Five study rewards that don’t involve sugar

Posted on 11/09/2019 by

Creative ways to reward yourself for a hard week’s study, without just hitting the sugar!

Do you reward yourself for a hard week’s study?

If not, it could be a good time to start. Rewarding yourself for a job well done can be great motivation for getting up and doing it all over again the next week.

Typical reward ideas include chocolate, ice cream, and all things delicious. But if you’re also trying to get a good night’s sleep and encourage better eating habits, celebrating with sugar might not be your best bet.

Here are some fun study rewards that don’t involve sugar (or any other similar vices!).

1. Go to bed early

Some people might laugh at this one – but what used to be a punishment as a kid feels like a reward as a tired, hardworking adult! Is there anything more rewarding than hopping into bed early after a long day? Even if you’re not tired, you could curl up with a book or movie.

2. Go for a walk in nature

When was the last time you went for a leisurely stroll on the beach or through a beautiful stretch of scenery? Lace up your walking shoes and head to your favourite nature spot to relax and unwind.

3. Play tourist in your backyard

If you’re looking for a big reward, treat yourself to a tourist activity in your town or city. This could be something thrilling, like a jet boat road, or something relaxing, like a dip in a hot springs! Whatever you choose, it will tick two boxes – rewarding yourself for your efforts, and teaching you more about your local tourism industry. Win-win.

4. Give yourself a day off

Feeling on top of your work and ahead of the game? Give yourself a relaxing day off to recharge, day dream, watch TV, hang out with friends and family – whatever you feel like doing to refuel your tank. Not only will you love this reward, you’ll also come back to study the next day feeling refreshed and motivated.

5. Do something fun with friends

When you’re studying, your social life can take a backseat. As your next study reward, put your friends front and centre and do something fun together. Whether that’s a movie night, dinner out, or just a good old chat on the phone, schedule that social time to fill your cup.
