What do you do when you feel down especially when you wake up in the morning and you have to pick out what to wear ?
Does that feeling affect the clothes you pick out to wear for that day? Does your mood alter your sense of style when you wake up not feeling good?
If this has been so for you on some occasions, how then can you avoid looking like your bad mood: I will give you three tested and trusted ways:
Firstly, be deliberate about conditioning your mind to the fact that no matter what, your outlook does not have to be affected by how you feel inside, immediately you wake up and the feeling of gloom comes over you. Journal how you feel at that moment as journaling how you feel before picking out what to wear can helps you detox your mind.
Secondly, mentally preview the places you have to be that day, better still write them out, if you have you go to work, you know you cannot afford looking all confused, If you have to visit a friend, you can choose to be casual smart as you might want to avoid being irritated by a tight clothing or too serious a dress, if you are to go to church or for an interview, try to pick the clothing you love the most and is presentable as well.
One fun fact you might not know is, A dress, A top, A shirt, a footwear, an accessory has the ability to lift up your mood which is why it is important for you to invest in pieces that you love and cherish as they will come through for you on days like this.
While it is necessary to purchase outfits that fit your work style, it is very important to purchase outfits that you truly love but can also be incorporated into your daily life if need be, it could even be the clothing that comes in your favourite colour or a colour that makes you calm when you see it in your wardrobe.
I asked a friend today what she does when she wakes up and her mood is not all that good and she has to go to work while still making sure she is presentable, Her answer was that she listens to music to lift up her spirit or she calls someone she can talk too who she knows will make her laugh. You can as well as do this too, listen to music to brighten your atmosphere.
Thirdly, Waking up to Affirmations can work a great deal. Affirmations work best on days like this. You can write a number of affirmations that has to do with your body, your mood, your fashion sense. I will share some of them at the end of this post. Write them out, paste them on your wardrobe door, on your vision board, on your room door so that whenever you wake up and you do not feel too good. You can read them out aloud. Affirmations works little wonders.
Remember the days when you feel extremely good and you just want to dress according to how you feel meanwhile you might just over do it because of how you feel within, sometimes you happen to simply wear everything right . Feeling bad at the beginning of your day can also affect the way you dress if you are not careful which is why there is need for you to keep your feelings in check whilst picking out what to wear.
Affirmations you can write out and confess daily. Please personalize them.
