One of the things many Type-A personalities don’t do is celebrate. I am the first to admit that I don’t celebrate much of anything, let alone my work successes. And yet I know how important celebration is to our well-being. Celebration provides us individual and communal ways of affirming our worth.
Here are some ideas to kickstart your celebrations, big and small.
When you finish each one of your “three most important” list, say “DONE!” with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Perhaps when you finish all three, throw in a Tiger Woods fist pump if you’re feeling energetic.
Land a big client? Celebrate by gathering with a couple friends and/or family and do something fun.
Be intentional about celebrating your birthday or anniversary. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, but make it meaningful.
Allow yourself to feel joy at the things you accomplished today. Know that you make a difference in the world!
We’d love to hear how you celebrate! Send us an email with your favorite ways to celebrate work and life.
