When you hear or read “Stressed, Depressed, but well dressed” it can sound so superficial or futile. But it’s not about that.
Everyone has bad days. And it sometimes affects the way we look. So, when I’m feeling stressed and depressed, then I look in the mirror and can’t recognize myself, it just makes everything worse.
That’s why I like to follow this “rule”. Even if I am stressed, depressed, bored, or anything, I do something for myself. Something that make me feel more good-looking, alluring, or just me.
For each person this “something” is different. Maybe you just need some lipstick. Maybe you’ll need a total makeover. I like to have my nails done and my eyebrows shaped. And, of course, a nice and flattering outfit. What’s your “something”?
Beyond the outside, it’s about not abandon ourselves. It’s about action. Don’t stay put feeling bad. Do it in all areas of your life. Surround yourself with positive things. And don’t give up on yourself.
Small attitudes reflect in our mood. And our mood affects all the other things that matters the most. So, take care of yourself!
