The new year often reminds us how good it feels to feel our best when we are comfortable in our physical skin, and each of us knows if we are doing enough to take care of our bodies regarding exercise.
Having workout clothing which enables us to do what we want to do, as well as feel confident whether in a Zoom class or walking or running outside helps unconsciously more than we might realize.
As the new year began, I took an evening to take advantage of sales to spruce up my workout wardrobe for my weekly yoga practice (on Zoom with a local instructor). Three brands I trust when it comes to quality and fit are Lululemon, Sweaty Betty (Brits will know this brand no doubt!) and Athleta. I scooped up this hooded compression jacket in chambray as well as a couple of vests/tanks from Athleta. Not only will yoga look and feel a bit nicer but my walks as well when the months warm up.
But we cannot forget after our workouts. We are tired, yet feel great, exhilarated and more clear minded perhaps. We’ve taken a shower or bath, and now, we may just be able to unwind and relax; however, we want to look and feel our best, so I have shopped an après workout for you as well with one of the new trends much talked about recently: the half zip sweater. Available in cashmere and merino wool in beautiful, classic colors, wear with a slim pant and a pair of flats, and you will begin to melt into the rest of the evening.
