weekly chocolate-treating yourself well

“One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats.” -Iris Murdoch

Many of us wait until we’ve accomplished our big goals-a promotion at work, our goal weight, finishing our first marathon-to give our selves a big treat. Those big treats are essential; they are a tangible sign of celebrating our accomplishments.

But what about everyday treats as we’re working towards our goals? These are just as, if not more, important than the treat we give ourselves for the big finale. In The Joy Diet by Martha Beck, Beck encourages her readers to give themselves three treats a day. “One for every risk you take and two just because you’re you. No exceptions, no excuses.”

Learn how to treat yourself well. It’s an important component to a happy life.
