Ever been called “high-maintenance”?
Did it frustrate you?
High-maintenance is associated with negativity, prissiness, and snotty behavior. Low-maintenance is associated with not caring about what people think, sometimes to the point of letting yourself go.
I prefer . . . “mid-maintenance” and want to share five ways to be so.
Five Ways to be Mid-Maintenance
1. When getting take-out, use a real plate instead of styrofoam containers when possible.
low-maintenance: eating out of the to-go container or wrapper
high-maintenance: not eating take-out
2. You have a hair stylist.
low-maintenance: not coloring your hair or only getting it trimmed
high-maintenance: planning out an entire year’s worth of appointments to have your hair cut, colored, toned, and styled. I confess, I am extremely high-maintenance when it comes to my hair, and actually have scheduled every month’s hair appointment until December.
3. Zebra-toe pedicure, self-polished fingernails.
low-maintenance: unpolished, untrimmed nails
high-maintenance: nail salon mani/pedis and tips or acrylics
4. Wear heels with jeans.
low-maintenance: wear sneakers or tennis shoes with jeans
high-maintenance: designer jeans and Louboutin (for you, Bhilip)
5. Keep make-up in your purse at all times.
low maintenance: Chapstick only.
high maintenance: won’t leave the house without full make-up applied.
