Have you ever put on a beautiful dress before going out and felt 100%? Felt as if you're beautiful, capable and it instantly improves your confidence? Or how about wearing a power suit for that business meeting, and you walk into the room almost instantly better at negotiating or discussing the important agenda items?
Without us realising, what we wear can get us in the 'environment mood' of what we are about to undertake, and even sets the tone for what we are doing.
So let's apply this to being more active, fitter, healthier and on top of our exercise habits. Wearing activewear WILL make you more active throughout your day for a variety of reasons. Let's look at some of the biggest reasons why.
YOU ARE WEARING CLOTHES THAT ENABLE MORE ACTIVITY
Nothing is worse than trying to go for a high intensity walk in flip-flops, or trying to do squats in jeans. It is uncomfortable and the whole time you are thinking about stopping. So, wearing activewear that feels great to be active in will enable more exercise and encourage you to workout.
ACTIVEWEAR WILL SET THE TONE FOR YOUR DAY
If the first thing you do in your day is put on workout leggings and a sports bra, you can almost guarantee that you're subconsciously setting yourself up for exercise or a workout at some point. Try it - see if you can wear workout clothes all day and not actually be active. The tone has been set and you will feel the desire to do something good for your body.
GOOD QUALITY ACTIVEWEAR IS COMFORTABLE AND LOOKS GOOD, WHICH CAN IMPROVE CONFIDENCE
Confidence encourages taking care of your body, mind and soul - so when you are wearing good quality activewear that is comfortable and you look good in, it will increase your self-confidence and desire to then look after yourself physically. Besides, let's face it - when you look great in activewear, you want to get out there and show it off!
WEARING ACTIVEWEAR WILL MAKE YOU MORE MINDFUL ABOUT YOUR CHOICES
The same way that weighing yourself in the morning can make you more mindful of eating healthy foods for the rest of the day, wearing activewear that sets the tone for your daily activities can make you more mindful about whether you just sit around on the couch or take the dog for a walk.
So there you have it - a few reasons why wearing activewear will lead to you being more active and making healthier choices day-to-day.
