Usually, fashion is the main mean of communication for women, while body and technology are the main communication tools for men. It often happens that very technological men feel attracted by very fashion ladies and very fashion ladies feel attracted by men surrounded by the last glamourous technology. In the middle you find people attracted by cultural affinity, such as food and wine or music, arts and entertainment. This second category of people usually meet in circles, by affinity, while the first category of people could meet anywhere.
In my approach “TheBodyWay” I consider fashion very important as it is the first practical “mean” that people have at disposal to take care of themselves and to take action while waiting for sport and nutrition results.
Yes, when you decide to significantly empower your image, you have to plan your strategy throughout time according to different timing and different aspects contemporary.
Certain aspect, such as deep hydration of skin and strong nails or muscles definition need months, others, such as weight loss, days of weeks, certain, such as a new hair cut and makeup, a few hours or minutes.
A good wellness coach will help you to design a real wellness plan, taking into consideration these three aspects jointly. As far as psychological and cultural aspects are concerned, they come naturally while working for the other three main fields. Reading a book or taking part to music shows or conferences is always at your disposal and what will change is mainly the selection of the event you will take part, in comparison with the past. The important thing is to prepare to an event and not to go there because you did not know what to do. The event itself should become part of your journey. Therefore, for example, selecting concerts or sport matches and combining them with shopping, tourism or special dinner with a “theme” a leitmotiv, in order to get educated. The world is full of museums, full of concerts, full of cinemas, full of shops, full of restaurants, even of conferences and fairs. The world is full of valuable oppurtinies to design your cultural growth and deepen or widen your education, therefore you should choose opportunities in relation to your goals, if possible or, if not affordable, try to live the present at its maximum. If you can only reach a commercial center, then you can exploit any chance that this place will give you, any tips, any hints. When you feel something is limited or missing, for example, you are already at a good point, as you noticed the missing element in the puzzle: you could see the puzzle! Great! By way of example, this morning I spent more than one hour inside a whole shop, a Nike store, and I discovered products that I did not know. I also discovered that the shop does not offer all the products that models wear on their advertising banners. Incredible but true: a great trademark has missing elements in the store.
The shopping list can become something very challenging: when time, money and needs are limited, then products become like athletes competing for your wallet and global economy or any industry or even small farmer strives to be part of the small budget in your wallet, no matter if you are on the beach, in a commercial centre.
In this framework, fashion can become leader as it appeals to inner needs and guarantees an immediate result, a certain feedback. If your shape is not as desired, yet, while waiting for sport and nutrition results, you can wear the right model of trousers, you can change your hair, you can make up differently and change perfume, you can buy a bracelet or a necklace, you can make a tattoo, you can make a special body and aesthetic treatment.
Moreover, fashion can make you meet interesting people while shopping and lead diplomatic conversations inspiring your next action or making you discern the audience in big cities, where people are mixed. Technology is a world apart. Technology is very specific and could even isolate people, as it offers means of connection and communication where accessories are limited to the ability of the person to be appreciated for the last trendy headphones rather than for eyes and smile. Technology itself does not guarantee to become part of a new network, while fashion, sport and nutrition aggregates more around physical senses. Technology is alienating, a world for mental people, who could even have communication difficulties, as it applies mainly to mind, needing intermediation: you speak in a chat with an avatar, not with someone you see, it is more on you than on the chat. For example, even if I am a very technological person, I could not find practical and friendly support to charge my phone or replace my screen, while I could find practical support exchanging smiles and glances or wearing glamorous clothes. IT people also prefer to be friendly to smiling people. High tech people also love courtesy, beauty, tastes, money. The nerd living in the flat above mine, for example, closed the relationship with me when I did not give him the “body stimulation” he expected: being both part of the same international community of design, blog, software, was not enough to gurantee a trustful and valuable relationship.
Back to fashion, then, it is obvious that fashion has a strong soothing effect on nerves, senses stimulation can really relax your mind and let it think laterally opening the perception of the self and leading to the right direction. When the sedating effect finishes, for example when everybody has seen your fresh haircut or new dress, then you go back to the body you have, to your daily meal and to your daily administration. For these reasons, fashion is a real leverage to be used with the right timing. Fashion is quick: a glance, a move can change your day.
I think I lost many fashion chances in my life: I found myself in the right place at the wrong time or I was dressed in the right way in the wrong time and so on.
In fact I am not a fashion blogger, but, as artist and fitness model, I can be a personal shopper: someone that could add value and render great services with the right timing and inputs.
