New non-food reward

Monday, May 20, 2013

I have found a great non-food reward. This morning I finished cleaning the entire downstairs, the master bathroom and got my bed made. So I sat down at a jigsaw puzzle I started last night. My late hubby never liked jigsaw puzzles so we never did them. Now since it is just me I have a corner of the living set with with a table and good lighting and I take breaks and work on the puzzle for a bit. This "simple" one is going to take me awhile. Friday my son, his wife and 7 yr old grandson are coming for a visit.

I have a couple more advanced puzzles I also bought and they are going to keep me busy this winter.

But, imho it beats sitting in front of the tv eating junk food because I am bored.

    Also, doing jigsaw puzzles helps exercise the brain! Definitely enjoy it. Find all the types of puzzles out there: there's not just lots of pieces, but 3D, double sided, etc. Look for a game store near you and check out all the have. Also look online and see what puzzles you can find that will give you an interesting challenge.

    Super idea! Keeps your mind and hands busy, and you sure don't want to spill anything on your puzzle.
