Sometimes life gets me down - things not going well at work or home, loss, scale, lack of energy, etc. I popped in a CD of some uplifting & soothing music. Then I took a walk, enjoying the songbirds and beauty outdoors.
With the more positive outlook, I feel less buried by my circumstances. Now I can find the energy to deal with what's on my plate.

Listen to old favorites on YouTube. It's a wonderful mood lifter. Enjoy the nostalgia! I made up about 38 minutes worth of songs to work out and cool down to. Here are the songs that pick up my mood dramatically: Here You Come Again, Real Love, Home, Down on the Corner, Mountain Music, Roll On, All I Ever Need is You, Love is Like a Butterfly, Maybe You Should Know, You decorated my Life, You light up my life, To Me. (Kenny Rogers, Dolly, Alabama, CCR)
Play these songs in order and you'll be set up for a great workout from warm up, fast pace, cool down and stretching! Try it and enjoy! Great for walking in place/ treadmill, or other cardio.
