But I Only Wear it At Home Clothes

Do you have a bunch of " But I only wear it at home " clothes?

Are these clothes that you wouldn't want to be caught in by friends, colleagues or an ex-lover?

Do you sometimes wear them out of the house? On that quick trip to the supermarket (though you'd hate to see someone you know whilst wearing them)?

What is it about these clothes that makes you keep on wearing them? Super comfortable? Can't be bothered?

Why do you keep them?

Is it because you have spent money on them and getting rid of them justifies the time and effort it went into earning, purchasing, shopping for them?

Is it because you don't want to spoil your good clothes? You've been brought up to keep your "Sunday best" for special occasions and every day is not special enough to wear something smarter that makes you look and feel fabulous?

I'd love for you to let me know the reasons why you have "I only wear it at home clothes" leave a comment about why you have them and when you wear them.

Now I want you to think about this...

What are they achieving for you?

If you're wearing clothes that don't make you feel good (in fact they are more likely making you feel bad, as research shows that what we wear affects our moods) then what are they achieving? What impact are they having on your mood and your life?

Sure we all need an outfit or two to get bleach on or to garden in (these are not "only wear at home clothes" these are a purpose based outfit). So why all the rest of these clothes?

There is research that shows that if we are feeling down we won't wear an outfit that we associate with feeling good! Now that's kind of crazy, when you think about it. If you want to feel good, you can put that great outfit on and it help to change your mood to a more positive one!

So do you really need to be keeping all those "only at home" clothes? I want you to think about how they are affecting your psyche before you reach for them and put them on.

Let me know what it is that makes you keep and wear them and how they really make you feel!
