2. Celebrate with Games
If you’re going for office or a team meeting then plan out a few games with various rewards within your circle, this can prove to be a fun activity.
Make sure that you include a few questions about women empowerment as well.
A pop quiz about various Famous Women who are doing great in their career is definitely a point to look forward to, get inspired and worth working on.
Ask everyone a simple question: For International Women’s Day 2019 and beyond, how will you #BalanceforBetter?
And post the answers on all social media platforms (Of course after seeking the person’s approval.)
3. Join a March/ Attend a Women Networking Event
There are various places which hold a March on such important events which are for a greater cause.
Such places will conduct events with the theme of #BalanceforBetter, so take out your inputs and points for the same, share your knowledge and be a part of these events.
4. Promote Gender Equality at the Workplace
A lot many workplaces have started following a trend of celebrating these International events and Women’s Day is one such event which is on everyone’s list.
It is definitely time to make the most out of this opportunity and express your thoughts about gender equality.
Start off by stating some facts and figures about women empowerment and how the time has changed for us women, which you can easily get through the internet and include a life lesson as well (Can be your personal Experience) in the ending note.
5. Sort out your Finances
Getting empowered has its own perks! With a confident frame of mind, you will feel confident enough to face the harsh realities of the world.
And coming from experience I can back you up on the point that our Financial situation is one such harsh condition which needs to be dealt with and can’t be procrastinated any further.
6. Hangout with Girl Gang
How to Celebrate Women’s Day you ask?! Well, this celebration definitely cannot go on without lots of women participating in the same.
There are various restaurants around you which will plan special menu and discount for your special day, so make the most of it and plan an outing with your girl gang whom you’re not able to meet with otherwise.
Drink, laugh, eat (Don’t watch out for calories) and simply enjoy this day with your girls, I’m sure there’s a lot to catch up to, so I might suggest you hit a pub or restaurant a bit early.
And if you prefer an even more personal space then celebrate in a friend’s home or at your home, order food online from Caviar or Restaurant (They offer various discounts on delivery) and spend quality time with your best friends.
7. Pamper yourself
Feel like doing something different this year to celebrate Women’s Day?! Then this is exactly what you should do.
Hit a salon or go shopping, choose the thing that relaxes you to every bit. Go on a solo spree to spend some quality time with yourself.
Sometimes even a good bathtub book reading session proves to be as rejuvenating as the happiness of achieving your office targets or your fitness goals. 😉
So, this day indulge in the activity that you LOVE doing and don’t seek for approvals from anyone! (This is our day girls, Enjoy it to the fullest)
