How to Feel Prettier

jenna and i looking lovingly at each other

Ugh. Looking at myself in the mirror gives me anxiety. Another zit? Why is my hair doing that? I heard about this trick a while back, but I always forget to use it.

Look at yourself as if you're looking at a friend.

It really works! You instantly give yourself a break and gloss over the imprefections. In the end, it always goes back to the this beautiful advice by Mindy Kaling's mom. "You have to be your own best friend. If you always remember that, you will always have someone there with you."

But that one is a lot harder to put into practice. :) Start small, right?
