How can our clothes make us happy you ask?
Well firstly, they stop us from being naked – unless that’s a negative for you? I’m not judging.
In all seriousness though, our clothes (and actions surrounding them) can actually make us feel happier.
Obviously, for a good proportion of us, a new outfit can make us feel amazing. Especially if that outfit signals the arrival of an exciting event.
Our clothes can help us feel better in a number of other ways too…
Our clothes play a significant part in projecting our identity. Once I was the power-dressing, killer-heel wearing buyer for a retail company, now I’m the more laid-back, bold-print wearing mum & blogger who teams nearly everything with a pair of trainers. As we evolve so do our wardrobes – the clothes help us to feel connected to who we are and what we do.
Plus there are so many slogan t-shirts, sweats etc available – it’s really easy to project our message out there and show the world what we stand for.
How positive do we feel when we receive a compliment about what we are wearing? Assuming we’re able to accept it well, that is. Here’s a tip…just smile & say thank you.
Receiving a compliment is not the be-all and end-all but it’s nice to know when our style is appreciated. Come on let’s be honest, it raises our confidence levels!
For the greater good
Not a week goes by without me getting charity donation bags through the door. But this is where your clothes can make you feel good in a different way – through the act of giving.
Donation of our pre-loved clothes to help charities can make us feel pretty good about ourselves. There will always be someone you can benefit just by the simple act of giving something you no longer need away.
We can also play a part in supporting small independent fashion retailers; help the environment and positively impact future generations by making good choices about where we shop.
I know it may sound a bit bizarre to become sentimental over a jumper – but it’s true – clothes that have positive experiences linked to them bring us comfort. I’ve kept the dress I was wearing when I met my husband and I have other items of clothes I never plan to wear again but keep because when I look at them they create a warm feeling inside.
These are a few reasons that lights up our mood while shopping. I’m sure you relate with them too.
