Bad Days

On days that I don't feel like I look good at all I get really dressed up. I'll take special care to do my hair and make up, wear a nice outfit and heels to work. This always makes me feel better plus people usually comment which boosts my self esteem a little too.

Make the bed every morning.

This might sound silly, but I know some people out there don't make their bed in the morning. It only takes a minute or two and it gives you a boost for the day because you can already check something off your list! It really is a great way to start the day!

Take a breath

When I start feeling overwhelmed or like I am not going to be able to accomplish what I need to accomplish - I force myself to stop and take a deep breath. This slows me down from continue on a downward spiral into depressing myself. That deep breath allows me to re-focus and find strength and peace
