Its not just an old cliche, looking good can actually improve your mood and make you healthier…
You’d be surprised how a hot shower, a nice outfit, and a full face of makeup can make you feel a hundred times better when you’re under the weather. A few months ago, I caught the flu and was feeling down for what felt like an eternity. I’d finally had enough and decided to get out of bed to pamper myself with lashes, make up and a brand new outfit. It was the exact medicine I needed; my energy, confidence, and more importantly my health went up that day!
One organization dedicated to this philosophy is Look Good, Feel Better. Since 1989 they have worked with people who are battling cancer to encourage and inspire them. With the help of thousands of volunteers, they organize makeovers, workshops, and more to support women.
When I’m feeling down, it’s so tempting to give in to the cozy comfort of a pair of sweats, a Netflix series I haven’t binged yet, and some snacks I’ll have no guilt indulging in. But with so many responsibilities in a day, I usually don’t get my fill of relaxation. Sometimes a little makeover is exactly what it takes to get me feeling back to normal.
