If you decide to practice self care, there are multiple guilt-free things you can choose from that are beneficial when practiced in moderation.

Definition of Guilty Pleasure
The very definition of guilt is “the fact of having committed a specified or implied offense or crime,” – but there is no crime in nurturing yourself. Even the word indulge, which means allowing oneself to enjoy a particular pleasure, bears a negative spin. With these notions, we would like to unwind any negativity surrounding healthy ways to honour yourself, as guilt has no place in activities that support your well-being. After all, treat means to act in a certain way, with treats being out-of-the-ordinary events or items that give pleasure.

Guilt Free Your Healthy Treat
Believe it or not, the best guilt free treats can be much more than traditional chocolates. There are several options for how to treat yourself like a queen or king. So, think outside the sweet box to nurture yourself in ways that enhance self-care without the aftermath of regret. Here are some healthy ways to treat yourself that you can do daily:

  • How to treat yourself without spending money: While buying yourself that new on-trend look may seem like a treat, if you cannot afford it, spending money unnecessarily is the antithesis of treating yourself.
  • Resist the temptation to shop so that you can eliminate the shock of bloated credit card bills. While you may miss the serotonin hit of clicking “pay now” or receiving compliments for new outfits, your bank account will thank you in the long run.
  • Establish a budget and stay within your means. It may not seem fun, but financial stability is the gift that keeps giving.
  • Give yourself a mid-day break with a power nap when you feel tired.
  • Listen to your favourite tunes and sing or dance along, whatever helps recharge your batteries.
  • Take a walk outside and pay attention to the colour of the sky, the breeze, the plants, and the sounds of birds, marvelling at nature’s creations. Or listen to a juicy podcast if that is what you like.
  • How to treat yourself at home: Treat yourself to a more harmonious home with cleaner closets and cupboards. It may seem like a daunting task but start small and clean out one drawer or shelf at a time, and soon, you will realise how your new clutter-free space is the ultimate reward.
  • When you are all done, you can even curl up with a juicy book for a mini-escape in the middle of the day.
  • When you are not sure if the path you are on is respecting and nurturing yourself, ask yourself what a person who loves and respects themselves would do and emulate that.
  • How to treat yourself with respect: It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best things you can do is to put yourself first. When you fuel your mind and body with positivity and goodness, you honour and respect yourself and will ultimately be a better partner, parent, employee, or friend. Here’s how:
  • Listen to your mind and body, providing it what it needs. Denying yourself adequate rest, food, and relaxation is the opposite of showing respect. A solid work ethic is admirable and self-esteeming, but pushing through when you are tired or hungry is not self-indulgent, nor does it earn you a merit badge of respect.
  • Show your body gratitude for all it does by exercising, eating a healthy, nourishing diet, and treating your physical wellness with respect.
  • Read a self-help book, take a class, and take time to meditate to improve your mind and respect your mental health.
  • Pursue a goal you have been putting off. OK, the action takes effort, but the reward and satisfaction you will feel once you reach the finish line is one of the best treats of all! Break it down into small, bite-sized steps to make it easier, and before you know it, you will have reached the finish line!
  • Set boundaries. Removing yourself from unhealthy situations is another way to show yourself love and respect. It may not feel like a treat, but the emotional peace you feel afterward is a treat for your soul!
  • Give yourself a break from perfection. Accepting your mistakes, humanness, and imperfections will help lighten this unattainable quest.
  • How to treat yourself with guilt free chocolate treats: Don’t want to skip the sweet treat altogether? You don’t have to! If chocolate brings you joy, there are several ways you can enjoy it beyond decadent sweets and desserts. Instead of a chocolate chip cookie, slice of cake, or ice cream, you can treat yourself to a healthier piece of dark chocolate with minimal sugar and fat. Bearing in mind how chocolate is good for you, from its antioxidant, circulation-boosting effects, proven anti-inflammatory benefits for the heart, and benefits for the brain and gut health, there is no reason to feel guilty about it. Or you can try guilt free sweet treats like chocolate milk or pudding made with low-fat or non-fat milk to get your chocolate fix. And you do not have to stop there! You can satisfy your chocolate craving with chocolate-infused natural skin care products minus the worry about weight gain or blood sugar spikes. Applying it topically will allow you to experience its moisturizsing, smoothing, softening, and soothing effects guilt-free.
