I intentionally schedule a small reward into the end of each day. It gives me something to look forward to and makes me feel good.
Once I have finished my work, chores, walked the dog for the last time, tended to my kids, finished dishes and laundry, and planned out my next day, I get to indulge myself.
For me, daily rewards are simple, but well thought out. I care enough about myself to plan something nice.
I like to visit my local library for some good reads to keep on my nightstand. Reading is one of my greatest pleasures, and I love the feeling of a restful sleep coming on while I enjoy my book.
Fresh sheets spritzed with aromatherapy linen spray or a temple rub with essential oils are also special treats I give myself from time to time. I love floral smells, so I also like to add Rose Oil to the light bulb diffuser ring on my nightstand. What a glorious way to drift off…
During times of stress, I take care to do a little extra. I might schedule a nice foot rub or warm shower before I get to my reading. This me also means I will have to take a quick run to the store for some bath oil or foot cream. The act of buying myself a small gift such as this makes my daily reward even more special. I truly can’t wait to go to bed at night because I love how I treat myself!
I encourage you to explore simple things that you enjoy and schedule daily rewards for yourself at the end of a long day.
What do you like to do to wind down after a long day?
I wish you peace,
