I adore proper pajamas. Proper pajamas evoke such a happy, playful, light-spirited energy. Here are my top five reasons to wear proper pajamas:
#1 Pajamas Bring Bedtime Nostalgia
Pajamas are part of a long forgotten bedtime ritual that helps us formally transition from day into evening. Putting on pajamas — whether after dinner or sometime later —shifts our energy from effort to ease.
#2 Pajamas Elevate Sleep
What you wear to bed matters. Throwing on old, worn out duds may feel comfortable but it actually perpetuates feelings of exhaustion and defeatism — that there aren’t enough hours in a day and you’re just trying to survive it all. Wearing proper pajamas to bed sends you to sleep in an elevated state, signaling to your body that you recognize nighttime for the restorative gift that it is. You will wake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
#3 Pajamas Make for Elegant Mornings
Just as proper pajamas send you off to slumber in a sweet state of ease, when you wake wearing them you feel ready to welcome the morning with positivity and vigor. Pajamas make the early morning a lovely extension of time where there is still a veil keeping you separate from the demands of the world, even if just for a bit.
#4 Pajamas Transform Lethargic to Light-Spirited
Whether you’re wearing pajamas in the evening or the morning, unlike a worn t-shirt and shorts or old leggings or sweats, proper pajamas are a playful type of clothing so they automatically invoke a light-spirited state. Old duds will cover you in a lethargic vibration. Well-fitting pajamas will imbue you with a cheerful disposition.
#5 Pajamas Stir Holiday Magic
Whenever there’s a holiday around the corner I use it as an excuse to buy festive pajamas. Be it Valentine’s Day, Halloween, or Christmas — you’ll find me in jovial holiday pjs. Holiday pajamas stir magic and make for a fun and stylish expression of the spirit of the season.
