Happiness boost: treat yourself to a treatment

This is where money does buy me happiness. 

Chronic pain can lead to depression and depression itself can cause also physical pain. Though I’m quite sure pain has not been a factor in my depression, I have suffered from chronic back pain for around 20 years now (since my teens that is). 
So as often as I can, I spend money on massages, acupuncture, physiotherapy etc. It is a very satisfying feeling laying on a table with the acupuncture needles stuck in your back and feeling absolutely nothing. Bliss.

Even if you’re not in pain, something like a hot stone massage is oh, so very relaxing. An acupuncture session is also a perfect excuse for an hour of me-time (all you busy parents out there!) – I usually fall asleep there. 

You just might want to make sure you have an opportunity to rest after your treatment – a massage tends to make at least me so relaxed, all I want to do for the rest of the day is sleep!
