BFF Dates for Mental Health

23 May

Hello readers!

I want to share with you a very important way that helps me stay sane – my mental health tip, if you will.

Meet V:

The bestie - Vanessa

Periodically, she and I have BFF dates (which originated when we both worked at Round Table Pizza and the manager would give us “BFF Assignments” that we could work on together, LOL). During these dates we normally keep things low-key like movie night-in, FRIENDS marathon, shopping, making dinner or going out for an inexpensive dinner – or any combination of all these!

We use this time to blow off steam, have heart-to-hearts and/or just catch up and regain mental balance (which is very important for having a well-rounded healthy lifestyle). And one of our favorite locations to work on our mental states is this nearby dive bar Tequila Hoppers.

Check out our typical order:

Chicken nachos and a pitcher of cadillac margaritas

No, it’s not healthy food but it’s sooo good for the soul ๐Ÿ™‚ And even healthier for your wallet:

Yes, that does make it only $9 per person.

Personally, I don’t have the will power to eat healthy 24/7. I’ve accepted that because of this, I will never be as cut as Jillian Michaels, but for me it’s worth it. I do my best to eat healthy MOST of the time, but I also have to enjoy myself and sometimes, nothing can be substituted for half-price loaded nachos and margaritas.

Sometimes you just have to feed your soul. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love bff dates! Especially those involving nachos and margaritas…and redbull & vodka. And the Slidebar. I’m not over how much fun I had on Saturday :D.

    They really do help keep me sane, because I don’t even have to make sense and you understand lol. I’m going to be a mess while you’re in Italy!
