What is rechilding?
Rechilding is a transactional analysis technique used in psychotherapy, guiding patients to a child-like state in order to develop more positive outlooks, experiences and relationships with others. In today’s busy, fast-paced, always-on environment, studies show that such techniques can help with depression, anxiety and self-esteem.
Rechilding in Spring 2023
Spring 2023 is a pastiche of mood-lifting prints and colours blooming with sunflower yellow, rose pink, poppy red and lime green – made for an untamed Stella woman living freely and in harmony with Mother Earth. A balanced celebration of nature and youthful confidence, the collection combines native flora and fauna with a sense of childhood naivety.
Hand-crocheted flowers on patchwork dresses, vibrant silk bubble skirts and fun ribbon-like dresses encourage a youthful innocence, playfulness and fearlessness. Inherently wearable as well as statement-making, Spring 2023 encourages Stella women to confidently wear what they want, when they want.
The benefits of rechilding and playfulness
From positive outlooks to improving our relationships with others, we believe in restoring a natural balance. According to a study by psychologists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, increasing playfulness improves our mood – making us more positive, creative and curious.
Other studies have proved that positivity and optimism can help people live 11-15% longer on average. Optimists enjoy higher levels of wellbeing, sleep better, are less stressed and even have better cardiovascular health.
