Music has been known to affect our moods. Whether you are listening to a song and it brings back fond memories from the past, or you are listening to something that mellows you out or pumps you up- music has the power to transform your frame of mind in an instant.
Considering the power of music, it's a good idea to plug in your iPod the next time you hit the gym in order to have the sounds that inspire you at your fingertips. This gives you the ability to control your state of mind and make your workout less of a chore and more of an enjoyable experience. An added benefit is that if you are in a happy state of mind, you are more apt to spend a longer duration on that dreaded treadmill!
Listening to a genre that invigorates you can boost your energy, concentration and strength while you are working out. It only makes sense to have some stimulating tunes playing to keep your brain motivated, so invest in an iPod if you haven't already. It also comes in handy for certain dreaded activities such as grocery shopping and boring dinner parties.
