So, as you all know, most of what I blog about is related to writing and anything fantastical. However, we all know that sometimes your state of mind weighs heavily on how well, or not, your writing day goes.
Some of you may have noticed, and some of you may not have, but there’s something extraordinary about what you wear and it’s correlation to what you wear.
How many times do you just throw something on, leave your hair up and in a knotted mess or down and stringy? You head out to town and you know you look frumpy. Let’s be honest, we say we’re just being comfortable, and it’s true, but it does have a negative effect on our moods once we’re out in the public.
On the flip-side, though, what about those times when you actually put some effort into your hair, makeup and clothes. You and I both know that you automatically have a boost of self-esteem when you hit the town; whether that’s Wal-Mart, the grocery store, work, or an outing.
Okay, great, we know this, but what’s the big deal?
If you really stop and think about it, how often do you feel good about yourself? How often do you feel energized and ready to tackle any tasks you’ve set before you? Sometimes the answer can be a bit low and our
motivation can suffer, thus, or productivity.
When you think about being productive, especially in your writing and career, how you feel makes a HUGE difference. I equate it to being mentally healthy and balanced, and in turn, you’ll be more motivated and proactive. It comes down to prepping yourself for your day. Dress nice, but relaxed (dress-casual), put on makeup, a dash of perfume, and fasten back that hair with some light perfume. Listen to a positive pod-cast and get to it!
The end-result: Productivity and a happy spirit. It may be simple, but it’s totally worth a try. So next time you go out or even stay in, dress up!
Until next time ~ Feliz escribiendo.
