See a movie alone – easy self-care for Moms

Are you always looking for an easy way to fit in self-care, but the cost and effort seems counter-intuitive? Going to a movie may be exactly the break you need and you can save a lot with this one trick.

Yes… completely by yourself

Don’t feel weird going to a movie alone!  I went, alone, for the first time when I was 19 or 20.  Life or Something Like it was new and I was dying to see it.  Absolutely no one I knew wanted to see it with me.  I finally went, really late at night on a weeknight. 😂

I laugh now and wonder why I thought it was such a big deal.  Although, I talk to plenty of people who feel like it would be weird still.  I promise you that no one cares if you’re alone.  I never seem to pay attention to whether people are alone.  Seriously, who polices that?  It sounds silly, right!?  I doubt you think much of it when you see people alone in theaters.  We’ve just turned it into such a social activity, which is odd because you aren’t supposed to talk to each other the whole time!

The benefit of going to a movie alone

I noticed that, when I go alone, I pay much better attention to the movie.  I get more out of it.  Or maybe your husband is like mine- that romantic movie you’re dying to see is one you had to drag him to… and he pokes holes in the plausibility of the premise the whole way through? 😩 😂

It’s just a great time to breathe and relax.  There’s something magical about the movies.  They provide so much laughter and food for thought.  Not to mention you get to sit in the dark not talking for 2 hours, what could make it better?!

It’s expensive though

That’s the downside.  This year I heard about Movie Pass from Melanie Wilson (Psycho with 6) and thought it sounded incredible.  I’m not an affiliate, nor have I yet tried it, but I loved what I was seeing on the website.  During the next round of deployment, I’m going to test it out with a pass for myself.  I use a lot more respite hours then and it’ll make for something fun, relaxing, and inexpensive to do.  If you’ve tried Movie Pass, let me know what you think in the comments!
