Then, 1.



"Keeping Warm" by We Were Promised Jetpacks...



This is the song I listened to for about 1/2 of my jog the other night.  If you're going to think yourself healthy, as I am, then you've got to keep on exercising.  If you're going to keep on exercising, as I am, then you've got to have inspirational music to spur you on.  This song does the trick.

Added benefit: A while back, I heard a podcast that suggested that if you are having a bad day or very busy, you should listen to euro-techno kind of music because that background music makes it seem like what you're going through is simply a very exciting movie.  This song is even better for that.  I'm listening to it as I type this post and get ready to start doing a brief, and it makes my sitting at my desk in my office seem as though it's not just another Thursday, but instead is the beginning of the kind of movie where people end up, at some point, driving triumphantly across a bridge, the wind in their hair and an exciting new world ahead of them.

So there's that, too.

My new favorite inspirational song is "Struggle" by Bill Shatner. Because many days you do need to struggle.

I read about your jog yesterday and it actually got me motivated to go to the gym and work out for half an hour. After that, I felt really good. So you are encouraging me to be healthier! Thank you Briane!
