Visceral distractions
Immense temptation to go get ice cream, which I need like a hole in the head. Perhaps I should take the shinai down to the park and hope the tai ch'i class is there today, though Sunday isn't a usual day for them.

I've got a great set of ideas for things to do that result in fruition five and ten years from now; it's hard to keep that in a context of "What am I going to do *right now*?" Much easier to think about a Bischoff's banana split.

Are you finding other ways to reward yourself for good work done? The temptation might partly be about needing to give yourself a pat on the back.

needing to give yourself a pat on the back.

That'd get messy, with ice cream. 8^>

A good idea; I need to explore new ways to give myself praise -- mostly meaning I need to learn how to receive it and interpret it as such. Hints and/or ideas are most welcome.



A simple cup of tea or a hot shower can be a reward to yourself, as can a walk or half an hour with a book. The trick, I think, is in the thought that goes with it. Consciously saying 'I did good things today and now I can relax and enjoy this time' is probably all that's necessary.
