What do you do to reward yourself when you do something well?
Bonus: What do you do for others?

I buy an expensive bottle of beer that I haven’t done a tasting of, and rate it.When I lived in Stockton, I used to treat myself with the coffee crunch cake from Podestos Market. And I was much skinnier back then, so perhaps I was less productive.. or perhaps I’m just so productive here that beer is becoming detrimental? Hmmmm well, that’s just preposterous.For other folks (big surprise) I buy them a beer when I see them at the pub, or if they don’t drink beer, I send a card.Oh, for REALLY hard-earned rewards, I gift myself with antiquarian books which I regularly spy on Ebay and Alibris.

when i reward myself for actions of behavior, it typically is somewhere along the lines of a very nice dinner with lots of wine,followed by a very nice time at the bar with lots of whiskey followed by a stumbling walk home where i usually puke up the several hundred dollars i spent that night. the next day i take myself to a sauna/hot-tub (which some may call the soak and poke) and try not to have a heart attack from the heat.
the above is also the same routine i do when i am punishing myself as well as my daily routine.
for the bonus! typically, when people are celebrating their own personal victories, they have their own agenda. i just go along for the ride and help with the bill if they let me.

for me: a big bowl of ice cream and a handful of Lactaid pills.
for others: usually handmade things (decoupaged boxes, love notes written on pretty paper, pipe-cleaner tiaras, etc, etc…)

I usually reward myself by feeling better than everyone else for having accomplished anything at all (even though I usually do far less than most people).
When it’s someone else, I usually reward them with bitterness and resentment for having highlighted my failures by accomplishing something.
