Reward for hard work

Monday, June 18, 2012

What do you give yourself as a reward when you've worked hard, stayed on track, and followed your plan?

My favorite reward and a really nice way to take care of myself is to have a massage. It's especially rewarding when I've really exerted myself physically and have sore or tight muscles. That's the reward I had this evening. Wonderful!

It is my great fortune that I have a wonderful massage therapist who comes to my house. Not having to get in the car and drive home after is fantastic. Gilad is generous, too. Although I book him for an hour session, he rarely gives less than 75-80 minutes.

Knowing that Gilad is coming over to give me a massage also motivates me. I clean my floor, tidy up, make sure the dishes are all washed, etc. Getting chores done that I sometimes overlook makes me feel good about my house.

If you haven't treated yourself in this manner, I highly recommend it. You end up feeling all cozy, relaxed, and right with the world. Happy Sunday evening!

    Just reading about it sounds relaxing. I like the bonus of getting the house in shape. And you're right - you do feel good when the house is clean and in order.

Like JulesRules, I'm still having trouble coming up with ways to reward myself, since food was my reward for so long. emoticon

You gave me something to think about.

    Sounds divine. Rewarding myself is still an area I have difficulty with.
