How does everyone reward themselves after completing a task? For me, if I feel that I have done enough to reward myself, I usually treat myself to some Taco Bell. It may not sound like much but to me I absolutely love it and since I space it out so much it's a nice treat when I have had a solid few weeks of working out and eating clean.
Taco Bell is not the only thing I will treat myself to. When I have a hard assignment for school that is taking up all my time. I will sit down and try to get it all done and once I finish it I will go hiking that following weekend to reward myself for completing the task.
I plan on doing a lot of hiking at the end of this semester!!
I think it is important to reward yourself for everything you have done. If it's small tasks or big tasks as long as you have given it your all a reward is important to keep you motivated to complete future tasks.
