Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Remember to pamper yourself

Tuesday, May 19, 2009 by Emily Boyd

Who said tasks can't be fun? RTM user burdejanie posted this fantastic tip on the Tips & Tricks forum:

Bob remembers to indulge in appropriately-themed icecream

One element that I've been using that others might be interested in adding is adding "pamper me" updates. I've created a list of things I'd like to do more of in my life – smell the flowers, give myself a pedicure, get an ice cream cone, etc. Then I've set various recurring due dates – monthly, every 3 months, etc. Even though I know the list is there, they pop up on my to do list and it's a pleasant surprise and a nice reminder to take care of myself amidst all of the daily tasks.

Take some time today to take care of you!
