“Getting into activewear can launch you into exercise mode because clothing primes the brain to expect the forthcoming activity”, says Karen J. Pine, professor of psychology at the University of Hertfordshire and author of Mind What You Wear: The Psychology of Fashion.
The news gets even better: Your workout wardrobe can do more than just motivate you to move—it can also physically lead you to be more aware of your body, says Joshua Ian Davis, Ph.D., Director of Research at The NeuroLeadership Institute.
“Formfitting workout clothes make you feel like your muscles are stronger,” he says. “If clothes are comfortable, you’ll have a greater sense of fluency about your movement.”
That means what you wear to the gym can actually affect your performance. In one study found that when people wore a Superman t-shirt, they estimated themselves to be physically stronger than people who wore normal clothing, showing that we internalize characteristics associated with our attire.
According to the American Diabetes Association the affect physical activity has on your blood glucose will vary depending on how long you are active and many other factors. Physical activity can lower your blood glucose up to 24 hours or more after your work out by making your body more sensitive to insulin.
You should become familiar with how your blood glucose responds to exercise. Checking your blood glucose level frequently before and after exercise can help you see the benefits of activity. You also can use the results of your blood glucose checks to see how your body to reacts to different activities. Understanding these patterns can help you prevent your blood glucose from going too high or too low.
