    how do you reward yourselves?

    I'm done grading papers, and I've caught up here on the forum...now I'm going to reward myself by reading a book.

    How do you all "reward" yourselves?

    A small Dairy Queen ice cream cone dipped in chocolate and nuts works for me. ;)

    Laying in bed, with my feet propped up, with a magazine or book.

    Eating a slice of pizza.

    If I have a few hours, binge-watching several episodes of a television drama.

    I don't work for rewards. I had to be released from the feeling of "I don't deserve to do abc, because there are so many things I should be doing". I realize there are some things that have to be done, but if I decide to let something non essential go in order to do something pleasant or eat something special, I am free to do so.

    Usually with something to eat - No surprise there, right?

    Either some Haagen-Dazs or some type of Pastry (pie, cake, cookie).

    I could in no way just let things totally go, however I can pick and choose because we are retired and our dd has a family of her own. I hope I didn't sound snarky about not working for rewards, I know you guys are referring speaking more about getting some time after being busy.

    The drawback of being nice to myself whenever I want is to not become habitually self indulgent.
