Dressy September

Dressy September

One of the most basic pieces of advice I hear from folks who work from home is to get dressed for work every day. While that seems easy in theory, the level of dressiness differs from person to person. I've never been a big pajamas person, so I always get dressed, usually in shorts and a tee. But does this minimum make me feel like I'm ready for work? Nope. Sure, I got dressed a few times last week, but for real consistency I need to learn better habits.

They say it takes 21 consecutive days of doing something for it to become a habit. If you can do 21, why not 30? So for the month of September, I'm making an effort to get dressed—really get dressed—every single day. Partly to get into the habit of getting ready for work each morning, but also because I don't think you always need a reason to dress up. Just because is just fine.
