WAY TO WELLNESS #5
Dressing your part, whatever that part may be, is vital to communicating the impression of who you are and who you want to become, and ideally it should be the first thing on your mind each morning. Whether you work in an office or at home, getting dressed is one of the first steps to getting off on the right foot each day. People who pay attention to their personal appearance tend to have increased confidence and overall performance. Think about it…if you take a few extra minutes to dress yourself for success, you feel better and naturally have more energy from those feel-good hormones! Even if you don’t work, getting dressed can set the tone for a great day. If you stay in your pajamas, you are always ready for bed. If you get dressed, you are ready for ANYTHING! First impressions mean a lot and you never know who you may encounter throughout the day.
WORK NOTE: Take time to evaluate the culture of your workplace. Obviously if you work in construction, wearing a suit and tie every day may not make sense, but you can still find ways to take it up a notch by dressing for success in a way that fits appropriately with your work environment.
