Do you know those days when you don’t feel like doing anything? You feel like you have no energy even if you did want to do something…Well those are the days when you do need to get ready.
I think it’s really important on those days specifically to get ready. Like full on ready, where you take a shower and wash your hair and do your make up and find something cute to wear that you feel comfortable and confident in.
I don’t know what it is but usually after you get ready and you look at yourself and you see that you’re put together you usually get a little jolt of energy.
Today it was a little hard for me to remember that, but then I did remember that usually when I feel the worst and I get ready… it changes the way I feel.
So even though I felt like I had no energy to do anything today and had planned on being lazy today where I would just lay in bed and binge watch Modern Family all day… I decided to take a shower, get ready and put something comfortable on that I feel confident in, and then I did my make up.
I even ended up going out. No, not anywhere fancy unless you think Lowes is fancy…but my brother wanted to go to Lowes and asked me if I wanted to go with him. Surprisingly, I said yes.
For someone who usually doesn’t like to go anywhere most of the time (most of the time I feel socially anxious) after I got ready I told him “Sure”.
I figured maybe God is providing me with an opportunity to fight my social anxiety a bit today.
I’m really glad I went too because when you’re in the house for too long and you go out even for a bit, you just feel good. Kind of like a reset button for your mood.
So, if you’re having one of those days where you don’t feel like doing anything…trust me and try these:
- get in the shower (optional: shave your legs)
- find a nice cute outfit even if you’re not planning on going out and put it on
- do your make up and get dolled up
- take a few selfies
You will feel much better and most likely even get a little boost of energy or motivation to do something productive.
In the case that you don’t feel any of those and still don’t plan on doing anything different, at least now you can look & feel sexy while binge watching whatever you are going to watch.
How often do you have these moments and how do you react to them?
