37 Things to Treat Yourself to After a Long Week | 22 Words
Amazon

I'm a big believer in rewards. They work on my kids, they work on my dog, and they most certainly work on me. I'll give you an example. After a few months of slothful living, I've recommitted to eating healthier and getting more exercise. For motivation, I promised myself a prize after one month of consistent workouts: this fruit infuser water bottle. I think it will encourage me to drink more water, which circles back to help with my original goal. Pretty smart, right?

I don't want to wait a whole month to reward myself, though. It's been a tough week at work, so I'm also shopping for more immediate pleasures I can enjoy this weekend, like something delicious or a new skincare product that will make me look more refreshed. I was enjoying my shopping so much that I ended up putting together an entire list of things to treat yourself to after a long week. There's something here for everyone, and I bet you'll find at least one thing that will be the perfect gift to yourself!
