Adding an extra hour each day reaps enormous benefits for your appearance. A healthy person is more attractive than someone who is not. Two aspects of being healthy are getting exercise and eating correctly.
Those who get out of bed early can squeeze in a workout. You don’t have to be a morning person if you wake up early. Instead of snoozing, you are moving. Hitting the gym before the sun rises is an excellent way to seize the day. Putting on your casual jumpsuits and starting your meditating in early-morning light is also a way to find peace and self-control.
The habit can boost your productivity and mood. The session will wake you up, energize you, and make you feel less stressed and more relaxed. Who do you think has a better appearance, someone who is relaxed and energized or someone who is tense and stressed?
Getting up early, allows you to eat healthily. Too often, people running late give into the temptation of a doughnut or grab a breakfast burrito from a fast food restaurant. Extra calories add up fast. That extra hour in the morning can be used to cook a high-protein, healthy meal. The healthy breakfast makes you feel satisfied and curbs cravings during the day.
Time to Plan What to Wear
That extra hour means you have the opportunity to spend time on little things that improve your appearance such as ironing your blouse or choosing an elegant wrap dress and accessories to go with your outfit. You have time to fix your hair and moustache, and for ladies, to apply makeup correctly and choose a nice lipstick.
Studies have shown that a job candidate’s appearance and attire have an impact on the likelihood of being hired. Some easy fashion ideas include taking time to do a once-over after you are dressed. Snip loose threads and wipe away shoe scuffs.
Fashionistas suggest having a capsule wardrobe made up of pieces that can be mixed and matched. Start with an outwear collection. A polyester duffle coat in black, green, or coffee can polish an outfit. Other suggestions include denim, leather or faux leather jackets, blazers, dark jeans, and a white button-down shirt.
Take Advantage of the Time
Waking up early is not a magic appearance enhancer, in and of itself. Take advantage of the extra time to become healthier and well put together. An early morning arising can be a zen experience. It is a time to think, read, or breathe. You will feel better, and those around you will notice how attractive you are.
I’ll be the first to admit that sleeping is my favorite thing to do. I love going to bed early (most night, anyway) and waking up late. On average I get about 8-9 hours of sleep every single night, but I always aim for 10 or 11. Yes, I fucking love to sleep and nap. That being said, I’ve heard many cons about oversleeping. It can actually make you more tired. It might be in my best interest to start waking up a little earlier to have time for breakfast, a proper shower, and picking out a nice work outfit. I’ll be honest, sometimes I don’t have enough time in the mornings to even brush my hair.
