Music is everywhere! It infuses our life often in times when we least expect it, like when you’re doing something and a song pops into your head and you can’t get it out of your mind. Music and exercise are also indelibly intertwined together. Inexorably linked is another phrase that describes this phenomenon accurately.
One of the reasons I say this is that if you look at all of the workout programs on the market today, from Beach body’s Insanity to Winsor Pilates, you will find that there’s music in the background or even in the foreground of the work out!
I find that if I turn the music off when working out I have less urge to complete the workout as helps to provide energy needed to finish the workout. Fascinating!
Music and exercise in my mind forms a symbiotic relationship in that having music helps you to exercise, but at the same time when you exercise it clears the mind and allows the creative processes to come to the fore, such as playing music by ear or by sight. 🙂
I love it that Music and Exercise formed such a symbiosis to keep us exercising and enables us to Play It By Ear!
