9. Reward for Goal Accomplishment
You finally lost those last ten pounds or you finished that home improvement project that has been hanging over your head forever. Congratulations! Allow yourself a moderate amount of self pampering as a reward.
You can also use pampering as an incentive while you are pursuing long-term goals, such as allowing yourself to watch an episode of your favorite TV show after you’ve finished researching a report, and having a drink with a friend when you put a final wrap on the report.
