How do you reward you... - page 2

What do you do that is just for you... I was walking down a hall with a nurse that I've worked with off and on for a few years and she told me, "Did you get called in yesterday? I called in, I... Read More

    I have massively pedestrian taste, so a trip to any consumer store will make it happen for me. When I stay on the stairmaster, for 25:00, on the rollercoaster mode, set on level 7, and stay on the whole time without using my arms to hold on, my heart gives a reward. Taking the bike to school is a reward, because it's all down hill coming home.
    I like to come here - it's a serious release for me. I also love the feeling a buying a new book. I buy them faster than I can read them.

    A good work out can be rewarding too, but I've admittedly gotten out of practice lately.

    I just rewarded my taste buds with a big ol' fresh hot out of the oven Cinnabon from the food court in our shopping mall on base. Mmmmmmmmmm....good! Dee-li-cious to the last drop! Now, the calories might not look real good on me, but that was a heck of a reward to enjoy for the moment! Excuse me pleez, I think I hear my arteries coughing... :chuckle

    Funny, I should too! Or at least get a part time job there. Employees get a 30% discount including sale items!!!

    Why do we need to reward ourselves for doing a job we are getting paid for?

    Are you for real? You don't have any little indulgences that make you feel special? I would find that very hard to believe. That would make you almost drone-like. "Go to work, get paid, go to work, get paid..."

    You don't need a pat on the back or some other gesture to make yourself feel good every once and awhile? I would argue that is a basic need of every single human being on this Earth.

    Aaahhh.....Bath & Body Works...chocolate...a bath...a good book... a message.....GETTING LAID....

    The perfect treats for a Woman, not just an overworked, underpaid Nurse, but for any Woman.

    If someone does not think we should reward ourselves, that someone must live in Disneyland and not have any stresssss :-)

    I'm a B&B nut...they know me by name and FAV products! ( They probably know my credit card number by heart, too.)
    I also go fabric shopping!
    This coming Nov is a real treat...going on a Caribbean Cruise with my kids, husband, patients, demands...just my mom and ancient Mayan ruins!

    My reward is a few hours to craft/fabric shop. Chocolate is a nice reward, but today it has to be sugar-free jello, the shorts are getting a bit too tight. My best reward is getting to hold my baby boy so close that he feels as secure as he possibly can.
