Reward Yourself

Success is measured in many ways. Maybe it’s how your clothes fit, the way you feel, or what the scale says. However you choose to recognize your achievements ,you deserve a little reward from time to time — and it doesn’t have to mean taking a diet detour. Here are five guiltless ways to reward yourself for your accomplishments.

1. Treat yourself …
to a day at the salon or spa. A pedicure, facial, or massage can really keep your spirits high. Or better yet, treat yourself to a high-end haircut or new color to accentuate your newfound confidence.

2. Hit the stores …
and purchase something you’ve been eyeing, like an outfit, a new book, or a piece of jewelry. Or invest in something that will help you reach your goals, such as walking sneakers, workout apparel, or even a gym membership.

3. Have a “night (or day) out”…
that doesn’t revolve around dinner. Instead, after a healthy meal at home, go out to a movie or play. Another idea is to spend a day doing something active: Sign up for tennis lessons, try rock climbing, walk around a museum, or rent a bike and explore a new neighborhood.

4. Buy yourself …
some fresh-cut flowers to decorate your home or office. They’ll brighten up your day and serve as a reminder of your success.

5. Take a bubble bath …
and enjoy some quiet “me” time to help you focus on your success and stay on track.
