Does Getting Dressed Increase Productivity?

article image placeholderUploaded by @Noalily
And I'm doing all this to sit at my desk next to my bed to do my work. But I feel so much more productive instead of being in my pajamas, not showered, knowing that I could easily get into bed. But when I'm in my outside clothing, then it's like, oh, the bed is off limits until you're in your pajamas and it's night time. So I think these nails have changed me for the better and I give very great backstrap scratches now

Wishing you all a lovely day 🥰

I think close get the body into a groove of, like, okay, I'm about to engage in something other than navel gazing, and I think it's a good thing there's total time for pajama work, though. I honor that a lot. So great question. Great question

And like, if I stay in my pajamas, my brain is like, oh, it's rough time. And it's like, really hard to get working. So I noticed. I love this post because I totally agree that does getting dressed increase productivity? It's like a subconscious switch that you give to your brain, right? So, like, when I make myself get dressed, even if I'm working from home, I'm like so much more productive

But also kind of like you said, even if you're not even getting ready for the day and you just do little things to make yourself, I don't know, I guess feel alive, I would say. So like you said, like doing your nails or like, for example, if someone not myself but if someone else put mascara on for the first time and it just made them feel like a new person, then I feel like that is another way to just kind of reinvigorate yourself

Hello. Noa. Loved hearing you on. Swell. It's exactly how you are in real life, which I love. To answer your question. Yeah. I definitely think dressing up, obviously you just feel more productive because you're like, I don't know, you already have one part of your day. Like you already did something like accomplishing, in my opinion
