Make an effort
My dad mentioned to me that the other day when all of us were out of town he felt a little lonely but he felt better after he washed his car. I had my car washed today and felt better too. I can see out the back window. There's no goop on the windshield, no dust on the hood. For $6.99, I felt better not only about my car but also about life in general (and this is even though I'm sort of sick). The same principle applies to clothes, relationships, meals, grammar, haircuts, and house decoration. You simply have to make an effort. When we make the effort to be more presentable to the world, we feel better. At least I do.
