Do You Try To Treat Yourself To Something Special Every Day?

I DO!! I try to get to my favourite coffee shop every day to have a mocha latte. Sometimes my husband comes with me. Today he came with me, and we each had one. We both love mochas at The Second Cup. They're way better than Starbucks. Other times we go to the A N A F (Army Navy Airforce club, like the American VFW...Hubby's a Viet Nam vet so we can both get in there) and have a drink at their bar. Their alcohol and cigarettes (he smokes, I don't) are much cheaper than they would be anywhere else. We love doing little things to treat ourselves. We both agree that we deserve to treat ourselves, as well as treat eachother. What do you do to treat yourself?

As much as i wanted to treat myself to a fancy restaurant, to a salon or a spa, i can't because i don't have a real job.. I've been suffering from an illness and that's the main factor why i can't have a job.. i hate it, i really really do!!! sometimes, i just want to break down and cry because i feel so sorry for myself for not being able to do things i used to do before and for not being able to do things i have never done before.. you know, all i'm asking is a miracle..

I fully understand your frustration. I recently was forced to leave work as a computer person because I am now legally blind. It's a progressive disease and I am not at all used to it. It's very frustrating not to be able to perform things that you never thought about before.

I do not treat myself to anything every day. Usually, I treat myself to something once a week or even less. I really feel guilty spending money on myself especially quite often or spending money on myself in large amounts. I'm not sure why, but it just makes me feel rather uncomfortable when I do that. It makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong so I guess that is why I limit myself to the amount of times I treat myself to something or to large purchases.

I am not in a position financially to treat myself though things are getting better there is still a ways to go before I can think of buying anything for myself Hopefully by the end of the year I will be in a much better place. I did go out for my birthday and that was great but I didn't have to pay for it Matt did lol

My treat is to wake up before anyone else and have a cup of coffee and watch the news. It's really nice to be able to listen to the news and not have someone talking to me LOL

I don't.....I usually try to treat myself once a week...because my downfall is chocolate or ice cream I need to stay away from both of them for the most part but do let myself have one once in a while...then it's a trip to dairy queen for a turtle waffle bowl sundae..I have lost a little weight and I am trying to keep it off!

hello danishcanadian Do You Try To Treat Yourself To Something Special Every Day? yes, i do try to treat myself to something special every day and that is usually some kind of a cola. lol i always make coffee in the mornings at home. and that is nice that you get to go out to purchase your mocha latte. i do not know if i have ever had one of those before. i probably haven't. lol and my daily soda or two makes me happy. after that i have my coffee in the mornings, then in a little while, i like to have my soda for the day. then i drink lots of ice water in the afternoons, sometimes iced tea, sometimes hot tea, or even hot chocolate. and in the summertime, i might even drink myself a nice cold milkshake. take care and have a beautiful evening.

I try even if its just finding time for my self doing something I like. Or going somewhere nice. Or treating my self to something nice and new. Or maybe Just eating something I have not had for a while to treat myself. With the economy being tight now it is hard to do somethings but I try my best to do something nice for me. Rather it be every day or just once a week.

I guess I just take time for myself to listen to music. Music has always been a friend to me.

Yes, I think is important to treat yourself because life is too short. I usually get a white chocolate mocha at my favorite coffee shop ,and I go to a spa to do manicure and pedicure and sometimes I even have a nice massage.

I try to have at least one pint of Guinness a week. Unfortunately, a pint where I live now costs the same as a 6-pack did in the 'States.

I don't do this every day but only once in a while like on special occasions like eating out at some nice place with my husband. But this year we are cutting all these to the very very minimum and eating at home a lot. But every year on my birthday, apart from celebrating with my husband by going out for a meal, I would buy myself a present. So it would be again this year.

No I don't! I think at most I could say I treat myself to something special every week but not every day. Sometimes I think I am quite harsh on myself. When I am on a tight budget, I tend not to treat myself with anything special until the tough time is over with. But I understand sometimes I do need a treat *smiles*.

The answer is YES & NO!~ HahaYes, I do treat myself once in a while but not everyday. Being a food lover, more often in terms of food, haha. Places like D.O.M.E or Nandos once in a while I go with my wife. Once in a long while, I'll buy something real expensive that I've longed for that I've wanted but have put aside for a period of timeIt just gives you the extra push to go on & do better in life

hi danish..not really everyday..but i guess once or twice a month..treating something special about myself means simply having a visit to a saloon for a pedicure or manicure...after that it feels good...

Hi Danishcanadian, Much as I would love to treat myself everyday, but due to budget constraints, I just have to treat myself at least once a week especially during bad trip days. A cup of Tall white choco mocha from Starbucks will perk me up. At times, window shopping is the answer. Every other week,I have my nails done and hot oil for my hair. For much cheaper treats to battle the gloomy days, I sing my heart out from our videoke machine or watch TV series in a marathon. FRIENDS series always make me laugh. But I also find Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural stress relievers as well.
