Recently I was speaking with a new mother about her fit and clothing challenges with her ever-changing body. One thing she said was particularly noteworthy. After giving birth, none of her clothes fit anymore so when she went clothing shopping, instead of getting the typical jeans and t-shirts, she got nice blouses and pants instead. Because she knew there was going to have less time everyday for hair and make-up, she knew these nice clothes would help her feel good.
Your clothing affects the way you think, the way you feel, the way you act, and the way that others react to you.
(source: Judith Rasband). This new mother had come to that conclusion all on her own.
Particularly for work-at-home moms, it’s easy to get into a rut with your clothing when wearing jeans, t-shirt and sweats all the time which can lead to feelings of indifference, lack of motivation, and depression.
The quickest way to feel better about yourself is to wear something nice. Nice doesn’t have to be an evening gown or business blazer. Nice can be a pretty cardigan or a fun headband, or a pair of pants that elongate your legs. Take a few minutes everyday to select clothes you feel good wearing and apply a little make-up. See if it makes a difference in how you feel.
So what type of clothes make you feel good?
