A positive start
Hope that you’re having a good day. Did you know how much our individual personal output and outlook is affected by the decisions we make about clothes?
Starting your day on a positive, making sure those first few things that you do in the day are organised, simple and rewarding sets the right tone for the rest of that day. This routine forms a powerful personal asset called enclothed cognition, and it’s something that we’re all capable of achieving.
The night before, think about what the next day holds, make sure that you have your ‘look’ for the day. Something that’s appropriate to your activities - desk bound, multi meetings, travel, locations and the weather/time of year.
This way, the first thing the next day, you’re not faffing around, trying to put your look together, panic ironing or even washing, dare we even say, recycling (pongy items) from the day or days before.
We’re not going to go all ‘cub scouts’ on you I promise, but being prepared means you start out positively, clear about what you’re doing. Rather than scavenge hunting those old shoes from the back of the wardrobe, realising that the top from last summer has a stain on the bottom and a host of other wardrobe fails that really will effect your outlook for the day ahead.
Even if you’re a morning person, up with the lark and ready to go, it’s worth investing a little time the night before to think about your dress code for the next days activities.
BETTER NIGHTS SLEEP
Being prepared, having clothes ready that are appropriate to the occasion is powerful for everyone. It will help you have a better nights sleep the night before! Quite simply it’s one less thing to think about, so you won’t be lying in bed a midnight trying to remember where you ‘stored’ your summer jacket through winter.
