Side Piece Pizza Turns Fiction Into Reality For Treat Yo’ Self Day 2022

Let Side Piece Pizza Help You Celebrate Treat Yo’ Self Day Your Way 

October 13th is unofficially official “Treat Yo’ Self” Day after the iconic episodes featured in Parks and Recreation. What is “Treat Yo’ Self” Day? As the character, Tom describes: “Treat. Yo’. Self. Once a year, Donna and I spend a day treating ourselves. What do we treat ourselves to? Clothes. Treat yourself. Fragrances. Massages. Treat yourself. Mimosas. Fine leather goods…It’s the best day of the year.” This fictional feature became a real-life phenomenon after the first episode featuring “Treat Yo’ Self” day aired in 2011 because aside from its hilarity, the premise for treating yourself is actually beneficial for mental health. 

What Does It Mean To Treat Yo’ Self?

The other character of Parks and Rec associated with “Treat Yo’ Self” Day, Donna, explains there are different ways to do it. She says, “It’s not just a day where you go to the spa and then the mall. The point is to pamper yourself.” A “treat” doesn’t necessarily mean a reward, which most people relate it with, nor is it always a physical object. In actuality, a treat is giving yourself something or doing something simply because you want to. It can be monetary, a small physical indulgence, or even just allowing yourself time to do something you enjoy.
