Here’s Why You Should Treat Yourself

 One of the resolutions that you should try to embrace this year is the one where you stop feeling guilty for buying yourself things and start treating yourself instead. Treating yourself to new things isn't a bad thing to do. In fact, it’s recommended under the self-care umbrella. It can always be difficult to justify those random treats that you like to buy - especially when they’re at the cash register - but that doesn't mean that you should say no to them. 

Easing up on yourself and planning 2022 to be the year that you start putting yourself first is a smart thing to do. A part of that is going to be allowing yourself to buy things exclusively for one reason: because you want them. You do not need excuses, you do not need justifications and you do not need guilt to be any kind of reason why you want to buy something that’s just for you. From buying the best opal jewellery to choosing a new appliance for your hair care routine, you are allowed to just get something that makes you happy. You are allowed to buy something just because you want it. Here are five reasons that you should treat yourself - no guilt allowed.

  1. You will feel so much better. Taking the time to treat yourself is so important for your personal wellbeing. Life is supposed to be full of the things that you enjoy doing and if that includes buying things for yourself, you’re on the right track. You can feel refreshed and energised simply by choosing something for you that doesn't involve anyone else.

  2. Your mood will massively improve. When you choose to squeeze in treating yourself over treating other people, you’re going to lighten your mood, boost your energy and feel good on the inside. If you want to take a spa day and go and get a massage, go and get one. No guilt required when you’re literally improving your mental health!

  3. You recharge your ability to give. How much of yourself can you give and give without giving back to yourself? The answer: not much! There’s only so much that you can give to others before you have to replenish yourself. When you treat yourself, you’re going to be able to give back to others in a way that makes sense. Your ‘me’ time is a gift not just for you, but for the people who love you!

  4. It can be your motivation! Setting your own personal reward system is a smart thing to do when you want to feel like you have rewarded yourself. The light at the end of the tunnel is that you are going to be your own inspiration, and the treat you want the most is going to be the motivation you need!

  5. You won’t burn out. When you have time to treat yourself, you’re going to prevent yourself from burning out. You can avoid any chance of illness and burnout when you treat yourself well!
