Like most days, I didn't get dressed and sat around in my PJ's all day for the sake of comfort.
I was amidst a productivity session of putting out some great writing when my fiancée came home from a work meeting.
She took one look at me and said, "You need to put on real clothes."
There were no distractions, no commutes, and no time wasted dressing myself up to go out in public. Instead, I sat at my home and got shit done!
While working from home can be wonderful, it can also be a vicious cycle to get into.
One day you don't get dressed, and then the next, and then the next. Soon you are a smelly, hairy dude that no woman wants to touch.
My fiancée acts as my censor for when things are going too far, but not every guy is lucky enough to have a woman who will tell him when he needs to clean the hell up.
Instead, you need to become your own censor.
A button-up does not have the same flow as a t-shirt.
Lets be real, shaving sucks.
But have some decency and clean yourself up every once in a while.
You partner will appreciate it if you do, and if you’re single then it will increase your chances of actually finding a partner.
Make it a habit of visiting this coffee shop once per week. This small ritual will force you to get out of the house and clean yourself up.
Instead of having your partner coming home to you in pajama pants, try getting dressed up, clean shaven and putting on some nice cologne.
It’s an unexpected surprise and your partner will appreciate it.
I get it, you want to be comfortable. Be comfortable and enjoy it. But don't let the habit go on for too long.
Get yourself dressed up every now and then and get out of the house. Your will be better off because of it.
