Why The Fash Life?

 “Staying stuck in your pajamas day after day sets your mood. It literally keeps you stuck ”

Jennifer Musselman (Psychotherapist)

So the world has flipped upside down and suddenly we're all struggling to adjust to this "new normal." Maybe it's becoming hard to see the point of getting out of your pajamas or running a comb through your hair. But what if the act of getting dressed and practicing self-care is part of what helps us remain healthy? We talk so much about our physical health during this pandemic, but our mental and emotional wellbeing is also a part of what constitutes our "health." We should never neglect it, and now is the time more than ever to shine a light on it. Clinical psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals advise us that we should get dressed everyday in order to maintain our mental health during the Covid-19 quarantine, because a simple step towards maintaining mental and emotional health is to practice self-care. How does one do that? That's what we're turning to you for.

The Fash Life Series was inspired by the idea of how fashion, beauty, wellness, creativity and humor are all important factors that bring positivity and happiness into our lives. During these difficult times, we want to do our part by bringing joy and laughter to your screens, while also helping to spread awareness on mental health and inspiring others to practice self-care and wellness during this global pandemic. We can all do our part to make a difference during this crisis, so the Fash Life team invites you to join us in our #FashLifeAtHomeChallenge.

“An interest in fashion and appearance is a sign of mental health. Psychiatrists are able to infer changes in mood from changes in their patients' clothing.” – Raphael Bonelli (Researcher on Neuropsychiatry)

For those of you who don’t want to participate by posting on social media or sharing a photo or video, you can always show your support by donating to DBSA here.

Finally, don't forget to check in with friends, colleagues, neighbors and loved ones -- not just about how they're doing physically, but how they're coping emotionally and mentally. For those who are struggling more than usual, there are avenues to seek free professional help during this crisis -- this DBSA resource list is just a start (more resources below). Remember: you are not alone, so please reach out to someone. We may be separated, but we are all in this together.
