Have you ever rocked your yoga pants, workout tank and Nike running shoes just to do some errands? If so, you may be tapping into a phenomenon called “enclothed cognition,” which is a term used to describe the “systematic influence that clothes have on the wearer’s psychological processes.” In other terms, wearing your activewear, for non–active tasks, can influence your state–of–mind in such a way that you actually want to work out. Good news, if you’ve been dying to go on a spending binge at Lululemon recently.
With so many athletic–wear brands popping up, you don’t have to spend your whole paycheck on fitness fashion. Try swapping out your old high school tee or baggy sweats for one of these more flattering, sporty pieces and you might find yourself looking forward to hitting the gym!
