A new study has found that almost 20% of people will treat themselves just for stepping out of their comfort zone, and another 20% do so just to post it on social media!
Almost 90% of people agree that it’s important to their well-being to regularly indulge in little luxuries.
But 45 percent admitted they are treating themselves less at the moment due to the cost-of-living crisis.
From buying a bar of chocolate to a coffee or beauty treatment and sleeping in, over half feel happy, 47 percent content and 25 percent calmer after treating themselves.
That ‘Magical’ Feeling
More than half of people also feel positive after treating someone else.
And two-thirds agreed they get a “magical” feeling when they receive an unexpected treat from a loved one or friend.
The ‘glow’ of a treat typically lasts for several hours, according to 34 percent polled via OnePoll, although 26 percent say they’ll get a thrill for days as a result.
Although many may be being more cautious of their spending due to the current cost-of-living crisis, 32 percent have still treated themselves within the past week and 22 percent in the past month.
