spa relax

You deserve to spoil yourself every now and then. It doesn’t matter what you’re going through, how much money you make, or if you have a partner who spoils you on a regular basis. You need that little bit of pampering from time to time to be able to go about your day without feeling like you’re walking around with an angry bear inside your head.

Spoil yourself a little. Life is tough, and it can be easy to forget about those things that make you happy. You work hard, so don’t feel guilty for doing something nice for yourself every once in a while. In fact, guilt has no place on this list.

Maybe you are thinking, “Well, duh! I have to spoil myself because I am awesome.” If that’s the case, then your answer is correct and congratulations on being amazing! However, suppose you are still unsure about how much good self-care can do for yourself or maybe just need a few more reasons why it will benefit your life in so many ways. In that case, this list is perfect for you. Here we go:

Why Do You Need To Be Spoiled

Spoiling yourself doesn’t mean giving up your sense of responsibility or acknowledging that you can no longer take care of yourself. It simply means allowing yourself to do something nice for yourself while still taking steps towards bettering and improving your life. You deserve to be spoiled every once in a while. You deserve to have your needs met, and your desires fulfilled. You deserve all of the things that you need, not just what is necessary for survival. 

Indulge In The Yumminess 

Spoil yourself by eating delicious food. Indulge in something nice today, even if it’s just buying takeout instead of cooking dinner or grabbing coffee on your way home from work. You’ll feel better about doing something good for yourself once in a while.

I Love It. Therefore I Am

Spoil yourself with an activity that you love to do, whether it’s reading a book or going for a walk.

Let Go 

Let go of negative thoughts holding you back. Instead, be present with what’s happening now because this moment is the only thing that matters.

You Deserve It

Never forget that no one else deserves to take care of YOU but YOURSELF. If anyone ever tells you otherwise, kindly tell them they don’t get a say.

Pay It Forward

Do something nice for someone else while doing something really nice for yourself. Another way to look at self-care is that it will lead to you looking at life differently. You can’t help but feel good when sharing feelings of gratitude and provide others with the same happiness they give you. Suppose you just can’t bring yourself to spoil yourself. In that case, there are plenty of ways that you can contribute to the happiness and well-being of your loved ones by treating them with a little something special from time to time. Here are some examples: offer someone their favourite drink when they come home after work or give an unexpected gift such as flowers for no reason at all. It will put a smile on their face.  

Schedule Me-Time 

Take time for yourself. When was the last time you carved out some me-time? Make an appointment, make a plan, do something nice for someone else while doing something really nice for yourself. Maybe even go somewhere. Explore your surroundings, meet new people or perhaps just sit in silence and take it all in around you. Because sometimes there’s nothing better than having alone time away from distractions. Take some “me” time at least once every other day to watch an episode from one of those shows you’ve been meaning to see or read a book without interruption so that you can get lost in another world.

It’s Not A Once-Off

Self-care is a long-term investment. Remember this: self-love, gratitude and kindness are all things that will benefit you in the long run. They may seem like small acts of taking care of yourself, but they can be some of the most critical steps to creating lasting change within your own life.

Reminders To Yourself

Remind yourself why it’s okay to take time for YOURSELF. Write down on sticky notes or something similar several reasons why you need to spoil yourself, so you have them ready whenever someone tries to tell you otherwise. Perhaps even put these little reminders somewhere where everyone who walks into your home, office or bedroom will see them every day.

Happy Heart, Happy Life 

Spoiling yourself is good for your health. A new study recently discovered that taking time for yourself actually reduces the risk of heart disease. In addition, spoiling yourself can actually make you happier. Another study found that those who practice self-care activities regularly were more likely to be happy with their lives. Of course, this isn’t a coincidence. It’s because they’re doing things for themselves and allowing themselves to feel good.

Spoil Your Body

You only get one, so why not take care of it? Whether you want to eat healthier or workout at home, there are many ways to do it. Plus, research shows exercising can make us happier, too. Yay! 

Happiness Spreads 

Spoiling yourself often means making your loved ones happier too. Research has shown that those who spend time doing things they enjoy for themselves are happier and much more likely to positively influence their loved ones. Plus, there’s nothing better than seeing someone you love happy.

Spoiling Yourself Is An Investment 

Self-care is an investment. In this case, it will make your life exponentially better in the long run and allow yourself opportunities you never thought were possible. Before because now you have the time, so why not? You deserve all of these possibilities, so spoil yourself with them today.

Make It A Daily Occurrence 

Don’t forget about little acts of self-care every day. It seems like such small steps, but just taking a little bit of time out every day to do something nice for yourself can make such a difference in the long run. But don’t forget those big moments as well! Plan something unique and spoil yourself with it. You deserve it.

Only You Can Do It

Self-care is essential not just because we need it but because others need us. Remember that everyone needs someone at some point or another and if you’re always putting your own needs on hold, who will be there when they need support. No one else deserves to take care of YOU, but YOURSELF, so treat yourself.

Spoil Yourself Your Way 

You don’t need to spend thousands on a spa package or massage just because everyone else does that. Do what makes YOU feel good. If an ice cream sounds more appealing than some organic vegetables, then order yourself one with all those delicious toppings.

Spoil Yourself But Stay Smart About It 

It’s okay to indulge once in a while. But make sure these indulgences are actually making you happy instead of dragging you down further into guilt-land or, worse yet, debt. Be smart about rewarding yourself too often. Make time for self-care daily by adding “me time” into your schedule. Find something you love to do and make it happen often. Spoiling yourself doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. You can find ways to spoil yourself that are free or cheap, and they feel just as good. It’s essential to take time for yourself every day so that you stay healthy both mentally and physically. 

Date Time

Go on a date with someone special in your life (even if it’s just the cat). The time spent together will be good for both of you, and getting out is always healthy.

Save For Your Splurges

Put aside money each month designated explicitly as ‘splurge’ money. You’ll enjoy it more knowing that you worked for it and didn’t just use your regular income. And then splurge it on you! It’s time you indulge in your guilty pleasures and spoil yourself. Stop scrolling past articles like Popular women’s watches. Instead, click on the links and buy it. 


Take a weekend trip to somewhere new every quarter of the year (for example, one month in New York City, one month at the beach, etc.). It doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy. Even going camping with friends can be fun.

Bubble Spoils 

Another superb way to spoil yourself is to take a bubble bath with scented candles and soft music. This can help soothe nerves while also helping you relax after a stressful day at work or school. The warm water works wonders when paired with lovely smells from body wash and other products used during bath time. If you’re not much of a candle person, then consider using some aromatherapy oils instead. This should provide many benefits as well, including relaxation being one of them. You could even add an Epsom salt soak into the mix for an extra special treat.

You’re worth the effort of taking care of yourself, so don’t hesitate – spoil yourself. Your body is the only one you have, so take care of it. Your mind is your biggest tool in life, and if it’s not working correctly, then nothing will go right for you. Playing with your hair, putting on that lip gloss or buying yourself something new is not frivolous at all. It’s about taking care of yourself and loving yourself in the process.
