These are special times. The home-office that almost all are placed in , is challenging our self. We are forced out of the safety of the routine that our jobs give us, and risk having to see ourselves in a new, unfamiliar light. I fully understand that it feels good to go a bit easy on some routines, when the demands of home office, home schooling and activity leadership are fighting for attention. But, if you have chosen to remove your morning-polish, and rather loaf around in you jamas all day, it can, at worst, wear a sense of self, that is already frail, out even more. I know this to be true, because home office is my normality. And with this experience I have learned that I never feel more tired than the days I haven’t made an effort to meet a fresh self in the mirror. So, I encourage you to prioritise putting a bit of effort into dressing – also in the time of Corona.
In this regard it can be especially efficient to be extra aware of the colours you dress yourself in. Colors affect us far more than many realize, and carry with them both meaning and emotional characters that are well worth noting. Under you’ll find a carousel of picture and texts, of outfits I all colours of the rainbow. I encourage you to read what I have to say about each colour and use them consciously in the weeks to come.
As shown above, I have a clear tendency to use colours with high saturation. They also tend to lean towards the warm side of the colour spectrum. You may have completed different preferences, but still successfully use colours with less saturation – and different hues – and have the same positive effect. I encourage you to test what you have in your closer and what it does to your mood. There is a lot we dont control these days, but how we dress is at least one thing we can get hold of! Good luck, everyone!
