Hope you are having a great day. Today is Day 13 of the 31 Days To A Happier You Challenge. Yesterday we talked about trying new things. Today we are going to shift our focus a bit. We are going to look to our outside and do something for our appearance to give a confidence boost.
I know that focusing on the outside is not good for long term happiness. But if you’re like me, you get into a rut. You wear the same leggings and cardigan everyday, hair in a permanent messy bun…. let’s just say it can start to take a toll on your self-esteem.
Today you are going to do something that makes you feel good about how you look. Maybe you’ll paint your nails a fun color. Or replicate Serena’s White Party hair-do for your date night. Get out a magazine or hop onto Pinterest and find something fun to do.
Now that you’ve done your hair or your nails. Maybe you put on that outfit that makes you feel like $100. Now go somewhere. Go to the store and get some milk. Do some window shopping at the mall. It doesn’t matter where but go strut your stuff.
The point of this isn’t to get validation from anyone. It’s to put a bit of pep into your step. It is for you to feel good about you. Plus after one episode of putting your best foot forward, you might find yourself reaching for your favorite jeans and lipstick more often. If it makes you feel awesome, there is nothing wrong with that!
So you have your to-do for Day 13. Find a fun and easy way to alter your outward appearance so you look good and feel good. Bonus points: Take a selfie and post it on Instagram. Use #a_happier_you or tag me @holly_cuperus
