Have you ever had people judge you based on your appearance? Or have you ever judged someone based on what they were wearing?
Best Travel Irons? Read this article
It’s normal, we all do it from time to time without even realizing it ourselves. So you need to make sure you look your best when you are on the road, because depending on how you come across to other people, how you are going to be treated will be according to what you are wearing most of the time.
Don’t believe me? Wear really dirty clothes that are worn out and try going to shops, cafes, and just spend your day as you usually would. Now do the same exact thing the next day with a nice fitting suit while being well-groomed.
You will notice a big difference in how people respond towards you. It’s something we have to accept about society and live with, so why not make things work for you instead of fighting against it.
Anyways, now that you know the importance of presentation to other people, here are reasons why you should iron your clothes even when you traveling abroad.
DEVELOPING GOOD HABITS
There is a reason why miliary men and women are required to make their bed neatly. It develops good habits and the value of orderliness. If you are not clean and orderly your life is not going to be either.
So just making a small change in your behaviour, you could perhaps affect the things around your life. We are not necessarily who we think we are, but we are what we do. If you repeat good habits over and over again, good things will come out of your good habits.
STRESS REDUCING & CALMING
Even though I personally can pay someone to do cleaning, sometimes I prefer to do the dishes and clean the house myself. In a way, it is therapeutic and calming.
There is an odd satisfaction in completing something and making it look better. When you are ironing your shirt it allows you the time of the day to meditate and just calm your mind. It’s a simple action. All you are doing is ironing your shirt, there are not deep analysis or decision making that is involved with it. Like exercising, it is stress-reducing and calming.
Especially, when you are traveling your schedule and habits can go out of whack, so it helps you stay a bit centered and focused.
PEOPLE TREAT YOU BETTER
As I stated earlier, when your shirt is clean and wrinkle-free, people will have a different opinion of you. If you are going for a business interview or on a date, you better be dressed for the occasion and looking sharp.
Dirty unkempt clothes signal to people that you are lazy or that you are a bum, whereas being groomed shows that you take care of yourself and responsible. We may not necessarily think about it that much on a conscious level, however, just remember that people will have certain first impressions and opinions of you that are gut level and reactionary.
GIVES TIME TO THINK
Ironing your clothes out of your busy travel schedule can be a great time for you to think clearly. It is during times of rest, clarity and focus actually comes.
Thomas Edison, Eureka, Newton,etc all had brilliant ideas when they were doing mundane things. Ironing might be a mundane task, but it gives you the space to reflect on your life, what is happening around you, and perhaps you just might solve on of the problems you’ve been trying to deal with for a long time.
