I’ve said many times over the years (wow, we’ve been blogging for years!), that I’m a self-confessed music junkie. And although it’s good once and a while to walk mindfully and silently through a sunlit forest on a cool summer morning, most of the time I like tunes blasting in my ears.
Music really helps me get in the mood — especially when the mood doesn’t get me. Even after decades of listening to music day in and day out, it amazes me how the same song can lift my spirits, deliver instant energy and shoot straight through to my soul.
As of late, I’ve been listening to tracks I downloaded almost a year ago, and I’m ready to hit itunes and shake up my playlist a little. Instead of asking for suggestions, I thought it might be fun to ask all of you to contribute your favorite workout tunes — including Livin’ La Vida Loca at least one guilty pleasure, so I can create the workout cd of my dreams!
Some of my workout fav’s: You Get What You Give – New Radicals , Love Shack – B52’s, Anything by Earth, Wind & Fire!

Tip: Start listening to music before you get ready to go to the gym, take a walk, or whip on your snow-shoes. You’ll get in the mood well before your activity actually begins.
