Reward Yourself

CONCEPT: Self Esteem



Participants complete a worksheet to help them develop ideas for how they can support and nurture themselves.



After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • describe "positive self-talk"
  • change a negative thought into a positive idea
  • list three ways they can reward themselves (positive self-talk, giving themselves a compliment, doing something they enjoy)



Distribute the worksheet "Rewarding Yourself".

Explain: "It is important for people to develop ways to support and nurture themselves. This is useful when you're facing a tough job and need a pick-me-up and when you've done something spectacular and need a reward. Today we're going to think about ways we can support and reward ourselves."

Work through the worksheet together, in sections:

  1. Discuss the section first. The sections include: Positive Self-Talk, Compliments, Having Fun.
  2. Give participants time to complete the questions in that section.
  3. Discuss their responses to the questions.
  4. Move on to the next section.





Save this worksheet and look at it periodically during the year to remind yourself of the different ways you can support and reward yourself.
