Today's Migraine and Headache Awareness Month blog challenge theme is Pretty Woman- What do you do to look good when you feel like crap?
I don't know about most people, but I've mostly given up on looking good when I feel my worst. I have to struggle so hard to be functional that my appearance takes a back seat. Instead I try to compensate on the days that I am feeling better.
On my better days I like to do a few simple things to make me feel a little more 'girly'. I take time to style my hair, instead of just letting it dry on its own. I make sure to put on my cutest pajamas. And, if I feel particularly good I may even paint my fingernails. It doesn't take much to contrast with how I feel when I am at my worst.
When I was younger I didn't take much stock in the claims that you would feel better if you spruced up a little bit. But I have learned that it really does work. So, when you can, spend a little extra time to make yourself look refreshed because it might actually make yourself feel refreshed.
June 2013, Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, is dedicated to Unmasking the Mystery of Chronic Headache Disorders. The 2013 Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Blog Challenge is a project of FightingHeadacheDisorders.com.
