How I did it: Doing something nice for myself is a bit counter-intuitive, in that while I think I deserve it, I also tend to put it last on the priority list.
Changing that is a matter of focus and approach. First, I thought about all the large and small things that I like; then, I thought about ways to work them into my day to day life. For example, I like to read - so I put a good lamp next to a comfortable chair, and made a point of granting myself at least two hours a week to simply sit and enjoy a book.
I've been fairly consistent for the past 3 months, so I am marking this "done". Read how I did it… 3 years ago
