Sleeping later than the majority, listening to a favorite set list, and a glass of iced tea in my slippers are just some of the working from home advantages.
But there is a dark side.
Lounging in your pajamas day after day can take its toll on your self confidence.
In fact, what you wear daily can have a real effect on how you act day in and day out.
Professor Karen Pine, author of the book Mind What You Wear, conducted a study that instructed students to wear a Superman t-shirt around campus. When asked, these students thought they were more likable, and even physically stronger than the students without "more powerful than a locomotive" t-shirts.
Several cultures believe that being dressed up every day makes them more powerful and more successful.
It isn't called a power suit for nothing.
Although we are told to never judge a book by its cover, we do it all the time, and will surely continue to do so. We are treated with more respect during an interview when dressed sharp and accordingly, and would be passed over for a job if we showed up in our ripped jeans.

We don't need to get the jewelry out of the safe and wear our power suits seven days a week, but putting on of our favorite necklace or dress might be the difference in feeling great about ourselves, and avoiding the doorbell if it rings because we are not presentable.
You are going to put something on today (I hope), it may as well make you feel great.
