What is Dopamine Dressing?
Dopamine dressing, ever heard of it?
Even if you have not heard of it, you definitely have done it.
What is it?
Dressing in a way that brings you joy and boosts your mood.
Researchers refer to it as 'enclothed cognition', texture and style can boost mood and more, as well. What we wear affects how we feel so much that it can distort and determine our thoughts and judgments.
Put simply, dopamine dressing affects mood and performance.
How do you do it?
Become aware of your style and your mood, journal your choices to reflect and discover what lifts you up, remember, it is not just about colour!
Think about how we have changed as a result of the pandemic and people have adapted to the virtual world, why not dress for this communication, it will make a difference to you as well as to the other person who may compliment you, but will certainly notice you are not wearing the same old hoodie.
The freedom that comes with dressing for you, the way you really want to, is a dopamine trigger in itself. You may realise that it's time to leave your comfort zone. The novelty can enhance mood, lower stress and help you see things in a different light.
