Do you have a uniform?
For some people it’s as simple as a white t-shirt and jeans, or maybe a long skirt and sweater.
The Del Val last week mentioned an article about a woman who had come up with her own uniform, which she wears to work every day. She has some great points; her thoughts on not having to fuss in the mornings or expend brain power on making these menial decisions is persuasive, but I’m not sure I would ever enforce a uniform upon myself.
Maybe it’s because I had to wear a school uniform growing up, but I love having a job that doesn’t require a suit or that I wear the same thing day in and day out. I understand that it’s important in some roles to have one, but making that choice each morning allows me some kind of expression — and I love to dress for my mood. I actually find it can help switch on the brain, rather than waste energy. But maybe that’s just me?
What do you think? Do you wear a uniform? Do you think it makes more sense, to simplify your life in this small way?
