Go on treat yourself... you deserve it

Well, it’s officially the Christmas season, and everything festive is on peoples’ minds.

It certainly is a time when we start to think about how we share gifts with others and perhaps connect with family members who we haven’t seen in a while.

However, I would like to propose, for today, a day off from Christmas…a selfish Christmas moment, if you will. I suggest that today, you give yourself an early Christmas present - an indulgence. Reward yourself for everything you’ve done in the year and for well… just being the wonderful, unique you!

Here’s some suggestions for today’s, early Christmas present:

  • Enjoy a magazine and a coffee in peace and quiet for half an hour

  • Run a hot bath with a good book and a relaxing bath foam / candle

  • Book a meal out

  • Savour a nice glass of wine

  • Listen to a favourite music album

  • Watch a movie

  • Go for a long walk

  • Organise an evening out with friends

  • Treat yourself to your favourite cake / chocolate etc…

  • Go to a coffee shop and relax for a while with your favourite drink

  • Get a takeaway and take the night off cooking

  • Take a day off work just because!

  • Spend time with a friend

  • Have a beauty treatment

  • Have your nails done

  • Read a book

  • Have an early night

  • Get flowers / a plant for your home

  • Go and have a chat with a work colleague and not talk about work

My treat? Well, early this morning as I left the house to work, I lingered in a local park and gazed up in the sky at the shining spotlight of Venus. And as an additional indulgence; I can see a well-earned mince pie being added to the list.

Whatever you choose - enjoy… and wish yourself a Merry Christmas!
