Do something fun: non food-related treats
It’s Friday, and I always want a treat on Friday to mark the end of the working week. (Even though I’ve only been back in the office since Wednesday.) Easy treats tend to be food-related – I’ve got several boxes of Christmas choccies still, just waiting to be opened, I’ve been good and not had any for the past couple of days.
And you deserve a treat too, right?
Definitely! We both deserve a really good treat – something lasting, something which will make us feel buoyed-up rather than guilty afterwards. So, today I made a list of mine, things which I find fun or relaxing:
- Facepack (chocolate scented!)
- Bubble bath by candlelight
- Reading a few chapters of one of my new books (I got lots for Christmas)
- Buying myself a favourite magazine
- Sales shopping!
- Listening to a new episode of a podcast
- Playing computer games
None of these (apart from sales shopping) cost much time or money. Try making your own list: grab a bit of paper and scribble down as many things as you can think of that would be a real “treat” for you.
Then pick one for tonight and one for tomorrow, and enjoy them, savour them like fine chocolate truffles. (Or gobble them up in a rush, like a bar of Dairy Milk, if that suits you better!)
