Over the past couple of years, many of us have switched from working in offices to working on our computers at home. With ever-increasing internet access and speeds, remote working was already on the rise before the pandemic, but Covid 19 sent it stratospheric. Now, many companies have moved to a remote or hybrid working arrangement. Whether you love it or would prefer to be back at the office, working from home is here to stay.
Comfy Doesn’t Have To Mean Sloppy
If you’ve spent any time working from home, chances are you’ve occasionally found yourself wearing some, let’s say, less-than-smart clothing. While it can be really nice to relax and even slob out once in a while, wearing scruffy clothes is unlikely to help you work to your best ability. What we wear has been shown to affect how we feel and how well we work, so it’s a good idea to wear the right clothes while working from home.
And yet, it’s also vital to be comfortable while working, especially when we’re working on a computer for the whole day. Let’s face it, who wants to wear a suit, alone, as they work on a computer in their own home? So, what to wear while working from home that will feel comfortable, look smart enough for virtual meetings, and make us feel great? Activewear is the answer. Modern activewear is a long way from the crazy-colored spandex monstrosities of the past. These days, activewear is not only comfortable but presentable too.
Are you Dressed for Success?
If you sometimes struggle to feel motivated while working from home, some different clothes could help. By selecting a special work wardrobe and making sure to change into a particular outfit when you begin your working day, you’ll signal to your brain that it’s time to start work and you’ll be much more likely to feel motivated. Then, at the end of the working day make sure to get changed so your brain knows you’ve finished work!
The ideal work outfit for these times is smart activewear, which combines the comfort of our favorite sweats with the presentable look of smart office wear. GIve it a try!
