Change Your Clothes, Change Your Mood
By: Jackie Clark
When mesothelioma cancer is pulling you down into a well of despair and when mesothelioma oncologists are only invested in treating your physical problems, it is time to see what you can do when you want and need an emotional lift. Being strong is about more than just what you can lift, and beauty is more than just what you were born with. Fashion is something that can make a huge difference in how you feel and how you act on a day to day basis, so consider what type of fashion choices will leave you feeling empowered and mighty!
When you are feeling rough, the last thing that you want is to be faced with a number of fashion choices that you need to make. Even a fairly pared down closet can feel a little overwhelming, so let’s take it down a notch. Sit down and make a list of all the outfits that you want to wear over the next few days. Think about what you are going to be doing and what kind of lifestyle you lead. Having a list outfits prepared in front of you can make a huge difference to the effect you can make. For example, you don’t have to scramble around in the morning, and you will also find that it allows you to come up with outfits that you love!
Choose clothing that leaves you feeling energized and upbeat. For example, what colors make you smile? Whether you are someone who loves a sunny yellow or a stormy purple, you will discover that the right color can brighten up your day immensely. Think about where you are in your life and think about the little things that can help you. The colors that you choose are colors that you choose for a reason. Whether these colors are the ones that look great on you or the colors are the ones that simply have wonderful associations for you, you will find that there are definitely reasons to wear them.
Remember to concentrate on good fit as well. If you are undergoing mesothelioma treatment, you want clothes that feel great on you. That means that you should avoid anything that feels too tight. On the other hand, this does not mean that you should avoid things that are well fitted. There are so many great clothes out there, and all you have to do is find the ones that fit you well. The better an outfit fits you,
the more likely it is that you are going to like it. Remember that a small amount of alteration, which you either make yourself or that you ask someone else to make, can help your clothes fit much more effectively.
Are you someone who has had enough of being seen as tired and ill all the time? Think about how you want to present yourself and what you can do to create a wonderful look for yourself. It takes a little bit of time and less money than you might believe, but the effects can be amazing!
