In this blogpost, you're given the reasons why you should have a rewards program on Henry Jones's healing and wellness Challenges (and in life). The reasons are irrefutable. If you like to feel the inner joy that bubbles up inside of you when you receive a reward, keep reading…

Hello there, champion of true wellness...

We’ve got news for you: It’s crucial to reward yourself for achieving your goals on a healing or wellness journey. Rewards give you something for which to aim. They motivate you to excel. If you really want the reward, you’ll strive to achieve it. Interestingly, being rewarded is often more valued than the reward itself. Children will run as fast as they can to win a race for a lollipop. It’s not the lollipop that drives them, but the chance to be rewarded for an accomplishment that’s the real motivator.

The nice thing about rewards is that they are always attached to an accomplishment. That’s the beauty of them. They signify a triumph. You want to punctuate your healing or wellness journey with moments of triumph.

A reward also pegs your accomplishments. You’ll remember achieving your goal by the reward you receive. That's why your rewards for achieving your milestones should be meaningful to you. No, they don’t have to be expensive, luxury items! Rewards can be small, inexpensive items that matter to you. For instance, they can be experiences that bring you pleasure, but cost nothing.

Here's some ideas for you...

The important thing is that you feel rewarded having received them, or experienced them. 

Get the Workbooks:

If you’ve already got the Workbook for your upcoming Challenge, then you’ll know it includes a Rewards Program so that you can plan to treat yourself. If you don’t have the Workbook yet, get it soon. It's an essential tool for you to use on the Challenge. 

You need to write down the goals you'd like to achieve in four focus areas in your life – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Next, develop a plan to reward yourself for achieving these goals. You really should identify fun ways to incentivize yourself to stay on your healing or wellness journey long after you complete the Challenge. Try it! You won’t regret it! 

We don’t mean to harp on about the Challenge Workbooks, but they includes a section for goal setting.
