    Anytime I go to Littl, I indulge myself

    Are my senteces correct and natural?

    1. Anytime I go to Littl, I indulge myself in the exquisite bakery; especially the freshly-baked chocolate croissants.
    2. After the exam period, everybody indulges in laziness and parties.
    3. After a hectic day of workout at the gym, the man was sweating profusely. I thought intense workout was a hassle, but turned out he was indulging himself.
    To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.

    I think the first one would be okay with a little tweaking.

    I was hoping you would take the first try. Okay. Perhaps;

    Anytime I go to Littl, I indulge myself in the baked goods at the bakery there, especially the freshly baked chocolate croissants.

    Note that anytime is an adverb. The phrase you were looking for is any time.

    If you mean the supermarket, it's Lidl.

    The store is called Lidl, not Littl.

    Re: Anytime I go to Littl, I indulge myself

    I always mix up the adjective and the name of the shop. xD

    Could you please take a look at my two other sentences?

    Indulge in laziness really doesn't work. They could, maybe, indulge in lazing around, but I'd look for a different way to say this.
