35 Quick Pick-Me-Ups

images

The premise of this blog is how to look and feel good without spending a lot of time. Sometimes I have a day that is just down in the dumps, so I started brainstorming quick pick me ups that (nearly instantly) make me look or feel better. Some have to do with my outward appearance, some have to do with my internal state of mind.  I always find that when I feel better on the inside it translates to the outside.
