Incentives work well for not only preschool classrooms but for the bigger kids at heart, as well. An old fashioned reward system can keep you moving, keep you eating well, and keep you focused on your plan. One key factor to staying motivated is consistency because if you slack off on whatever system you set up then your motivation will slow to a crawl. If we intensely focus on our worries we cannot keep our focus on our goals.
Twelve Non-Food Rewards to Keep You Motivated:
- Clothing/ Shoe shopping
- Massage (Yes, please!)
- Healthy cooking class
- Girl’s night out! (Always motivating!)
- Kitchen gadget
- Workout gadget (bic bands, sports bra, socks,)
- New fragrance or candles
- Magazine subscription
- **Bonus** Tip jar
**Bonus** The tip jar concept is easy to start. You simply place a monetary value on a workout and pay yourself each time you do said workout. You can add water consumption, healthy eating choices, and weight you have lost to the scheme and you will have a healthy little bonus to spend on yourself in a short period of time!
