Whether you reach a specific milestone or a midpoint in a project, it doesn’t matter, you can stop and celebrate where you are and how far you’ve come. Find appreciation for what you’ve done to date.

The Celebration can be as little or as big as you want it. Just pausing for a few seconds to breathe and reflect with pride on your progress is a celebration, as is taking a walk while listening to a favorite song and eating some ice cream. If you are in a group or part of a team, you can incorporate them in the celebration, too, or share your wins with close friends or loved ones.

Spending a few minutes before you go to bed each night thinking about your successes from the day can be particularly useful to reduce stress and build a sense of self- worth.
