At first, working from home is great. You can get up when you want. You don’t need to deal with the commute, and you find that you’ve got many more hours in the day than you realized. However, as useful as working from home can be for your productivity; it can eventually shift you towards some bad habits. While it’s convenient to roll out of bed and go straight to your desk, this can impact your outlook, which is why we have collected four reasons to get ready every day. 

It Immediately Boosts Your Mood 

Forcing yourself out of bed can be one of the most difficult things in life, but actually doing it can directly boost and improve your mood. Even if you’re not going anywhere, it’s always worth getting dressed up, even if this might sound strange. Put on a crisp shirt and pair of trousers, pick out your favourite tie or blazer, and wash your hair and add matte pomade for a natural matte finish to make you look good on those Zoom calls with the boss. If you look the part, you’ll feel the part, and this can immediately improve your self-esteem, making getting up a little easier. 

Getting Ready Puts You In the Zone 

Getting dressed will also put you in the right zone to get on with your day. Sure, pyjamas and an old t-shirt are comfortable, but this also means you’re clinging too much to the cozy life. Although you’re working at home, you need to find a separation between work and relaxation. If you set out your work clothes (even when you’re not going anywhere), you’ll feel more confident, professional, and motivated, avoiding the risk of slacking on the job. 

You Will Be Ready for Anything 

A simple but effective reason to get dressed every morning is that you’ll be ready for anything. You might not be expecting any company, but you never know who could drop by to say hello. Wouldn’t you much rather them see you ready for the day instead of still with the bed head and spaghetti-stained shirts? Of course you would. The same goes for digital meetings. Being prepared will make a good impression because you can’t hide behind a switched-off camera forever. 

It Helps You Get Out of Your Funk 

It’s easy to forget the last time you showered when working from home, and the longer it goes, the worse you will feel. If you make a point to get dressed every day, you can avoid getting into a funk, which will keep your spirits up. If you’re experiencing depression as a result of isolation, take showering as a chance to reset, as you’ll feel more normal, giving you the tools you need to succeed. 

Taking Each Day As It Comes 

Working from home or being stuck inside due to lockdown measures can lose its novelty and appeal sooner rather than later. You might not expect it, but it can quickly impact your mental wellbeing, and if you want to keep on top of your health and productivity, you need to find little solutions that can make a big difference, and getting ready every day is one of these solutions.
