Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!
Today, let’s get real. There are times when we all feel down and out. Hopefully, this is just a temporary feeling (if it lasts longer than 2 weeks, though, please seek out a professional counselor. They can help you!). There are a few small things we can do on days like these to help ourselves feel just a little better and put some pep back in our step.
#1: Throw on some high heels
High heels have power. I’m not sure if it’s the way we carry ourselves when we wear them or what, but I challenge you not to feel fabulous in high heels. Have you heard Kelly Pickler’s song ‘Red High Heels’? Check it out, throw on some heels, and go out and get it, girl!
#2: Layer on the lipstick
Lipstick basically has the same effect as high heels. Throw on some red lipstick (or whatever your signature color might be) and you can take on the world.
#3: Paint your nails
I swear by this one. Even if I paint my nails a nude color, I still feel better than when they’re not painted at all. I think it’s a matter of feeling more put together when my nails look nice. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to be able to look down at my hands and have them look pretty. Yup, painted nails give me all the fabulous feelings!
#4: Pull out the accessories
Nothing can boost your mood like your favorite necklace or earrings or bracelets or ring or scarf or purse or whatever your choice accessories are. So layer on those jewels and take on the day!
#5: Listen to music
Ah, sweet sweet music. Nothing boosts my mood like putting on some tunes. Sometimes it takes a few songs to figure out what I want to listen to, but once I do, I’m pumped!
These things might seem vain or selfish, but I would argue they’re actually not. Self care is a thing that should not be taken lightly. If you don’t feel good and confident about yourself, you can’t expect to be able to care for others. I’m not saying we take a spa day once a week and check-out from the world (every now and then that might be a good idea, though). I’m just saying take a few minutes to do something that makes you feel happy. Once your battery is recharged, then you are better equipped to take care of your loved ones.
I would love to hear you’re thoughts! Leave a comment and let us know your tips for dealing with the occasional blues.
