I wouldn't recommend slow sad music as it can slow you down and make you feel less able to exercise.
For you, I would recommend it be music that relaxes you. For some people, classical piano or orchestral music, but for others this would put them on edge.
Personally, I love relaxing and exercising to chilled out Lo-fi electro vibes, but sometimes I switch it up with other choices depending on my mood.
You may love up beat pop hits to find your happy place, or bring back nostalgic memories with heavier rock from your teen years. Perhaps some crooner or smooth jazz will hit the spot.
Trust your ear and keep moving the musical dial with your tastes and moods.
Point is, great art ties us together in unity of purpose.
- Any recommendations for easy and short exercises in the morning?
- How do you get out of bed when you’re so tired?
- Do you do the same exercise routine every day or do you mix it up?
- How quickly am I supposed to move from the minimum exercise to something more difficult? Is it okay if I’m still not inspired/motivated to step up my game after a month?
- Are you hydrated?
- What do you do when you just don’t feel like working out/exercising?
- What is your cue? What is your reward?
- What’s the appropriate amount of time to work out after eating?
- Is it better to do light exercise for 90 minutes, or heavy exercise for 30 minutes? The goal is mostly weight loss.
- What do you do when something prevents you from doing your usual exercise method/routine? I have asthma so I can’t run outside. I usually play Step Mania because it gets my heart rate going. But sometimes my tech doesn’t work. And I don’t really have the space to do Zumba or other aerobics. I’ve tried going to the gym, but it takes so much extra time to get ready and leave the house and etc. Difference between spending exactly 30 minutes vs 90 minutes with commuting and getting situated and etc. at the gym. I don’t want exercise to be something I dread doing. Does anyone have something fun they do at home for exercise?
