While we are social distancing and not attending large dress up parties for Halloween, we should still take the opportunity to transform into something new for a day.
Halloween has ancient roots. The human need to perform and become different characters has deep value for our mental health. Through dressing up and disguising our everyday identity we gain a different perspective; for a day we can be relieved from the gaze of strangers and personal judgements. It’s a great opportunity to give your identity a break and enter a new one.
So go wild! Do your best makeup and costume! Imagine and explore. And make sure you have a good double cleanser to turn back into yourself!
