10 free ways to treat yo' self
From Mashable - August 6, 2017

As Donna and Tom always said, it's important to...

And what excellent advice that is. Whether you are a little down, you have been slaying the game lately, or it's just a regular ol' Tuesday, everyone deserves a treat every now and again.

But do not be fooled. Doing something nice for yourself does not have to be expensive. In fact, it does not even have to cost you a dime. Here are some great free ways to boost your mood, celebrate you, and TREAT YO SELF.

1. Have an at-home spa day

You do not need lots of money or a fancy spa to feel good and soak up some you time. There are plenty of at-home spa treatments you can do all by yourself. Give yourself a manicure and pedicure, try out one of those cool DIY face masks you have seen online everywhere, take some extra time and give your face or legs a really good shave. Doing something nice for yourself that feels expensive, but wo not cost you a dime. It will make you feel great on the inside and look great on the outside.

2. Take your (or someone else's) dog for a walk

Why is taking your dog for a walk on a nice day one of the best feelings in the world? There's something about holding the leash and letting your pup guide you that just makes you feel like you can take on the world. Your dog gets so happy, which in turn makes you happy. Between the fresh air and spending quality time with your pup, you will get an instant mood boost. If you do not have one, surely you know someone who would be glad to pass off their responsibility to you for an afternoon.

3. Go to the park and pet other dogs

If you do not have a dog, go to the park and say "hi" to other owners and their pups. With their owner's permission, pet some doggies and instantly feel happy. Leave your phone at home and enjoy all the goodness around you. Listen to the birds, watch the pups play, and take in the moment. Dogs do not care about who you are or how much you can afford. They just want their bellies rubbed.

4. Eat free snacks at work

If you are lucky enough to work somewhere that provides you with free snacks, take advantage! We do not recommend going overboard, but treat yourself after you do something productive or if you just made it into work that day. That deserves some praise, too.

5. Take a long, indulgent weekend nap

6. Eat all the gross, but amazing food you have in your fridge

7. Try free trials of streaming services

8. Look at cute animal Instagrams

9. Go to the library and check out a new book or movie

10. Bake something yummy
