Dopamine Dressing: Dressing for your mood

If you feel good in it...WEAR IT!!

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and motivation. When you have low levels of dopamine, you may feel depressed or anxious. When you have high levels of dopamine, you may feel happy or excited.


It's no secret that what we wear can affect our mood. Just think about how you feel when you're all dressed up for a night out versus how you feel in your comfiest pair of sweatpants. Our clothes can definitely influence how we're feeling, and that's why dressing for your mood is so important, especially for your mental health.


It's not just your imagination - dressing up really can make you feel better about yourself. And there's science to back it up.


Researchers have found that when we wear clothes that we perceive to be stylish, we actually feel more confident and capable. In one study, participants who were asked to wear formal clothing for a job interview felt more powerful than those who wore casual clothing.


When you're feeling down, it can be tempting to just stay in your PJs all day and not face the world. But trust us, getting dressed and looking good can actually help improve your mood. It might seem like a small thing, but putting on something that makes you feel good about yourself can really make a difference in how you're feeling.


So next time you're feeling low, try getting dressed up and see if it doesn't help improve your mood. You might be surprised at how much of a difference it makes!
