Your Bonus Challenge for Day 5 (optional) is to work out with music. In addition to entertaining you, music has been proven to actually affect brain wave patterns. Play calming music during yoga, Pilates or post-workout stretching sessions. Rock out to something energetic on the elliptical or during a walk. Compile motivating playlists for strength-training sessions. Add slower songs for warm-ups and cool downs and throw in a few up-tempo songs to help you pick up the pace mid-workout. No MP3 player? No problem. Check out Pandora.com or our SparkSounds playlists to find tunes that are right for you.
