Life can be hard sometimes. Managing your home, playing chauffeur, volunteering at their school, getting in a workout to name a few! I’m tired just thinking about it! But my goal here on this blog is to always find ways to encourage you guys. We’re in this together ladies. We’re all fighting our own battles – big and small – learning a few tips to help pick you up along the way will always come in handy!
6 Tips for Feeling Great All Day Long!
They are so simple too, which if you’ve read here for a while, you know that’s exactly my style. I’m all about taking what could be difficult or too much and making it work for our busy, every day lives. I hope you find these tips helpful! Give them a try and report back!
Simple makeup routine
If we’re being realistic, we don’t have time to put on a full face of makeup every day. It’s not practical and most of the time, I don’t even want to! I also don’t want to look horrible, so a little makeup is a good idea most days. It’s amazing how on days where you’re put together and you happen to catch yourself in the mirror and it’s not a complete scare. Ya, those are the best. I don’t, however, think there’s any help for the times when you think you look good and then you turn on your camera and it’s on selfie mode. Ya. #theworst.
Put on a cute outfit
Let me tell you a little secret. It’s just as easy to slip on something cute – even just jeans & a tee – as it is to slip on yoga pants. I know, mind-blowing information over here! But seriously, it doesn’t have to be something super nice or heels or anything like that. Just slip on some skinny jeans & a flowy top with the front half-tuck going on. DONE. Or some boyfriend jeans with your favorite white tee. DONE. It’s easy and you feel so much better than if you had stayed in your sweats. I promise! Which in turn helps you get so much more done. Just speaking from my own personal experience here!
Do your hair
I know, this one is tough and it often alludes most of us. But once again, it doesn’t have to be some fancy updo or something that will take forever. How about if you normally wear a ponytail, try a side braid. If you normally wear your hair down, try half-up one day. It could even be as simple as braiding your bangs out of your face or wearing a headband. It will boost your confidence that day & the more practice you have the more it will boost your hair skills too! Win-win ladies!
Sounds funny, right? I hear ya, but think about it with me for a second. We are always so used to taking care of everyone else, we often forget our own simple things. Take a second to put on a face mask at night before bed. Paint your nails. Soak your feet, you deserve it!
Even if we do have chances every once in a while to take a few minutes to ourselves, we still have to find time to fit things into our everyday life. That is why I love the concept of Crest 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste System. There are a lot of ways to whiten your teeth like full on systems, leaving those strip things on and all that but why not just whiten your teeth every time you brush? The Crest 3D System comes with two steps, a deep-cleaning toothpaste & a whitening gel. You brush for one minute with the deep-cleaning toothpaste and another minute with the whitening gel. You get your tooth whitening done without any extra time at all. And I know all you busy ladies out there can appreciate that!
And then after that brilliant smile will help you complete your beautiful look and give you confidence throughout the day!
Throw in a small workout
Full disclosure – I just recently started working out consistently again. I was a total dud during the summer. But it’s amazing how you feel after you work out! And I’m not talking like full on 2 hour weights & cardio type thing. Heck, I don’t even think you have to have a gym membership to do it! Instead just do some squats, lunges, pushes & sit ups at home. Even if it’s just 30 minutes a day, that’s better than nothing! It’ll life your spirits and have you feeling great throughout the day!
What do you think about my tips? I know that a lot of you appreciate my tips for busy moms, how to feel good about yourself in less time and things like that. That’s why I thought it would be fun to share how you can lift your spirits and feel great throughout your day.
What do you say ladies – let’s go conquer this day in confidence! Who’s with me!
