In our Style Journey it is important to focus on mental change or ‘Style for the Brain’ as I am calling it. Whether we know it or not we have a library of thoughts, opinions, rules even slogans running the Style game through our head on a daily basis. “If only I looked like that”. “If only I had those clothes”. “I need to dress that way”. “Only people like that are pretty or stylish” “I have to look like that to be stylish”. “How do I make Style work for me”. “How can I pack more efficiently”. Etc
In this series ‘Style for the Brain’ we will address these thoughts and more. I have created this series so you can get to know the Style Game that your brain is running and either confront it and change those thoughts or have help shaping them.
My first recommendation is the book “Healthy is the New Skinny”. I know it sounds like a weight loss book but it is so much more. Former plus size model, Katie Wilcox, wrote “Healthy is the New Skinny” to delve deep into how we look at ourselves, whose standards we hold ourselves to and how we interpret who we are and our worth physically. There were so MANY good thoughts in this book. (disclaimer I do not hold to everything in the book)
There were two things that stuck out to me and I wanted to share those thoughts here. First, Katie asks the question-who gets to define beauty and why do we let them? Who says ‘They’ are right? For example why is being thin equated with beauty? Check out “Healthy is the New Skinny” and start working on the Style thoughts that run thru your brain. You can find “Healthy is the New Skinny” (paid link) here
Keep on this journey to Style that is You-and the realization that you, as you are, have value.
