Alrighty then, so now that we’re feeling all forest bathed up, and our serotonin is sky rocketed from yesterdays walk in nature. its time to have some fun. What self love challenge would be complete without getting yourself glammed up?
For todays’ self love challenge, I’m giving you permission to buy yourself something!
Yeppers, get yourself downtown to your favorite clothing store and actually BUY that new outfit you’ve had your eye on!
Why? Because you DESERVE IT!
Don’t believe me? Let me explain….
Did you know that what you wear can affect your mood? I’m being serious here. I’ll throw in a personal story. When I was in 2nd grade I had this one sweater I liked to wear. Well, I swear to you, every time I wore the darn thing, I’d get in trouble that same day at school. Either for not paying attention, or stuff like that. One day I drew the parallel between my behavior and the sweater, so I stopped wearing it. Problem solved.
I grew up thinking that was a pretty strange thing, but the I did my research, I found out that I was not crazy.
Check out this book~ Mind What You Wear: The Psychology of Fashion.
Here’s the excerpt from the book:
“Professor Karen Pine delves into the psychology of what you wear and reveals that clothes have mind-altering properties.
The most important decision you make every morning may be what to wear. Why do your choose the clothes you do; do they express your true personality and can they really determine the course your day will take? Or even your life?
In this book Karen Pine goes ‘behind the seams’, revealing the hidden secrets contained in the clothes we wear. She uncovers startling evidence for how our clothes have the power to change our minds. And she shows how making a simple tweak to what you wear can literally be life-changing.
Karen unmasks how the right outfit can make you a better thinker. Or more likely to get the right job. She shows how clothes can boost your confidence, bolster your self-esteem or lift your mood. And the impact a colour change can have on your sex appeal.”
