As busy female professionals, we aim to improve, grow and become better in all aspects of life. However, we are often so busy crushing our professional goals that we forget to reward ourselves now and again. Rather than giving yourself the proverbial pat on the back, why not combine your busy lifestyle with a reward that offers relaxation, improved quality of life, and a much-needed break? Here are some ideas of things you can reward yourself with:
Meditative and relaxing activities. Stress is a common, everyday feeling, especially for a professional, and it’s important to find ways to reduce that stress and enjoy life amidst the periodic chaos we experience. Consider some of these items:
Time-saving, healthy food choices. That all sounds fantastic, but when you’re so busy with work and potentially taking care of a family as well, it’s difficult to make the best food choices. You’re hungry and you find something to eat, but it’s not always the best option out there. There are so many fast food restaurants and other unhealthy, quick options available that it’s easy to make all of the wrong choices - especially when you’re hungry. Sure, there are some things you can have at home that are healthy, and maybe you’re good about making dinner each night and eating what you should, but what about during the workday?
Lunch time is prime time to make food mistakes. What about adding a healthy food delivery service to your wish list? Most cities have these services available now, and they’re generally not more expensive than grabbing something at a restaurant - and sometimes, they’re even cheaper. They offer different diet accommodation options including gluten-free, plant-based, and fitness-fueling choices. You can sign up for automatic delivery, pick your ideal menu, and have meals brought right to your door.
There are a lot of things we can do to improve our lives and better ourselves. Adding some of these things to your list of rewards or splurges can make accomplishing your professional and personal goals that much more fun. It’s really a win-win situation.
