Everyone has their own idea of what they consider to be a treat. This will be influenced by an individual’s taste, disposable income, lifestyle, values and general outlook on life.

I love having a cappuccino in a nice coffee shop. Sometimes I decide to try a different café and look forward to the experience. I read reviews and plan the outing. I get a kick out of sitting in a café sipping a cappuccino but if I did it every day it wouldn’t be a treat anymore. I wouldn’t want to have a cappuccino maker at home because it would mean having a frothy coffee when I go out would no longer be special.

If you have been around for a while you may remember some of the simple things that were a treat when you were a child. For me these included soft drinks, icecream on a stick, multi coloured balloons (the ones with swirly patterns on them), a new colouring in book and the bush biscuits you only got after a trip to the swimming pool.

Many of these types of things are part of day to day living for children these days, or at least for some children. (They probably have chocolate covered biscuits instead of the bush biscuits.) Takeaway meals, a trip to the movies complete with copious snacks and various forms of expensive entertainment are frequent events. I wouldn’t class such things as treats if they are a regular occurrence.

It’s the same for adults. Many material things once considered a treat are commonplace now. However, a treat doesn’t have to involve spending money. The most enjoyable treats and the ones that most benefit our health and wellbeing may be those that are free.

Perhaps your idea of a treat is sleeping in over the weekend. It could be a trip to the library, art gallery or a free museum. Maybe it is some ‘me time’ spent alone to recharge your batteries. What about reading a book in a quiet spot in the garden? Alternatively, it could be time visiting a friend. Something may be a treat to you simply because you aren’t in a position to do it very often. It may be a treat because it makes you laugh and feel good.

Part of my enjoyment of a treat activity can be the planning and anticipation. This often adds to the fun or pleasure for me.

To me treats are treats because they are not an everyday occurrence. A treat is something that makes me happy. It is good to sometimes give oneself a treat and can add fun and variety to life.
