Start a habit of giving yourself a gift. It doesn’t have to be after a big project or a big win, make it just because your heart and soul deserve it.
TIPS FOR PICKING A REWARD
- Don’t pick a reward that negates what you’ve just achieved. For example, if you’ve decluttered, don’t buy stuff as a reward. If you’ve sorted out a great morning routine don’t reward yourself with taking a nap!
- Pick a relevant reward that is something to do with what you’ve just done – to reinforce your good work. For example, you’ve finally sorted your bedroom and organized it all – so treat yourself to an early night and enjoy the room a little!
- Pick something that truly motivates you to get the job done. If you can look forward to something then it drives you to get the job finished that much quicker.
- Make the reward something easy to achieve quickly – for example, don’t reward with a holiday if it’s going to take you a year to save up…
- Reward yourself with a treat that’s on the same level as the task. Small rewards for small tasks, and large for large ones.
- Remember, rewards don’t have to cost anything – you can get pleasure out of the most simple things if you allow yourself to really enjoy them.
