Rough Day {Sweat It Out}



I think we can all agree that for the majority of us, working out is a drudgery. Despite good intentions and set goals, the motivation just isn't there after dealing with the hectic rat race schedule that this life entangles us with. Sometimes, just the basic simple act of getting started usually is the hardest part. I personally find the trick is to put on music with the right kind of beat that has me energized and going in no time. This works whether you have the luxury of working at home or have to go to an office job. The key is to always plan ahead by putting your headset in your work bag and instead of sitting the whole hour for your lunch break, why not try using 15 or 20 minutes out of that hour to do some brisk walking around outside in the fresh air. Imagine the benefit of that - feeling more alert after lunch instead of the sluggish/sleepy feeling that inevitably overtakes you as soon as you get back to your desk after that noon break. I'm always amazed of the power music has to uplift ones spirits no matter how awful you may feel - provided of course, you're listening to the right type of music. The ideal tunes would be those that uplift the heart, excite the soul and get the body moving. So go ahead, put on some happy tunes. Not sure what to put on?
