Reward Yourself The Right Way

Reward yourself the right way.

It's important to help keep yourself motivated when it comes to weight-loss and healthier living. Whether you are trying to lose weight or maintain your healthy lifestyle, it's important to reward yourself.

Rewards give you something to look forward to, a reason to keep going, and they give you positive reinforcement. It's important to choose the right rewards, those that will help you to move in the right direction, toward your goals. Instead of rewarding yourself with a banana split on the weekend for doing good throughout the week, try to come up with something that makes you feel good about yourself and your accomplishments that doesn't involve food.

Find the reward that works best for you, such as a little extra time golfing or swimming, a new DVD or video game that gets you up and moving, a new CD that makes you want to get up and dance, a new outfit to show off your new figure. Almost everyone could use a little extra "me time", which is a great reward also.

Since you know you better than anyone else, you are the best person to decide on your reward. It can be nearly anything, just not food, as long as it is something you enjoy and that motivates you to keep moving forward. So reward yourself, you worked hard and you deserve it!

Blessings for a Glorious Day!
