Apparently, June 18 is National Splurge Day. When I first read about this day, I just assumed that it was related to that wonderful Treat Yo’ Self episode of Parks & Rec. It turns out that National Splurge Day actually dates back to 1994. (I wonder if it would have gained more traction if it had a cooler name?)
Anyway, dogs can teach you a lot about how to treat yourself right and live life to the fullest. Here are some tips I’ve picked up from my own canine life coaches.
You can take a day off from that diet. Channel your inner pup and eat with gusto.
Heck, just take the whole day off. Curl up with a book or watch your favorite TV show.
Surround yourself with things you love…
… and with the people (and puppies) you love.
Take a walk with a friend. It’ll do you good.
Try to take things in stride. If you trip, just shake it off and keep going,
Stop worrying about what everyone else thinks. Play your favorite song… and then dance your tail off.
Never underestimate the importance of a good nap (and always be prepared).
If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a relaxing bath.
