Now that the weather is warming up, it’s natural to want to look your best and give your fitness and appearance a boost so you can enjoy the summer. But if you’ve been off the workout wagon for a while it can throw up one important question- what do I wear? When you have an interest in fashion you will of course still want to look good in what you have on, but feeling happy and confident in your clothes can also give you a boost and actually make you more inclined to get that workout in. Here are a few exercise clothing essentials to add to your wardrobe.
For many people the idea of going to the gym is terrifying. We’re unhappy with our bodies, we know our fitness levels aren’t what they should be, and we worry about what other people will think. We don’t want to be on machines or lifting weight next to super fit gym bunnies who make us feel worse than we already do and so we just don’t go.
December and January can be a huge time of reflection. We make some decision on resolutions we might want to try in the year ahead. Perhaps make some goals or promises to ourselves to make some positive changes. Or simply we choose not to do things that have started to make us feel unhappy or low. Confidence is a funny thing. We can feel at our lowest when we start to put too many demands on our time and how we feel. However, often making simple lifestyle changes or placing our focus in the right way can help to boost confidence as well as feeling good in other ways. So I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can do it.
Humans have a tendency to want to group together. We want to be part of the tribe, accepted by society – it’s ingrained in us from the days when strength in numbers meant the difference between survival and the alternative option. True nonconformists – who genuinely have no care for what others think of them – are incredibly rare.
We tend to think about our chosen fashion styles as reflective of our inner selves. Our mood and our confidence can all be communicated to others using the fashion styles we choose to wear. While it’s important to bear this in mind, the link between style and mood isn’t always quite as simple as this.
