While there is no inherent reason that January 1st is a better day to adopt significant lifestyle changes than, say, August 18th, the idea of starting each new year with a new outlook on life is appropriately symbolic. As the holiday season comes to a close and we are all still awash in the love that surrounds us, you almost can’t help but want to make an effort to be your best self. The air is abuzz with hope for the future, and the sentiment is definitely contagious.
Whatever you have planned to do this year—be it summit a mountain or simply eat more vegetables—updating your outer appearance to reflect your inner resolve is a great first step to take. And with your wardrobe serving as a visual reminder of what you’ve set out to do, you’ll be more likely to actually stick to your plan.
Associate Your Clothes with Your Goals
Let’s say your New Year’s resolution is to be more productive at work. Even if you already have a substantial collection of office wear, adding a few new pieces to your wardrobe can still make that goal much more attainable.
First, buy a few new office-appropriate pieces, like Calvin Klein’s Cotton Stretch Shirts. Then associate each of those new items with a specific work-related goal. For example, promise yourself that every time you wear your new blue dress shirt, you will send five emails, reach out to a client, or get to work 30 minutes early. These goals will, of course, need to be tailored to your specific job, but the overarching concept remains the same.
Dress for Your New Year Physique
Or, if like so many others, your resolution revolves around improving your health through regular diet and exercise, that same blue shirt can serve as a reminder to take the stairs instead of the elevator or to pack a healthy lunch instead of eating out. You can also buy fun new workout clothes like Champion’s Ladies’ Double Dry V-Neck Performance T-Shirt or Champion Double Dry Performance T-Shirt for men and commit to hitting the gym every time you wear them.
No matter your resolution, it’s important to find a way to make it not only attainable, but also enjoyable. So take advantage of all of the great clothing available at Clothing Shop Online, find something you love and use it to help you achieve your goals.
