Stop rewarding yourself with food—you’re not a dog. Author unknown (It could be Mershon’s small voice inside her head)
I recently read a paragraph in The Writer magazine that I believe applies to life in general. See if it speaks to you.
Anica Mrose Rissi, author of more than a dozen books, wrote, “Writing is a long game. As you take small steps toward larger goals, it’s important to notice, feel proud of, and celebrate minor triumphs and achievements. Pause to savor your accomplishments. Admire your best sentences. Those small boosts will fuel you along the way.”
Affirmation: Taking regular reward breaks fuel my life.
Coaching questions: What will you celebrate today? What will taking frequent reward breaks mean to the quality of your life? I will admire my best _______.
