I am a big believer in the power of aesthetic appeal. In other words, I believe in beauty. Now, what does this mean? Of course I believe in beauty, you can't really not believe in beauty. But what I mean is that I believe that it is important to surround yourself with beautiful things. I heard once that if you are working on tax forms, or in my case homework, and just don't want to, the activity can become increasingly easier and more approachable if you put on a skirt and place a flower on your desk. I try to live like this. I find it is much easier to get through a hard day, which happen more often than not, if your place of occupation--either a room, office, desk, cubicle, cardboard box, whatever--is decorated in a way that you find beautiful. To me this means covered with roses, vintage gloves, teacups, Jane Austen post cards, and lace, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so you decide what you find beautiful.
I have given you some examples from my room, the place where I spend most of my time. Just remember, this is bout you, whatever makes you feel most comfortable and from there you can move onto feeling beautiful and acting beautifully your self.
