When you’re working hard to achieve your dream body, it’s likely that your closet will become confusing and disorganised as it reflects your progress. Trying to find that perfect dress among dozens of baggy shirts or tight pants that you soon hope to fit into can make getting dressed for work particularly difficult. Research has shown that a wardrobe filled with loose and baggy clothing can also take its toll on your self-esteem, causing you to lose motivation
It’s time to start making some changes to your closet to help you achieve your goals. Here are some of our pro tips and tricks;
Clear your schedule for the day
Cleaning out your closet can be time consuming, so keep a whole day free so that you can go at your own pace and even have fun while doing it!
Throw out the “fat” clothes
It’s time to be confident. Throw away the baggy, loose fitting clothes and trust in yourself. Set yourself up success, not failure.
Throw out the aspirational clothes
That dress that’s four dress sizes smaller? It’s time to throw it away. Storing clothes that are too small cause people to feel disheartened that they are no longer as small as they were.
Only keep the clothes that fit you.
Remember, you don’t have to fit the clothes, the clothes have to fit you. Your closet should support you and your goals leaving you excited to pick out what you’re going to wear for the day.
Take some photos
As you come across those baggy jeans, put them on and take a quick snap to see how far you’ve come! Sharing them with close friends and family can also be a great way to help you feel great about yourself!
Take a break
Cleaning out your closet can be a tiring and emotional process, so stopping every hour or so and going for a walk, listening to some music, or visiting a friend will help you to relax and recover.
Clearing out your closet is an important step in achieving your body goals. Making sure your closet is a welcoming, supportive place will inspire a positive attitude and heighten your motivation.
