The best reward for your dedication when you reach a goal should be one that invests back into your journey, rather than one that distracts from it. Whether that means staying on top of your macros your Nutrition Coach assigns or hitting a new PR at the gym, there are so many ways to celebrate that don’t involve food.
Treat yourself to:
Work hard, rest hard.
Allow yourself to unplug and pamper in a way that feels luxurious to you. That could be a trip to the spa, a zen afternoon in the wilderness, a couple of hours on the couch with a book or whatever makes you feel relaxed. For myself, the beach is my special place (and, it’s free!).
Celebrate your hard work each week by acknowledging your Bright Spot with us every Friday, where we focus on simply pointing out the positive in our lives. Giving yourself a dose of R&R is the perfect way to feel refreshed before diving back into the grind!
Buy back your time.
Buy back some of your own time by outsourcing tasks that otherwise put a time constraint on relaxing. This could include dropping your mountain of laundry off at a wash and fold service, having groceries delivered straight to your door, or investing in a meal prep service that takes care of your meals for the week so you don’t have to.
