How to Reward Yourself Without Food

4 Ways to Reward Yourself Without Food

If you've grown accustomed to celebrating healthy accomplishments with food, it's time to change your tune. Instead of heading to a boozy happy hour or booking a reservation at yet another restaurant, slow down, think things through, and consider one of these healthier — and just as enjoyable — rewards.

Shop for new clothes: Show off your hard work with new duds you've been coveting. If you are in need of a dress for a special occasion, this is the perfect time to shop. Otherwise buy some new fitness gear to help your new habits stick.

Book a spa treatment: A massage or facial is quite the luxury, but even something as simple as a quick hair blowout or manicure can make you feel equally pampered and rewarded.

Order event tickets: Look online to see if any bands you love are coming to town. If music isn't your thing, buy seats to a big sports game or play rolling through town. When you have something to look forward to, you'll want to be looking and feeling your best.

Send yourself flowers: Instead of sinking your teeth into a cupcake, call your favorite florist or stroll through a farmers market to pick out a big bouquet of flowers. Every time you look at the arrangement, you'll be reminded of all the hard work they represent.
