Let’s face it – things get busy and difficult sometimes. Life is the thing that gets in the way of many dreams and goals. At the end of the day, it takes a lot of determination to keep pushing toward something when you’re tired. There’s plenty of advice about how to plan your day and achieve success.
I’m not going to argue with any of those tactics. In fact, I’m going to say whatever it takes to get you up and moving is the thing you need in your life – no matter how silly you may think it is.
Case in point: I’ve been struggling with a little boredom when it comes to my exercise routine. My shoulder is injured, so I’ve been concentrating on lower body work. It gets kind of boring. The other day, I was looking at some of my old playlists and found a gem I’d forgotten about… it was my funkadelic list and I thought I’d give it a try since it has been literally years since I’ve listened to it. Boy, am I glad I did. I know why I made that list because it makes me want to move. I love it! I know it’s cheesy and the music is really outdated but… I don’t care. It works for me.
So the takeaway today is to find something that makes you want to move. Find something that inspires you and cling to it. Hold on to it with delight and let yourself get lost in it. Let it make you feel good and forget about the world.
The body you want is easier to work for when you want to move – especially on those days you don’t feel like it.
So, let it rip! Here’s to Zapp, Brick, Wild Cherry, Kool and the Gang, KC and the Sunshine Band, Earth, Wind, and Fire and more for giving me music that makes me want to move.
If you have any songs that get you ready to move, I’d love to know what they are.
