WATCH: Julianne Hough shares teary message with fans for heartfelt reason 

The TV star appears to have added her spectacles to hammer home her "Monday Mantra" about how to see life events "more clearly".

Captioning her flawless photo, she penned: "Monday Mantra: I can see clearly now. Anyone else have those moments in life when you are so 'in the thick of it' that it feels like you can’t see clearly - that it’s super muddy and blurry?

"It almost gives you a headache? Also, what even is 'it'? You can’t even pinpoint the 'it'!"

She added: "One of my friends @tessandrachavez gave me an expression that helped me a lot... she said you know, sometimes you just have to 'drone out' - I was like wait, like a drone you fly?

"She said, yeah, drone out so you can see clearly in a more aware and higher perspective. I loved that visual and it’s been my new favorite expression when I need to remind myself I’m stuck in the mud and that I know what to do to see the situation at hand more clearly!"
