Every once in a while it is nice to have a splurge. A splurge is a treat that you don’t get regularly and is extra special. A splurge can be anything you want it to be. You can have a splurge at anytime, or it can be used as a reward for accomplishing a goal, or a well-earned indulgence. Whatever the reason, giving yourself a splurge from time to time should be incorporated into your life.

A splurge doesn’t have to be something that will break the bank. Sometimes I splurge on a couple of pieces of expensive chocolate. It feels decadent to have such a sweet indulgence and one I do only on occasion. There are times when I save the chocolate for when I am taking a bath. There is something extra special about eating chocolate in a bubble bath. For a more substantial splurge I spend a half or full day at a spa. This is a non-fattening treat that soothes me both inside and out. There are times when I have a splurge just because, and other times I splurge because I feel as if I have earned it. I might use a splurge as a reward for achieving a goal or completing a difficult project.

The key to a splurge is it is a treat that you only receive every so often. If you give yourself a treat everyday, that is great, but it isn’t a splurge. A splurge is extra special, maybe a little more costly than what you do normally and should be out of the ordinary. It can be as simple as playing hooky one gorgeous afternoon and taking in a baseball game or taking off for the weekend to a favorite location. Splurges are extra special treats you give yourself on occasion that add special zests to life.


I know people that never splurge. They just don’t allow themselves to indulge. But an occasional splurge adds that extra special touch to life. I call it the cherry on top. It makes working hard all worth it. Think of a splurge as an extra special treat or reward you give yourself. You can have a splurge for no other reason other than you want one. You can use a splurge as a reward for a job well done or for achieving a goal. Why you splurge isn’t as important as the fact that you do from time to time. You deserve it.

Coaching Question

Are you ready for a splurge?

Coaching Challenge

This week make a list of things that would be a splurge for you. Make sure the list contains items that you normally would not indulge in. This guarantees that it really will be a splurge. The next time you are ready for a splurge your list will be ready and you will just have to choose an item from the list and off splurging you will go.
