Mental Trick-

that might work for you.

The worst choice I made during the current period of limited modified house arrest was to stop dressing for work. I’ve fallen into the habit of wearing a tee shirt, usually a metal band tee shirt, and jeans without shoes while working from home.

Sartorial Markers.

(I can’t test it myself, my work uniform *IS* jeans and a t-shirt, Iowa never went into lockdown, and Momming is an essential activity anyways.)

    I do pants and shirt, not just shirt. If I did it all the time, it would lose the psychological effect, and the things that irritate me about my formal garb would irritate me all the time.
