The Dual Effects of Appearance Improvement
The occurrence of emotion is not controllable, whereas the growth of emotion is. As stated in my previous essay, emotions can mostly be controlled by realizing and paying attention to them. However, in some cases we fail to control and get occupied by unfavorable emotions.
In order to avoid it, I suggest we make sure to maintain a neat appearance. A neat appearance means wearing tidier clothes, combing hair, and grooming ourselves, etc.. A neater appearance helps us feel more positively.
On top of that, improving our appearance also improves our sensitivity to the little signs of our internal changes. Little signs such as facial expressions and bodily reactions, that are mostly reflections of our emotional changes, could be observed when the outside conditions are in better shape.
Since emotions are subjective, it is hard to observe them objectively. Objective observation is the essential tool to understand what is going on. It is through our outer appearance that enables us to grasp what is going on inside objectively. So, improving appearance not only makes us more attractive, but it also helps us improve our state of emotions. Those are the dual effects of appearance improvement, a tip to stay happy!
