Treat Yourself

Every week I brose the Health section in The New York Times (one of my favorites along with Food, Travel and Style), and was struck by this article about "self-compassion."  The basic idea is that cutting yourself a break and judging your habits less harshly can actually help you exercise more, eat less, or succeed at whatever it is you're trying to improve.  Chances are you're not going to deny your friend the cookies she's craving (as long as it's not fifty cookies), so why not allow yourself the same occasional indulgence?
