So as someone who loves to get dressed, and as someone who has struggled with my weight pretty much my entire life, it took me a long time to get to a point where I can accept myself. and during my time in college, i developed what I call the Monday Rule. The Monday rule is simple. (btw it doesn’t have to be on a Monday. I’ll explain that a lil bit later) You find your best/favorite outfit and wear to work or school.
This is a big deal for me because, everyone knows one of the worse days of the week is Monday. Its the 1st day back to work/school and you really don’t want to be there. So the only way I get through my Monday classes is by dressing up and looking good. Because when you look good, you feel good. And when people give me compliments it makes me feel good and helps me get through my day and ultimately my week.
Now i mentioned above that it doesn’t have to be on a Monday. I say that because in college, you may have one or no classes on a Monday, and really I like to wear my best outfit, when I have more classes to go through, cause that gives me more time for people to see my outfit.
I know this sounds a lil conceited, but hey! I’m telling you it works.
Give your Monday rule a try!
