Let's all stop wearing our sweats and pajamas!!!

“I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.” — Lady Gaga

I’ve seen it in myself, I have had a hard time during this pandemic to rally up the energy to dress…not dress up just dress And I am assuming you all have too. There are 3 reasons I am pleading with you all to get out of your yoga pants, sweats, or PJs  

  1. It makes you feel better, more confident
  2. If you start to wear regular clothes maybe your neighbor will too
  3. We need to start expressing ourselves again if not to the world to ourselves.

100 women were interviewed for a study on clothing and its effects on depression , and their ages ranged from 21 to 64 years, according to the news release. The researchers also found that 73% of women in the study “shopped for clothes at least every few months.” The majority of women, or 96%, “believed that what they wear affects how confident they feel,” according to the news release.

Researchers determined from the results that there is a possibility that wearing certain clothes can affect emotional states. “The strong link between clothing and mood state suggests we should put on clothes that we associate with happiness, even when feeling low,” according to the news release. The author of the study, Karen Pine, who is the coauthor of Flex: Do Something Different and a professor in the School of Psychology at University of Hertfordshire, added in the news release that jeans are more associated with a depressed mood state and that women should consider abandoning them for a different clothing choice in order to feel better.

Dress up a little make the world a better place!
