Dress according to your priorities.
For me, this has meant adopting a whole new sense of style. I am wearing a lot less jeans and whole lot more cozy leggings, sweatpants, and gym wear. Why? Because it aligns well with both my fitness goals and desire to actively play with my babies without caring if I get spit up or slobbered on. And lucky for me, activewear is sort of a style now, so it's not any sacrifice to my self image. Below is the cutest and most comfortable romper ever from Tobi.

Put on some makeup.
You don't have to spend a ton of time on it, and probably nobody else cares, but there's something about putting makeup on that mentally gets me ready to accomplish something that day. Most of the time I never even leave the house, but I still find it worth it for the mental boost it gives me. Face on, and you will face the day with enthusiasm!
Surround yourself with a clean space.
Is my house always clean? Heck no. But do I continue to make it a priority to clean up as best I can? Absolutely. Why bother with 10 month old twins in the house? Because I recognize the huge difference a clean space can have on my psyche! When things are put away in their place, I internally feel at peace and more focused throughout the day.
Make time to be creative.
Whether it's crafting, cooking, or working up a blog post, I always feel better when I have time to let my creativity loose. And the more I tap into these types of activities, the more creative I realize I can be. It keeps me growing as a person and I am convinced is helping me to reach my full potential. It's important. Trust me.
Break a sweat.
As a working mom, this one is tough. I totally get the struggle of putting your kids' priorities first and attempting to get enough sleep to function throughout the day. It doesn't always happen. But we're talking about the perfect day here. And more days you break a sweat, the closer to perfect your days will become. I could write a novel about the benefits of exercise, but I'll just let you Google that one. It doesn't have to be a killer workout. Just move our body! I try to keep a variety of programs on hand so that I can match my workout with my mood. Because I don't care exactly what I'm doing most days, just that I'm doing something!
