Theme Song

What’s your “energy” song? Today we’re sharing one of our all-time favorite “quick-energy” energy hacks. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it will make you feel good! And it goes like this: First, do you have a song that you ab-so-lutely love? Like, if you were an actress making the rounds on talk shows, you’d choose it as your walk-on song? Now, try this as an experiment. The next time you’re feeling tired and blah, crank up one of those songs. Voila! Instant energy! Scientists have found that music can activate a region of the brain – located in your prefrontal cortex – that suppresses fatigue. And what’s more, studies have long shown that upbeat music can actually help you work out harder and longer … without it feeling either longer or harder. Pretty cool, right? But this doesn’t only apply to your workouts. It can translate into the rest of your life, anytime you need a little extra energy. Note: This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t rest when your body is truly tired. It’s a useful tool, though, when you feel laggy. Give it a try next time you need a boost of energy.
