Treats Are Good For You
I treat myself regularly. I try not to binge on sweets, and I try to find good deals when I shop. Sometimes, though…eating too much chocolate, or buying those shoes that are too expensive feels GOOD! Turns out, I could be a scientist!

Scientists say that self-regulation makes people more inclined to feel dissatisfied — proving the old adage that a little of what you like really does do you good.
What’s that one thing you can’t help but treat yourself to?
