Kudos to SANDIEGOJOHN who had one of his blog posts featured here on SP a couple of days ago. He also had this great idea in response to my last blog post, entitled "WHY I WANT TO WRITE POLL QUESTIONS FOR SPARKPEOPLE!":

"I say you start writing them here in your blog. Build up a fan-base and see where it takes you!"

Thanks, SANDIEGOJOHN, I'm doing just that, starting right now. : )

I think so many of us have gotten into the disastrous habit of eating for reasons other than hunger. Usually these reasons are emotionally based. Sometimes we need to be creative in finding other things to meet these emotional needs. So, I think I'll start by focusing on such an issue. Here's the question:

When you want to "treat" yourself with something other than food, what is your favorite sense to indulge?

A. Sight

B. Sound

C. Smell

D. Touch


F. Something else (Note it in the comments section, please.)

Thanks for reading my blog! Please "like" it, if you liked this question & the options.

Happy sparking and sensing, everyone!
: )

    I'd have to say ESP. I have no idea why some things pop into my head. I don't succumb to them anymore, though, because I know that if I DON"T do it, the desire will pass no matter how strong it is. Always.

As far as writing poll questions, I wish Spark would let you. I have answered all their polls and they won't let you re-answer them, even though your answer may have changed over time. When I asked about it, they said it was too hard to come up with a new poll every day. Maybe you have come up with the answer!

    A great question and I really gave my answer some thought.

Sound. I'm most likely to treat myself with new music.

    Very thought provoking question!
I can think of indulgences in all areas, when I really give some thought to it! I think I need to develop more other sensory indulgences and not be so focused on taste and sense of full tummy. I do find that I like some "indulgences" built into my day........
like shower in AM, scented lotion, color in clothing. So your question has made me think more about non-food indulgences and how to incorporate them into my day.
Good luck with your polls. Sandiegojohn had a great idea.
