Celebrate Your Wins, Big and Small

Sharing is caring!

No matter how high you rise, how much you accomplish, or how much money you make, it’s important to celebrate your wins, both big and small. You can do this by taking a few minutes to acknowledge what you’ve done right and the progress you’ve made.

Reasons Why We Don’t Celebrate Our Wins

When we’re all focused on achieving our next big goal or conquering that next big milestone, it can be easy to forget about celebrating our smaller victories along the way.

But whether you’ve made it through a hard week at work or crossed off another thing from your to-do list, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate your wins—big and small.

Why Celebrating Your Wins Is Important

First and foremost, realize that you are important. You are a great person who has many friends and family members who love you very much.

Although it may not seem important at first glance, celebrating your wins—big or small—is an essential part of reaching any goal. Whether you’re managing a project or just trying to keep yourself motivated throughout an average workday, acknowledging accomplishments helps you feel good about what you’ve done so far.

It’s easy to get lost in daily routines, keeping your eye on that long-term vision without actually stopping to enjoy your successes along the way.

  • Celebrating your wins will help maintain your motivation and keep things in perspective so that you’re always pushing yourself to be better than you were yesterday. By celebrating all of your successes, big and small, it will be easier to tackle the bigger challenges that inevitably lie ahead!

  • They also help break up the monotony of day-to-day life and give us something to look forward to in between those bigger accomplishments.

  • Acknowledging how far we’ve come will help us see what lies ahead, making success seem more tangible in the process. And

  • sometimes celebrating is just plain fun!

How To Find Time To Celebrate When You Have A Full Life

When you’re juggling a career, family, social life, and more—often with limited time to spare—it can be hard to find time to celebrate your wins.

But often, it’s only when we stop to smell the roses that we realize how far we’ve come. Here are some tips for finding time to celebrate:

1. Make A Date Night With Yourself!

We know this is easier said than done. Put it on your calendar and make it happen. A recent study found that just one hour of quality time each week improved well-being by 12%.

2. Pick A Day of The Week To Do Something Fun On Your Own.

Leave work at work and enjoy dinner or a movie or go for a walk.

3. Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

Stop comparing your journey to someone else’s—celebrate your successes by acknowledging what you have accomplished so far.

4. Take Care of Yourself in Ways Big and Small.

Pamper yourself with five minutes alone every morning before starting the day or turn off screens an hour before bedtime to reduce blue light exposure which could interfere with sleep patterns.

Treat yourself to breakfast in bed or wear your favorite perfume.

Did you shave a few seconds off your 5K PR? Did you complete a major project at work before the deadline? Did you pick up an extra shift at your day job? Did you just nail your first burpee in two years? Keep a list of all these wins(big or small)on the fridge, or take pictures every time you accomplish something. Once you’ve been able to create a long list, see how many times it took for one win to lead to another win. It might be surprising!

I hope everyone has some sort of victory celebration planned for this upcoming summer season or any time of the year.

Remember that you deserve happiness!
