    Hi...

    I am looking for ideas for tiny and small rewards, that are nothing to do with food, but which I could give myself either daily or bi~weekly.

    I am trying to follow Martha Beck's 4 Day Win ~ each day for four days if you do something you get a reward and after four days you get a bigger one. So I'm looking for ideas..... lots of ideas!

    I'm so used to just giving myself greif and a kick up the butttttt (its a large one!) and have no idea of how to be nice to me.

    All ideas more than welcomed.

    I give myself a manicure twice a week, and I use bath bombs and bubble bars from lush at bathtime. Also i've bought Jo Malone perfune and i use it every day, rather than saving it for 'best'.

    After I had my first son, my health visitor made me write a list of treats to have. I have since bought a book called "It's the little things" by Amy Collins which has lots of ideas for treats.

    Here are some ideas for you:

    Free/ v cheap treats -

    A foot soak

    A face mask

    Paint your nails

    Watch 30 mins of your fave guilty pleasure TV programme

    Ask a good friend or partner to give you a back rub

    Do 30 mins of your fave hobby (knitting, sewing etc) - make an appointment with yourself so you make sure you will do it!

    Light a scented candle. Spend an hour or so in candlelight. Listen to radio or read.

    Slather your feet in foot lotion and put on a pair of socks before bed.

    Buy yourself some flowers (pick your own in season)

    A skinny fancy coffee at Costa/ Starbucks etc etc

    Bath with floating candles

    Write a letter to someone, choose nice cards or paper.

    Watch a fave comedy programme

    Go for a walk and appreciate the weather (sun, rain, wind or snow)

    Buy yourself a lovely pen or keyring (Accessorize have nice ones)

    Phone a friend for a chat

    Buy some lovely and saucy new knickers!

    Eat a meal picnic style. Or using the best crockery and glass, just for you!

    Hope that helps!

    I'm sad and love a sticker!! Also little pressies I would buy myself are....

    A bargain book
    Nail polish
    Bath bomb
    Soap
    Hand cream
    I tunes song
    Notebook
    Nice pen
    Book Mark

    It would have to be cheap if it was every 4 days. I would probably put £2 in a jar every 4 days and treat myself at the end of the month and maybe a sticker every 4 days :)

    Books are on the list as my main rewards - that and new trainers. I love to read. Going to get to the stage where I love to workout just as much as I do read - well thats the goal anyway.
