Enjoying is small things is actually a key to living a satisfying and fulfilling life. However, it seems that lifestyle became too hectic in the last few years, so it is practically impossible to stay motivated and focused on your goals. This is exactly why you have to find ways to reward yourself on a daily basis. Here are five amazing way to do that.
It really doesn’t matter what is your location of choice. You can choose a romantic weekend getaway together with your boyfriend, or if you prefer travelling incognito – a destination you have never been to before will be perfect. It doesn’t have to be an expensive trip – not at all! Camping by the nearest river will definitely do the trick, as well as hiking on the hill outside of town. Of course, a fabulous, holiday destination once a year is an absolute must! New York, Paris or London – who cares? As long as you have fun, it is not that important!
Have a Movie Night
Having a movie night at your home has multiple advantages. First of all, you don’t even have to take your PJs off. Second of all – you can eat as much as you want, and no one will actually see you. Anything can be taken into consideration – popcorn, tortilla chips together with some delish dips, pizza, donuts, ice cream… Really, you can go crazy and munch anything you want. You deserve it! Just curl up in your cozy blanket with bae and play a movie that will put you in a good mood. (And don’t forget a bottle of your favorite wine.)
Dine at a Fancy Restaurant
Invite your best friend to an ultimate fabulous experience at a most exclusive restaurant in your city. Make a reservation for two, put on that elegant dress you are keeping for special occasions and rock that fancy outfit with a pair of gorgeous stilettos. Have a glass of red wine (or a Cosmopolitan, why not?), the most amazing tagliatelle tartufo and to-die-for crème soufflé. These will certainly make you feel like a diva. Trust me, you definitely won’t regret it!
Shop Until You Drop
All the girls in the world would agree that shopping is absolutely the best way to reward yourself after a long week at work. Invite your gals and head into the malls, consignment stores and vintage shops. I believe that shopping is your cardio, so it won’t be very tiring to spend a whole day wandering through stores, craving for the latest IT pieces. Every shopaholic knows that shopping out of season is a good way to go, so why don’t you look for a latest swimwear sale and buy a perfect bikini for the next season? You won’t have to think about that when summer comes, and not to mention that you’ll save loads of money!
Be Completely Unproductive
Another way of rewarding yourself for weeks of hard work and stress is being completely unproductive for a whole day. There is no better way to make yourself feel refreshed and relaxed. Just put fresh sheets on your bed, make sure that your room is dark enough, and dive into your favorite blankets and fluffy pillows. Skipping a beauty sleep is wrong at so many levels, so you will definitely feel like a queen after a few hours spent in your bed.
As you can see, small things are indeed the ones which keep you happy and motivated. That is very important nowadays, because it seems that everything has lost its purpose. This is exactly why you should remind yourself every day how awesome you are, and you’ll do that in the best possible way by rewarding yourself for everything you achieve.
