Look Good, Feel Good!
We’ve all heard the coined phrase “look good, feel good”. Yes, it’s cliché, but TRUE! When we look after ourselves and take care of our appearance, like magic, we generally tend to feel better! Splashing a little water on our faces, brushing our teeth, and combing our hair will start the day with a much more productive and successful morning. Looking good and taking care of ourselves not only gives us more self-confidence but also makes us feel like US!
Hygiene, hygiene, hygiene!
Personal hygiene is super important because it involves keeping all parts of the external body clean and healthy. It is important for maintaining both physical and mental health as well as benefits our social life. A great way to keep up with good personal hygiene is to create a routine for yourself and stick to it. Plan out your morning and night hygiene routine to ensure you’re on the right track. With daily practice, a new habit can become a regular part of life. Choose one area to focus on and practice until it becomes second nature. Setting reminders, making a checklist, or rewarding yourself can also help to improve your hygiene routine.
Let’s get dolled up!
We all have that one outfit that sits in our closet and only comes out for very special occasions, why not wear it ‘just because’. You look great in it AND it makes you feel good, what’s stopping you! Even just sitting up, standing up straight and tall, and putting on something we love that makes us feel good – that’s going to influence our brains. We all deserve to look and feel fantastic. When’s the last time you bought a new dress or dress shirt… or whatever you feel most comfortable in? Treat yourself every once in a while and add to your closet collection.
