Music not only helps you out when youre feeling stressed and you want to relax. At times, music is a very good tool to use to motivate you and get you in the mood. And the mood Im talking about is exercise, more specifically jogging.
Most of us who take time out of each day to run a few kilometers or miles might do so in silence with only the sound of our breathing as our companion. But it really does pay to listen to music while you are jogging. Music will not only stimulate your brain but it will also stimulate your body and increase the burn that you get through the exercise.
Jogging music does not have a specific genre that you need to follow; the rule of thumb would be to choose music that you feel or music that you find effective.
The best music when jogging might depend on how you feel for that day. If you feel lazy, you may want to set aside a playlist that has run or walk as part of the lyrics. It might not all be in the same genre, but it will keep you focused on your goal.
To keep your heart pumping you can turn to alternative or rock or even pop to keep up your rhythm. This would mean Greenday, Lady Gaga, POD, and any other group or artist you can find with heavy bass sounds.
The best thing to do then when looking for the perfect jogging music is to be willing to try out different playlists and mix it up now and then.
