Loungewear is Self Care Too

December 30, 2020

Never in a million years did I think a day would come where I would be tired of wearing pajamas all day.  I used to yearn for a life of pajamas from sun up to sun down and countless hours on the couch.  Be careful what you wish for.  As life has taken a major shift, and I am working from home 4 out of 5 days a week,  I felt myself starting to slip into a rut as my days started to feel very monotonous.  Have you ever seen that episode of Spongebob where Squidward moves to that area with the other squids and all his days are the same and it drives him nuts?  Yeah, that's me right now. 

After trying to figure out different things I could do to lift my spirits I realized that getting dressed was a routine that I often took for granted, and the process of daily preparation helped me create some separation within my day.  So I decided to create a routine for myself throughout the day, and the major part of it is that I change twice daily.  Yes, although I am home the entire day I wake up, eat breakfast, workout, shower, and change into an outfit for the day.  Once work is over and it's time to transition to personal time I hop into my nightgown and lay in my bed or on the couch in that outfit.

It may seem small to some but just that simple change has been a HUGE mood booster for me.  For these reasons I have started to invest more money into loungewear, so that I have different options of what I can wear throughout my work week.  Personally, when I look good I feel good and I am FAR  more productive.  Sometimes I even throw on a red lip, some boy brow, and a little highlighter.  You have to do whatever makes YOU feel better.  It doesn't matter if that feels like a lot to someone else.  As long as it makes you feel good then keep doing it sis.

So if this sounds like it could be a mood elevator for you I've linked a few of the loungewear sets that I have my eye on below.  Let's all be cute in the house together for our own self-care.
