Question: Who enjoys and values their money more: those who won the lottery or those who earned it?
Sure, the person who won the lottery will enjoy their money, but I bet the person who earned their money appreciates and values it more.
When we earn something, it tastes and feels much sweeter. There is no question. We enjoy it more. And this doesn't just apply to money. It also applies to relationships, beauty, and food.
For most of us, Thanksgiving will be here soon. Therefore, why don't we earn that meal so it feels and tastes even better? But how? Conditional rewards, meaning, if I do X, then I get to do Y.
If we do what we set out to do and accomplish our tasks for the day/week, it takes away the guilt we might feel from eating our favorite food or watching TV, or whatever it might be. Why? Because there aren't all those things we know we should be doing hanging over our head.

Either way, give thanks and have a happy one!
