Examples of rewards and why it is important to reward yourself

It is important to reward yourself finishing or working on (everyday) tasks.

We all know that. First of all, a reward keeps you motivated while doing tasks and reaching your (business) goals.

Because it makes you feel good, and you are inclined to work better, faster and stronger. And if you don’t, who will?

Rewarding yourself when you complete tasks is important and serves as a reminder that hard work pays off.

Therefore treating yourself is important when strengthening or changing your habits.

And most of all: rewards bring fun and pleasure in doing your tasks.

The psychology behind rewarding yourself with something when doing tasks

When we give ourselves treats, we feel energized, cared for, and contented, which boosts our self-command — and self-command helps us maintain our healthy habits.

When we don’t get any treats, we begin to feel burned-out, depleted, and resentful.

Rewards are especially important when you have to do boring or routine tasks. So called low-priority tasks can be done faster and easier when using a rewarding mechanism for yourself.
