The Ultimate Playlist for Your Workouts
As a teacher and someone with a lifelong interest in health and wellness, I look for routines that are planned and spontaneous. The flow and energy of working out, moving, and being active needs to vary to keep interest and move us faster or slower. It’s such a significant element, the power of music, energy, and inspiration. As E.Y. Harburg quiped, “Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.”
Fitness is not only about working out. There is a symbiosis of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. There needs to be time that is honored for each, time to escape, time to work out the muscles, thoughts in our heads, time to take care of ourselves.
Fitness and health is not something everyone is always gung ho about. Yet, music enables us to get moving, get lost in the process, tune out distractions, and get us in tune with warming-up, stretching, lifting, hiking, dancing, and cooling down. The feelings, thoughts, and playfulness of music ramp up our energy.
The playlist above includes a great mix of warm-up, high energy, cool down songs. A playlist that will get you powered up and keep you moving.
