After leaving our corporate jobs last September, we basically live in workout clothes (ie- NO makeup, no put-together outfits, etc.) We could NOT wait until we didn’t have to do our hair anymore, paint our faces (LOL), pick out business casual outfits. All we wanted was to put on comfy spandex shorts, loose tops, and throw our wavy, undone hair into a bun in the mornings, and run out the door.
Well, those thoughts lasted a couple of months, and we were happy doing so! Now, though, I have had my fun with not getting ready, and am ready to “beautify” myself a couple of times a week. That doesn’t mean I still won’t be running around in my workout gear and makeup-free face most of the week, but I am going to be making an effort to “get ready” some days even if I don’t have any major plans.
There is something about getting ready and “beautifying” yourself that just makes you feel better. I know some people (even those who work from home) like to get up in the mornings and get ready just becasue they feel like they will be more productive by doing so. I don’t really operate that way. I will still be productive even if I am in my pajamas all day.
