Self-Care: Treat Yourself!

Monday, I took myself out on a solo lunch date.  Nothing fancy--just enjoyed a chocolate-banana soy smoothie; then picked up a to go java to sip back at the office.  It was a treat, though--nonetheless.

This past weekend, while poring over the coming week's calendar, I realized I have a salon cut + highlights scheduled for Thursday evening.  Although some may view this as "basic maintenance,"  I prefer to see it as "a luxurious block of time to treat myself."

Remembering Thursday's salon expedition spurred me to pencil in a few more dates for next week: a pedi on Tuesday and a massage on Wednesday. Yum, yes? Both these treats are long overdue, BTW!

Pull out your calendar and schedule a few treats for yourself.  Would love to hear what you come up with!

Joy, peace and happy Wednesday! T.
