Do you get dressed if you are just staying home all day? - November 23rd 2014, 05:51 PM

Do you bother getting dressed or do you just stay in your PJ's? I remember my old therapist telling me to get dressed every-day even if I'm not going anywhere. I started doing it for a bit but I couldn't see the point. I was just dirtying more clothes and the only people who saw me were my parents :|

Do you get dressed?

I voted for sometimes. Sometimes I'll stay in pj's all day if I know for sure that I'm not going anywhere, and I won't put makeup on unless I'm going out either. Depending on how I'm feeling, though, I sometimes also wear comfortable clothes - like sweatpants and a t-shirt even if I'm not going anywhere.

No way. I enjoy my laziness. However, I can see why that might help some people.

Sometimes. I generally feel horribly about myself for the majority of the day, but it depends. Bed in my room is always ready for me to sleep, so there are times when I don't bother changing at all.

Sometimes. Today and yesterday I was at home all day but I still got dressed. Granted today, I got into trackies and a hoodie but I would have still gone out wearing that if I needed to go somewhere. There are other times where I will just stay in my jammies all day long.

This is a tricky one for me.

I voted always, because I do always get dressed, I never stay in pyjamas. BUT I always chuck on the same hoodie and tracksuit bottoms, which I won’t even answer the door when I wear them, let alone go out in them, since they are very scruffy, so even though I’m dressed, I might as well just be wearing pyjamas.

Nahhhh, there's no point. I only get dressed if I'm not going out if people are coming over, and even then not all the time.

I voted for "sometimes." However, it's been a long time since I've gone a whole day without leaving the house, even if I just go to the store. So I wind up getting dressed each day.

When I know I am going to be home for a while, I throw on a t-shirt and yoga pants to be comfortable, which happen to be my pj's as well.

There's rarely a day where I stay home all day, but pretty much if I'm home I'll take off my jeans and put PJ pants on since it's much comfier.

I always get changed from my PJ's into something according to the weather such as shorts/t-shirt and sweat pants/long-sleeve shirt/jumper/jacket.
Just a habit I got into.

I voted sometimes because usually I will get out of bed and get dressed. However, I also will have lazy days where I stay in pyjamas or sweat pants all day but there isn't many days where I stay home for an entire day without going out.

Re: Do you get dressed if you are just staying home all day? - November 24th 2014, 06:47 AM

I stay in PJs only in these cases... when I stay at home: condition A) It is winter and condition B) I'm sick.

For the past two days, I stayed at home all day. It wasn't winter but I was sick, thus I stayed in sleepwear.
Despite the fact I do change shirts 2-5 times a day. I need to. No room for laziness there.

Does it feel entirely different when I change into regular clothes at all? Yes. I feel completely different, clean perhaps, not as stressed.
But if it's one of those days when I need to rest or I'm not feeling stable enough, not in the right mind state, need everything warm and cozy to isolate myself from everything and everyone, fresh clothes definitely feel like an obstacle to that. I'd feel bad in them compared to being in PJs.

Re: Do you get dressed if you are just staying home all day? - November 24th 2014, 06:53 AM

Usually. When I'm on campus there are other people in the house so I'd feel too awkward staying in my pjs all day, and at home I usually go outside at some point (even if it's just into the yard to play with the cats or get the mail or something) so I put clothes on then. Sometimes I'll have days where I know I'm not going outside and will just be lying in bed or hanging out alone all day, and then I won't bother, but that doesn't happen often.

Re: Do you get dressed if you are just staying home all day? - November 24th 2014, 10:10 AM

I voted always (except on weekends) because I am kind off weird and just take off from my house at any minute. So it's easier if I am dressed. Also, I tutor kids (who come home to learn) so it isn't really nice to stay in PJs (though I wish I could) I'm usually in shorts/jeans and t-shirts/shirts the whole day. (with eye liner, sorry, I'm obsessed with that)

It depends. If I know getting dressed will make me feel a bit better, then I will. Though I sleep in jeans and stuff, so technically I'm already dressed and just have to change my shirt. I don't really own pajamas.

I was laid off for a couple months before and I started to get down on myself for having so much free time. I believe success is built by momentum can't do much sitting around.

So I voted always.

I sometimes get dressed even when I don't have anything to do that day. It really depends on what I have to do that day.

Most of the time, though I just put on lounge pants and old T-shirts. Old sweats or shorts, nothing I could go out wearing. They're just as comfy as my PJ's and I'm not really dirtying clothes I'm going to need for going out. Problem solved.

Sometimes I'll get dressed when I know I'll be home all day if I feel like it or if occasionally if I need to get some things done at home because being dressed can seem to give me more energy sometimes, if that makes any since. But most of the time I don't because most of the time I don't like clothes in general and would prefer not to wear them.

I voted sometimes since a lot of times, I tend to go out when I don't expect to and it takes me forever to get dressed.

I voted always because I always get dressed, even if I don't go anywhere and just do things around the house. I hate being in pajamas all day - I feel so scummy. I'm a lot more productive when I'm dressed. I usually won't get into my super nice clothes if I'm not going anywhere, but at least a T-Shirt and jeans. There was a time when I would stay in my pajamas or comfy clothes for most of the day, and I ended up feeling more depressed because of it.
