Music is a very powerful neurological tool that helps us change our mindset and mood. Listening to your favourite tunes while performing different activities is a great motivational exercise. It’s food for the soul and what we need in our lives at the moment. Seeing as we are in a new era that’s thrown us an unprecedented curve-ball, we need all the upliftment we can get. So I created a Fit Like Mummy playlist to keep myself sane as part of my #21daylockdown challenge.
Before we get to my playlist, lets talk about workout playlists. With more than 54 million workout-focused playlists on Spotify, we optimistically shared our fitness goals at the start of the news decade. Life however had other plans in store for us. 2020 fitness trends aren’t what we envisaged but fitsters around the world are getting creative with their home workouts and so can you. Now all you have to do is find the perfect playlist or create one of your very own.
According to the data, the top streamed workout song globally is Eminem’s “‘Till I Collapse” while South Africans have been ‘sweating it out to’ ‘’SOS’’ from Avici, feat. Aloe Blacc. Sweden is the most ‘zen’ country based on the number of meditation and yoga playlists per listener, while Norway is the most active and the top activity is running. Do you have a favourite song to workout to?
21 Day lock-down challenge
At the beginning of the 21 day lock-down I shared a post about 10 Ways to be Positive which include a 21 day lock-down challenge that I hope helps keep fellow South Africans positive amidst the chaos. Day 2 of the challenge calls for us to create a playlist. I’ve never attempted to create a playlist, but …. today I did. I used Spotify and it was really really easy which was a huge relief. So box ticked for learning some thing during these 21 days. Have a listen to my playlist and let me know what you think of it. Did I do good ?
Drop me a comment letting me know what you think of my Fit Like Mummy playlist and a link if you have a playlist of your own.
Stay at home. Stay safe and keep it positive.
