some of us are too busy that sometimes we forgot to treat ourself. sometimes we think of something that what can make other people's happy. like how can you make your kids, wife, husband, siblings, parents or the rest of the family family. we even buy stuff for them and treat them. but how about us, when was the last time we go out and treat ourself like going to one of the expensive restaurant, go to spa, body massage or anywhere that makes you feel like your queen or a king.. even just once in a year... i used to go to spa and full body massage. and go to derma clinic to have facial and etc.. though not often coz its very expensive. only if i feel like to treat myself. how about u.

Save up some money. And take yourself out and do something nice. Some times it is well worth taking that money and spending on something you'll enjoy. It will relax the mind and also help the heart. Don't be afraid to spend money on yourself especially to relax like a vacation.

Well, I do have a regular treat that I give myself as a reward for going grocery shopping. I always stop at Starbucks on the way home and get myself a caramel frappucino. But as far as treating myself to something bigger than that, it is very, very rare. The last time that I had a treat for myself was back in April for my birthday, we went out to eat at a nice restaurant without any kids. Our anniversary was a week ago and we weren't even able to get out of the house without kids. Honestly, to be able to go out without the kids from time to time is the biggest treat of all to me.

I have not given myself a treat for a long time. Partly I am so caught up with my work and also studies leaving me no time for myself. I think I should be giving myself a treat after my examinations tomorrow and so it would be fair for me after a long hard working months for exams and earning money to support myself. Sometimes we will be burnt out when we are doing things for real and we never reward ourselves, it can be a source of motivation for us after all.

A treat for me is getting out of the house and on the golf green. I haven't been able to do that this year and it's kind of got me down. But kids will be back in school in another two weeks so was talking to my sister about taking in some holes. I do shop for homes things, new curtains, bedspreads and things that everyone needs, but you know. I makes me feel good knowing I have those things in my home, so really they are for me because I'm calmer in my home because of what's in it. If that makes sense.

With all the hard work and stressful times we keep going through, we certainly deserve to give ourselves a treat some times. Not that I want to feel like a King( ha ha ! ), but as a reward for a long busy week, I often take myself to a nice resturant on Sundays for a grand brunch , a buffet with a huge variety of delicious cuisine to enjoy. I do that atleast twice a month every month.

I treat myself all the time. All work and no play isn't a very healthy life. You must always keep yourself happy. Because if your happy at all times you'll live a very filled life and long life too. Less stress in life will help you live longer and looking young. I try my best to treat myself whenever I work a nice long week and have some time to relax and enjoy some vices. It is difficult with a full schedule and lots of small things to do and combine wise takes a lot of your time. Money is to cost to relax especially good food. God bless

Once in a great while I'll treat myself to something special. You have to! I'm always doing something for someone else, and it seems like everyone else is always in need of my time, advice, whatever they need and I have just decided that if I don't take time off and spoil myself once in awhile, no on else will.....I don't ask for help, but I volunteer it all the time.

I think my last treat to myself was last year. I bought myself a new cellphone. I must say I'm really busy on a lo of things that I forgot to treat myself and give myself a break.

I am a mom and since then, I haven't had much time for myself. Lately I give myself a treat a few times a week. I make a homemade green tea mask! It's a great way to relax and it's good for my skin. I leave it on my face for about 30 minutes and afterwards, my skin glows! It's like a mini spa visit -- at home.
