Question of the Week: Favorite Indulgences

It’s important to take pleasure in life…stop and smell the roses and all that.

My favorite indulgences include eating my beloved Twizzlers, buying beautiful notebooks, and lounging on the couch all day with a stack of magazines and a cup of tea.

Indulging in something is supposed to be forbidden. We’re not supposed to be that lazy or selfish. But deprivation doesn’t make me a happy Sage.

I WANT to eat sugary candy. I WANT to fill my shelves with dozens of notebooks. I WANT to curl up on the the couch and blow off the laundry.

Part of my self-care routine is to recognize when I need a break. My challenge for you today is to indulge in something that you haven’t let yourself enjoy in a while. You deserve it!

In the comments below, let me know your favorite indulgences.

    I think I’ve said this before, but painting my nails is one of my favorite indulgences. I also enjoy drinking tea or hot chocolate while reading before bed, and buying nice underwear 🙂

      Yes! Buying nice underwear is an indulgence. I usually put it off until my undies are falling apart (TMI!), but buying nice undergarments is self-care too. Good one, Emily. 🙂

    Hmmm my indulgences… I’m also a sweets girl and I’m a mug slut as I’ve discussed on my blog 😉 I wish I could buy every mug I see but I do try to practice some restraint. Oh and I think this counts as an indulgence but there are days where I just love spending the whole day in PJs in bed just relaxing and recharging 🙂

      Oh yes, I’m a mug slut too! 🙂

    My indulgences always revolve around sweets. I have a ginormous sweet tooth!
