When you’re making a list of all the good deeds you’re going to do, be sure to toss in one or two selfish acts too! Treat yourself to a favorite food or buy yourself a little gadget you’ve wanted for a while. The people in your life will heartily approve. Because when you do something for yourself, you make yourself happy. And when you’re happy, you’re more likely to do something for someone else. It’s simple logic, but it holds true.
