The Science of Colors
by Marylin Salgado
What you wear in the morning to get going or in the afternoon to go to the gym after work, will affect your workout. We all want to wear something comfortable, but what about the colors? Studies show that colors can affect our moods, feelings and emotions. There is an array of articles on the web on the psychology of colors; even how long it takes for your brain to absorb certain colors to allow them to affect your mood or emotion.
For example, who would want to walk into an operating room painted in red? The patient’s anxiety would increase immediately. Instead operating rooms are painted in light green to keep the patient relaxed and ease the anxiety when they are being prepped for the procedure.
Going to the gym is no different. Given, you’re not having your appendix removed; although some ab workouts may feel that way. Either way, you will want to wear colors that are in and outside of your comfort zone. My favorite colors used to be blue, gray, and black. Well, depending on the shade, blue can either be a relaxing or invigorating color. But gray and black IS gray and black. No matter what the shade, those colors don’t exactly scream excitement. So, I had to get out of my comfort zone and buy new colors, such as purple, pink, yellow and even orange.
And of course, add your own taste of music. Some gym music is not going to meet a demanding workout. I personally like dance music and reggaeton.
