How to Celebrate and Reward Yourself Without Food
We all deserve a little reward for hard work. The promise of something good when we reach a significant milestone (or at the end of a challenge) can help us keep going and succeed. In the past, you might have celebrated life’s achievements with food. Perhaps it was that glazed donut you’d been craving for breakfast, or maybe it was a fully-loaded pizza shared with the family.
The celebration of a job well done is great, but rewarding yourself with food might result in weight gain and encouraging unhealthy eating habits. That’s not to say there is anything wrong with enjoying yourself and eating what you like now and again but, in this article, we’ll take a look at some non-food rewards that give you all the recognition and positivity you crave without the calories.
Treat Yourself to New Workout Clothes
Whether you’ve just taken to the treadmill or you’re an aerobics junkie, treating yourself to a new exercise outfit will not only put a spring in your step, but also remind you of the progress you have made every time you look in the mirror.
Buy a New Book
There is nothing better than curling up with a good book at the end of a long day. Books are a great reward, especially for those mini-goals you set yourself, such as losing another inch off your waist or sticking to your keto diet like a boss for an entire week.
Book a Relaxing Massage
When it comes to truly spoiling yourself and your body, nothing comes close to a relaxing massage. You can choose to visit a day spa for that extra special treatment, or you might want to arrange a massage in your own home. From hot stone therapy to an invigorating sports massage, there’s a type of massage to suit everybody.
Invest in a New Kitchen Gadget
A healthier lifestyle might just mean you’re spending more time in your kitchen preparing meals and planning menus. To make life easier, why not reward yourself with one of the many amazing kitchen gadgets on the market today? A new spiralizer will make light work of creating fresh courgetti, or a multicooker can cook fantastic and healthy meals for all the family in minutes.
