At a time when we’re all battling with extra stresses and strains, taking the hassle out of everyday tasks can have surprising benefits. Simplifying the daily routine, reducing decision making can all help ensure we don’t become overwhelmed by the length of our ‘to do list’.
Uniform wearing can be a positive part of that process, whether it’s deciding to provide your staff with a corporate collection or organising yourself a ‘working from home’ wardrobe. Mark Zuckerberg famously wears the same grey t-shirt & jeans combo to work every day, because he believes that it enables him to focus his energies elsewhere, on more important decision making. That may be extreme, but somehow the beginning of each day does feel simplified when our clothes are prepped & ready to go. It’s a relief to know that you don’t have to come home, wash, dry & iron your uniform for the next day because you’re trying to do the right thing in the current climate, but you also need to feed the family, walk the dog, supervise homework etc etc
So uniform selection matters. Picking styles that are easy care can make a difference. Allocating your staff enough garments for their working week will help ease their stress at the end of the day. Choosing yourself a ‘wfh’ wardrobe and having it ready for the week can help your morning run a bit more smoothly.
I’m a firm believer in the power of just putting one foot in front of the other, making a success of the small things whether that’s feeding the kids their favourite tea and having a happy bedtime or getting your clothes ready so that you start the day looking the part & feeling the part, these small building blocks can add up to a day that you can look back on with a sense of satisfaction & achievement. Revel in the small wins. Take a look at our Edition ladieswear range, pick a stylish uniform that’s also easy care and knock one thing off that to do list.
