Happy Friday, everyone! We’re almost to the weekend, which is saying a lot considering this week we not only had to get through all the regular stuff life throws at us — we also had to get through our fourth nor’easter.

That said, we are in need of some serious self-care this weekend. Whether that be by grabbing a girlfriend and heading to a workout class or staying in and cooking up a storm, here’s five ways you can practice self-care in Philly right now.

Try a New Barre Class

TORC Yoga in Old City has just made some schedule upgrades, and that means they’ve now got barre on the schedule. There’s nothing like an hour of sweating to get those endorphins boosted, yeah? Swing by on Friday at 6 p.m., Saturday at 9:30 a.m., or Sunday at noon. Not a client here? You can get a month unlimited for $49.

Shop the Whole Foods Beauty Sale

It’s Whole Foods Beauty Week, and that means all of our fave all-natural face masks, nail polishes, lip scrubs, and more are on sale. If self-care is all about a sheet mask and a glass of wine for you, good news: you can get both at your local Whole Foods.

Work Out for a Good Cause

Doing good for others does good for you too, and with Freehouse Fitness’ 30-minute Saturday Bounce classes on their mini trampolines, you can accomplish both. The short workout (on the schedule at 11:30 a.m.) costs just $6 — 100-percent of which is donated to Girls on the Run to help them build confidence for young girls through running. Now, doesn’t that sound like a Saturday well spent?

Do SUP Yoga at a Spa

What’s more relaxing than yoga followed by a spell in a eucalyptus steam room? Um, nothing that we can think of. This Sunday, head to the Rittenhouse Spa & Club for a yoga class that’ll take place on a paddle board in the pool with Aqua Vida. Afterwards, you’ll have access to the spa’s tea service, sauna, steam room, and fitness facility. There are three classes on the schedule — and there are still spots open in the 8 AM session.

Spend Sunday Meal Prepping

As the saying goes, Sunday well-spent makes your week way better (or, you know, something like that). Take care of your healthy-eating needs for the week by spending an hour or an afternoon meal prepping. Batch cooking meals, chopping up veggies, or just writing up a meal schedule for the week can take a ton of stress out of making good food choices. Not sure where to get started? Here’s a guide to everything you need to know about meal prepping.
