A Massage. I am in general not a fan of having strange people touch me, BUT. I love getting a massage. I love having a nice, quiet space to just be. I love having someone expertly press on that ridiculous knot in my back that I swear that evil work chair has given me. I love that I don't have to do ANYTHING except turn over. I even love the plinky relaxation music, which normally would have me punching the scan button on my radio.
Doing My Nails. Plain nails are a sign that I've been neglecting myself. I love vibrant nails. There are so many options for color and even texture [matte nail polish, glitter nail polish, suede nail polish, good old glossy nail polish] that I'm almost stymied by my choices. But every Sunday night, I sit down and watch something vapid and do my nails. And then I'm stuck there until they dry - unable to do the dishes or pick up laundry. Damn. I am NOT a fan of someone else doing my nails, because I can't stand the smell of that stuff, and if I want someone to touch me for that long, I'd rather be having a massage.
Reading a Book. I love books. LOVE them. And my biggest treat is getting a new book. It doesn't have to be something erudite or educational or uplifting. It can be trashy and silly. But a new book always puts me in a great mood. Plus, I don't have to worry that someone borrowed the book from the library and read it on the toilet. Gross.
Those are the things that I do to treat myself. What do you do?
