Music . . . Good for the Soul

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Music has always been a huge part of my life. Lately it has played two really key roles. First, in motivation to exercise, as it really pushes me to move. Without music, I would quit any type of workout much quicker . . . no doubt!

And second, for relaxation.

I have been super-stressed lately. I'm doing new things at work. I have a new boss. And I'm moving into a work space that is half the size of my current space. Everything is changing, and I have little control over anything but how I handle it. I've not been handling it well. It's an interesting scenario because a few minor changes is no big deal. But these are some major changes.

As I sit here typing this blog, my iPod is playing a song that I think I've blogged about before . . . Trouble is a Friend by Lenka. "He's there in the dark. He's there in my heart. He waits in the wings, he's gotta play a part. Trouble is a friend, yes, trouble is a friend of mine. "

Trouble has definitely been looming for me lately, and my weight loss shows it. So best to get it in check!

Spark Cheers All!

  I love music too. It picks me up when I'm down. Hopefully, it will do the same for you.
