7 Ways to celebrate Women’s Day in Sandton.

9 August marks National Women’s Day, a public holiday in South Africa. This year, it falls on a Tuesday, so if you need a long weekend, request leave for Monday prior and enjoy the things Sandton Central has to offer.

Let’s take this time to honour all women in South Africa for the incredible progress that has been made (and continue to strive towards) and for all the daily achievements of being multitaskers, entrepreneurs, mothers, career-growing gals, business owners, wives, creators, sisters, and friends, just to name a few.

This year’s theme states, ‘Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.’ In a true sense, this is what most women strive for as a daily accomplishment, so we won’t judge if you take this day as a reminder to celebrate you and all the women who surround you.

Top ways to spend Women’s Day in Sandton Central

  • Do the absolute minimal We’re in August, and this year might have taken its toll on you. So, if you feel like doing absolutely nothing, now is the time to do just that! Clear your diary and schedule, and spend your day at home. In case you’re planning on lying around, catching up on your favourite Netflix shows, grab some snacks from Pick n Pay in the Marc.
  • Indulge in chocolate – Before taking the peaceful day mentioned above, surprise the ladies around you by putting little chocolates on their desks. Most people love chocolate, and if they don’t, they soon will if you purchase from Lindt in Sandton City.
  • Set out one goal to attain – Life gets busy, and there’s always that one thing we say we’re going to do but never get to it. Plan your day around completing that task! For example, redecorate and reorganise your bedroom with new, trendy linen and accessories from Continental Linen in Benmore Centre.
  • Launch a campaign for a women’s cause – Create the feeling of togetherness with the ladies in your circle by paying it forward. Choose to donate sanitary items, girl clothing or baby items at a girls’ home or nearby orphanage once a month. It will mean so much to the receivers, and the angels donating will soon realise how grateful one should be for all they have.
  • Spend time with your mom – Spend quality time with the most wonderful woman in your life by taking her to her favourite restaurant, watching a new release at Ster-Kinekor in Sandton City, or cooking with her… You’ll be surprised by how much you’ll still learn from her.
  • Book yourself a well-deserved massage – It has various benefits, including reduced stress and increased relaxation, reduced pain and muscle soreness & tension. A massage can also help improve circulation, energy levels and alertness, as well as lower your heart rate & blood pressure, and improve immune function. Don’t wait another minute and book your spot at your nearest spa in Sandton.
  • Inspire other women – There are so many initiatives focused on empowering women in South Africa. Be part of the centring women in transformational development by Googling ‘women empowerment programmes in SA’. Read up about them, their goals and how you can get involved.

Women’s Day is about remembering how far we have come as a nation, and as a nation of women. Sandton Central wishes you a happy and powerful Women’s Day!
