I like to treat myself to inexpensive, fun, bright nail polish and cute hair accessories. Even if you're very ill, invest in a small effort to make yourself feel good about yourself. -- Sara M.

I agree. I have a collection of glitter nail polish that I never could have gotten away with in conservative law offices, and next to the bed is makeup and lipstick in colors that I'd never be seen with outside the house, but just the act of putting it on perks me up when I'm stuck in bed.
