A week or so ago, my friend Stephen posted on Facebook, “Don’t reward yourself with food, Stephen. What are you, a dog?”
I laughed, but it was as much from shock as amusement. I tend to reward myself with food, and while it has yet to become a problem, I have to admit I’d never thought of it that way. I’ve been thinking on and off about way to reward myself that don’t involve food, and it’s harder than I thought. For the most part, my rewards involve food or spending money. Or both. Again, it’s not a problem, but for some people, it could be. Health and financial difficulties could rule out just about every reward I have. It’s a subject that bears more thought, and I’m open to suggestions.
