Why what you wear is all in your mind

It’s all in your mind

When I realised that your relationship with our clothes and bodies is all in your mind, not in your wardrobe, I was so excited.  It was like a missing piece of the jigsaw for me.  Out of that realisation came a new styling course.

We have opened the doors on “Rock your wardrobe and look a million dollars”.  You can see more details and the introductory videos here:

Rock your wardrobe and look a million dollars

In video 2 we look at examples of how your wardrobe is packed full of emotions, both healthy and unhealthy.

What’s in your wardrobe is not about your clothes.  It’s about what’s in your mind.  This is the major mistake that everyone makes when thinking about their wardrobe.  It’s not about the clothes, it’s about your emotions.

Emotions lurking in your wardrobe

There are a lot of emotions hidden in your wardrobe.  There are good emotions or healthy emotions.  These would be attached to clothes in your wardrobe that remind you of the good times.

So you might have clothes still in your wardrobe that you wore the first time you went to the ballet at the met, or the opera in Venice, or the first time your husband took you on a date, or the first time you gave an important speech. 

And there are negative emotions, things you don’t want to think about, but which also lurk in your wardrobe.  Negative emotions will often surround items such as clothes you don’t fit into, or that are long past their use-by date but which you hang onto because of the memories associated with them.  Each time you look at them, you are reminded of the memory or thought, “you’re too big to wear that”, “you don’t fit into those”, “those were good times but now they’ve gone”.  Do you know what I mean?  And these thoughts are constant, they don’t go away.  Each time you see those size 0 pair of trousers, the same thought crops up, “You’re not 16 now, old and you’re past it!”

Manage your mind before your organise your clothes

Once I started to realise that what goes on in your mind is so much more important than the organisation of the clothes I started to monitor what I was thinking and the clothes in my wardrobe.

I still have clothes that I can’t bear to part with even though they are too small or don’t fit well.  With some of them I’ve even made a decision to get rid of them, removed them from the wardrobe, put them in a bag to go to the charity shop.  And found the bag months later, undelivered.  It’s a wrench to get rid of some clothes. I really do understand that.

However, unless you deal with your mind first, you’ll end up back in the same place in a few months time.

Rock your wardrobe and look a million dollars

The reason I created the course, Rock your wardrobe and look a million dollars, is because I realised that the connection between the brain and the clothes is the key factor in having a great relationship with your clothes, your body and your mind.  I didn’t imagine that I would create this course, let alone launch it!  I had something else in mind.  But once I realised the value of the mind/clothes connection I realised that it was the missing link in my wardrobe for me, and that if it was the case for me, it would be the case for someone else.

The course starts soon.  If you are curious to hear a little more you can watch the introductory videos here:

Rock your wardrobe and look a million dollars

Each video is quite short so they won’t take long to watch.

It’s my great pleasure to invite you onto the course.  It’s deliberately priced to be really good value but offer amazing results.  You won’t find anything else of the same value out there.  Come and join us and find out for yourself.

Have a great day!

Sarah
