How Dopamine Dressing boosts your workout

Sometimes, the desire to work out can be "404 not found". Especially if you were faced with a very busy day. The thought of going to the gym will feel more like climbing a mountain with flip-flops to you. 

That's where dopamine dressing comes in! 

In today's blog, we are going to look at how much dopamine dressing comes into play in workouts and the influence it has on psychology and emotions.

What is Dopamine Dressing and why does it work?

It's not only the colors that matter when it comes to Dopamine dressing; the ultimate goal is to put on an outfit that will boost your self-confidence.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter in your brain that connects with joy and motivation. Wearing a favorite piece of clothing can trigger the release of dopamine, thus bringing you this unexpected yet natural mood-boost and confidence.

More importantly, you may link this positive feeling with your workout, which gives a powerful impact. Instantly, the scariest kind of gym exercise is no longer frightening, and it is now a perfect chance to show yourself and experience an awesome feeling.

How colors affect your workout

The colors you wear play a huge role in affecting your mood and energy levels. 

That’s why, knowing color psychology is a must in this case to get the most out of your workout sessions. Here are some colors you can consider : 

  • Red and Orange: These fiery hues are energizing and confidence-boosting. Perfect for high-intensity interval training (HIIT) or that kickboxing class where you need to unleash your inner power. A bold Nike crew neck sweatshirt will help you crush that calisthenics workout.

  • Yellow: When we think about yellow, it is the color which we immediately connect to optimism and cheerfulness. A pop of yellow in your workout leggings or a Nike exercise hoodie can brighten your mood and make even the toughest cardio session feel a little more cheerful.
  • Blue and Green: These calming colors promote feelings of peace and focus. Ideal for yoga, Pilates, or meditation sessions where serenity is key. Imagine flowing through your next yoga routine in a pair of calming blue leggings and a matching workout sweatshirt.

Adapt your fitness colors to the climate 

Your workouts outfits should be better tailored to the seasons of the year.  This will ignite your exercise routine and make it more energetic. 

Here are some color patterns and outfit ideas you can keep in mind :

  • Summer: Prioritize clothes made of lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton or moisture-wicking synthetics. Light, cool colors like white, pastels, or pale blues can reflect the sun and keep you feeling fresh. A breezy Nike sweatpants and a matching tank top outfit is one of the best to consider during those hot summer sessions.

  • Spring: Spring brings milder temperatures. Embrace the blossoming season with floral prints or soft pastels like pinks, dust blue, lavender etc. Opt for comfortable, mid-weight fabrics that allow for layering as the weather fluctuates. A cute pair of patterned leggings with a pre-workout boost can get you ready to conquer that spring workout.

  • Autumn: As the Libyan autumn sets in, you can incorporate richer, warmer colors like deep orange or olive green. Layer up with long-sleeved shirts or lightweight jackets as the temperature cools. A cozy Nike sweatshirt over your workout clothes for that crisp autumn run is a good option.

  • Winter : During winters, prioritize warmth and comfort. Thermal leggings, sweat-wicking fleece tops, and a cozy jacket are your best friends during these cold times of the year. Consider darker colors that absorb sunlight and radiate heat, like grey, navy blue and black. 

Fitness fashion for Hijabis

For you Libyan ladies, you can feel fabulous while covered up. Here are some tips for creating stylish and functional workout wear that respects your religious beliefs:

  • Hijabs with flair: Opt for lightweight, breathable hijabs made from sports-friendly fabrics. You can also explore different colors and patterns to add a touch of personality.

  • Tunics and Long Tees: Long tunics or t-shirts made from breathable fabrics are perfect for covering your upper body. Look for styles with practical features like side vents or mesh panels for extra ventilation. Imagine crushing a cardio session feeling cool and comfortable in a long, breathable tunic.

  • Leggings and Track Pants: Comfortable leggings or track pants are wardrobe staples for hijabi athletes. Choose high-waisted styles for added comfort and security during movement. Consider fun prints or contrasting colors to add a touch of style.

  • Matching Sets: Many sportswear brands, like Adidas, Nike and Puma, offer matching sets specifically designed for Hijabis. These outfits always feature a long-sleeved top, leggings, and a hijab, respectively, all being made from one color and pattern combination.

Accessorize for extra Dopamine points 

  • Supportive Sneakers: A good couple of sneakers goes beyond the looks, they need to make you properly equipped for your workout. For that, wear the shoes that are made for your specific needs, because those shoes will not only support your joints, but they will also help you achieve any goal with confidence

  • Water Bottle with Personality: Staying hydrated is crucial during exercise. Invest in a reusable water bottle you love, in a color or design that motivates you to keep reaching for it.

  • Gym Bag Essentials: The right bag can make all the difference. Consider a spacious Nike backpack to carry all your workout gear, or a trendy crossbody bag for the essentials. For the minimalist, a simple purse might suffice.
