What are some ways to enjoy a relaxing birthday weekend?

Cupid’s Advice:

Though life can be stressful, your birthday is a time to relax and have fun.  Here are a few tips for a relaxing birthday weekend:

1. Outsource your work: Instead of hosting a party, take friends out to dinner.  By going out, you eliminate all the cooking, cleaning, and prepping that needs to be done before and after a party.

2. Keep it small: Though you may be happy to see all of your friends, socializing with many people may wear you out.  By inviting only a few, close friends, you can converse together in a small group, without having to worry about your other guests.

3. Enjoy yourself: Your birthday is one of the only days that revolves around you.  Enjoy the day and do whatever you want.  Sleep in, get a massage, go shopping or indulge in a mani/pedi.  Don’t let anybody else plan your schedule for you.
