It’s the new year, and that means resolutions and change are on everyone’s mind. You might be looking at your closet thinking “ugh, how did this happen”. If that’s where you are, there’s no better time to do something about it.
Here’s the thing: I love activewear. Obviously–it’s why I write this blog. Like most people, I think new stuff can be pretty fun. More to the point, activewear is an awesome tool to help you feel confident and motivate you toward healthier habits. That said, as with anything, you can definitely have too much of a good thing.
As long as activewear makes your life better and brings you joy, knock yourself out. But when stress and guilt over your shopping habit or your collection size start to enter the equation, it’s important to take a step back and reassess.
With this series, I want to spend a little more time on the other side of the spandex habit. If you’ve taken things a little too far (and most of us probably have at some point), I hope this series can be a way to help you regain control. And even if you’re feeling mostly ok about things and just want to be a little bit more proactive about editing your closet, I hope you’ll find the series helpful, too.
Starting this week, I’ll be publishing 1-2 new posts each week for the month of January that will walk you through the process of refining and refreshing your closet. Most (though not all) of this series will be focused on guiding you through the selling process. The resale market is a surprisingly powerful tool that you can really use to your advantage. Without reselling, I know I would have a lot less activewear I like and a lot more guilt about it. But, I also know that it can be pretty intimidating to navigate that space, so I hope this series will take away some of the intimidation there.
I’m aiming to structure the series so that you’ll have a few days to work through each stage (assignments, sort of) before a new one comes up, but of course you can work through it at any pace.
Stay tuned for the first post, which will be all about how to start the process of sorting through your closet.
