Reflect and be kind to others
Pampering yourself doesn’t always mean hitting up a spa. Doing something as simple as spending a few minutes reflecting on your best qualities, closest values, and proudest achievements (a practice known as self-affirmation) can also make you feel kinder and more sympathetic toward yourself. In a study from Carnegie Mellon University, people who performed a similar exercise went on to donate more money than those who didn’t; they were also more willing to help pick up items that fell off a shelf during the experiment. So, spend some time going back within you for a boost of goodwill!
