When You Look Good…

…you feel good!

We all have those days when we feel tired or just plain crummy.  Well, then…the best way to start those days is to make sure you look good.  Not just good.  Good.

When you roll out of bed, squeeze yourself into pants that are a wee bit snug, and throw on an ill-fitting or unflattering sweater you’re pretty much setting yourself up for a bad day.  You’ll cringe anytime you look in the mirror, be reminded of those five extra pounds every time your waistband digs into your belly, and the entire day will feel pretty uncomfortable.  And you’ll probably spend your whole day wishing you could crawl under your desk and take a nap.

Those extra 15 minutes of sleep won’t make you feel refreshed anyway, so turn off the snooze and spend that time starting your day off on the right foot.

And I don’t mean it in the sense of vanity, but rather of confidence.  When you look good, you feel good.  And when you feel good, you have confidence.  And there’s some sort of magical power in confidence that breeds energy.

When I take the extra few minutes I look better, I feel better, and I take better care of myself.  And you know what else?  When I have the energy & confidence, I treat others better, too.  See?  It really is magic.

Give it a try.  On a day when you feel like wearing your sweats to work, do yourself up a little.  You’ll be glad you did.  And your husband probably won’t mind, either!  😉

Today’s post is linked to “Works For Me Wednesdays,” tips to make your family’s life easier.  WFMW is hosted by Kristen at We Are THAT Family.

  1. Great tip! It also doesn’t hurt to have something new (to me) hanging up in my closet for those days that I need an extra dose of self-confidence. If I’m going to be in a group of strangers or speaking to a group, I need to look nice. I stay on the lookout for great-fitting clothing at resale shops.

  2. I completely agree. Styling my hair, adding some lip gloss or lipstick, even if I just at home caring for my son all day makes a world of difference. Great tip!
