Many people take their shirts for granted and think they have no influence on health. But contrary to popular belief, your shirts can have a major impact on your physical health. The philosopher Nietzsche pointed out in Ecce Homo that location, climate, nutrition, and leisure activity were all important for the mind and body, more so than most people realize. But along with this, I add the notion that your shirt is equally important. If you wear an improper shirt it can ruin your whole day. It can throw you into another mental zone and ultimately affect your health, your physical health. No one should simply wear a t-shirt in the Arctic, for example. And in Florida in the summer it would be inappropriate to wear a long-sleeved flannel shirt with a fur hood. These examples are extremes, I know. But the concept of the right shirt deserves much more attention. I intend to write more about this in the future in this blog.
