get dressed, lazy.
Working from home it’s easy to get into a rut that involves sleeping until you want to and working in your pj’s or yoga pants all day. FYI – wearing yoga pants is not equivalent to getting dressed! At least, I tell myself that or else I’d wear them every.single.day. All day.
so what did I do about it?
My biggest issue is how to get motivated to get dressed and put a spot of makeup on so I don’t feel like a slag come 5pm. So I decided to take a picture of myself every day at 9:45 am. Either I was going to look cute, or I was going to look a wreck. I opted for cute. And, for accountability sake, I’m posting them here. Talk about motivated!! I’ve gotten dressed every day. In real clothes. Complete with a little lip gloss.
how to make it realistic
I’ve been taking a shower at night and blowdrying my hair before bed so I don’t have to do it in the morning. If I have to shower in the morning, it’s going to take me 45 minutes to get dressed and get on with the day. Yesterday, it took me 12 minutes to throw on clothes, foundation, blush, mascara, and a little lip gloss. And brush my teeth. Don’t forget that.
did it work?
You bet. It’s made a huge difference in my attitude, my productivity, but best of all, my self esteem. I didn’t realize how crappy I felt at the end of the day when I was in the same thing I went to bed in the night before. I was amazed at how quickly I got dressed and put a smidge of makeup on. Do you have 12 minutes every day to get presentable? I found the time and am so much happier for it. So is my husband
