The Importance of Dressing Up ….

Do it for yourself!

Life is all about attitude.

A person, who makes an effort to dress, wear bright cheerful colours, hair neatly done, adding on accessories that suits the attire with smart comfortable footwear, starts the day well.

A sizable amount of our income is spent on clothes. We all have different tastes, some like traditional, others modern styles, some bright colours, others dull muted ones.

Many of us have wardrobes full of clothes, with matching accessories, but are too lazy or rushed to spend time dressing up. There are many who pull out clothes in a hurry, and wear them crushed to work. Even if it something nice that you have worn, the creases on your clothes make you look unkempt and everyone you come into contact with realises that you have dressed in a haste.

So very often I have succumbed to laziness and gone to work knowing that I needed to wash my hair and instead knotted it up into a bun. Those days never went unnoticed, friends would diplomatically tell me how they preferred me with my hair open and I would realise that it impacted my mood for the rest of the day.

It is funny how compliments from friends and colleagues pep you up. The day you wear something nice, get noticed and appreciated, your day goes by well.

Initially after I quit working, I realised I stopped dressing up. All my formal clothes lay neatly folded away in my cupboard. I would pull out something casual and spent days in my oldest jeans and tee shirts.

I enjoyed it for a while and then realised I felt dowdy most of the time, which impacted my mood and made me grumpy. I, then decided there was no point waiting for an opportunity to wear my formal clothes.

So I now pull out my nicest clothes very often, and dress up for myself. I find the moment I make the effort, wear something elaborate, I start feeling good. I may not get compliments, but it enhances my confidence and makes me happy.

Every time you feel a little low, get up, get dressed in your best, go out and meet your friends and acquaintances.

Its a sure shot recipe to set your day rolling …
