you’re single, in a relationship(s), recently broken up, or whatever — spending time alone in a purposeful way is extremely important. I always feel happy and rejuvenated after I schedule a day for myself and spend it doing whatever I want! One of my favorite go-to dates is to drive around looking for quirky roadside attractions and/or street art murals.
