Welcome to Who What Wear UK's first-ever Wellness Week. With that back-to-school feeling in the air, we thought what better time to hit reset on the health and happiness of yourself and your wardrobe? From uplifting outfits to savvy ways to update your look to the psychology of our purchasing habits to the pyjamas that will help you get some extra z's, check back all week for a daily boost of style success.

My neighbour is a life coach, and recently we were catching up after walking our dogs. When I ducked into my wardrobe to grab a jacket, he took a hard look at my liberal approach to organisation: leather and denim stacked haphazardly, an odd kimono strewn with arms akimbo on a pile of washing, shoes everywhere. Aghast, he asked, “Is it always like this?” To my naive “Like what?” retort, he offered, “Oh honey, this is a root chakra problem.”

Could one’s personal space subconsciously influence your mood? I consulted reiki master (and my sister) Jenni Finley to catch up on all things root chakra related. As an energy healer, she emphasised the power of setting subconscious cues throughout a room as reminders of how to feel and think.

“Every time you look around a space, you get subconscious messages,” she explained. Everything on the planet needs to be replenished and cleared in some way. The ocean is continually withdrawing and reshaping itself. All things in nature reach an apex, experience birth, death, and renewal. That’s the way energy is. Sometimes it needs to be cleared and released.” Keep scrolling for her must-haves for generating positive energy and creating a sacred space within the home.
