Being relaxed help calm the mind and the soul which is important to live a healthier life. Provide yourself with the sufficient amount of rest and reward that you need, because you have to enjoy even the little things for you to appreciate life.
Some people just want to push themselves to the limit, they would often times choose to go overtime in the office, and others would juggle a couple of work or even more just so they could reach their goals, just so they could get the promotion, just so they could become a better provider to their family, and/or just so they could prove themselves. While I really do admire these kind of people, but during that process of hard work, they do not realize that it has slowly been taking a toll at their body both physically and mentally.
How can I?
If you are one of them, then it will really be a big help to yourself if you could avoid that, and you can! Whenever a person feels tired and stressed out of all the things happening around him, it helps if he rewards himself even just a little. This is because it motivates the person to do better on their work because they know that after that struggle, they have something that they could look forward to. The reward becomes the light at the end of the tunnel.
What should I reward myself?
Rewards are relative, it all depends as to what the person enjoys the most! If you believe that you need to get yourself pampered, then get a massage thai that will ease out all the tensions from your muscles. If you think eating that whole box of pizza will be worth it, then dive right in. When it comes to rewards, it does not matter how petty or how big it is, what matters is how much you are able to enjoy life, and how much you are giving yourself the break you need.
Common problems encountered
Majority of these hard workers would be sitting behind their office desk for 8 hours a day or more and 5 times a week, sometimes they would even bring their work at home. These people would often feel a pain in their back, in the neck, their joints, or all at the same time. Let your body heal, and having a remedial massage can do that. If you are already experiencing some pain, have yourself checked. It is important that you take good care of your body rather than beating yourself at work to earn the extra money.Other than physical pain, they would be experiencing mental exhaustion which makes it become difficult to do the work. Through rewards, you are able to breathe, compose yourself, and become more focused on your goal.
We only have one life to live, so enjoy even the little and simplest things in life. Give yourself a day off, a day filled with happiness, relaxation, and satisfaction because you deserve it.
