Take Back Your Self Care in May

In May as we celebrate Mother’s Day, the City of Largo wants to encourage all women to take time for themselves. From yoga classes, fitness programs, art, and  walking trails, the City of Largo and Largo Recreation offer diverse programming to promote self-care and healthy lifestyles. Here are a few ideas on what to do for a little "you" time. 

1. Rediscover a favorite hobby or find a new one
From art classes to sports leagues, to fitness classes, we are encouraging women to take some time to rediscover what they love or to explore a new hobby.

2. Have a Date Night
Whether it's a solo date, girls' night out or a date with your partner, Largo has a ton of great ways to have a fun night out. Check out a show at the Central Park Performing Arts Center (CPPAC), take a walk in one of our parks, or visit one of our local restaurants for a bite to eat. Have kids? We've got you covered with our Friday Night Fun program at both Highland and Southwest.

3. Take a Swim (or a slide)
What's better than a dip in the pool on a hot day? Take a swim at our large swimming pool at Southwest or become a kid again at Highland Family Aquatic Center and slide down our large twisty slide.

4. Read a Book or Listen to a Podcast
The Largo Public Library has a ton of different books and podcasts to listen to for a variety of interests. All you need is your library card!

- Access articles, news, reference sources, and more on women and self care through the Health & Wellness database and through the Psychology collection database. Login with your library card to view the lists!

Some items from our eResources:
- Libby/Overdrive eBooks & eAudiobooks on Women & Self-Care
- Freegal Playlists

5. Visit a local park
The City of Largo has over 15 parks to choose from, whether you want to sit and enjoy nature, walk a trail, throw a ball around with your dog, or feed the turtles. The City of Largo also has a connection to the Pinellas Trail on West Bay Drive that you can walk, run or ride your bike either North or South as far as you'd like to go.
