Maybe you want to lose weight. Or regain your health and feel younger. Maybe you have a dream to travel the world! Whatever your goals, this post will inspire you to activate your burning desire and never give up!
One of the healthiest people I know is a good friend of mine. She was there at the beginning of my health journey and continues to be my strongest, most motivating ally in achieving balance through healthy living.
Jacqueline (that’s not her real name) mentioned in our chat yesterday how challenging things have been for her at work. Ever since she got the job, she’s been working long hours. She’s up for a promotion but what’s really stressing her out is the office politics.
She told me how working out and running are her best stress relievers. But that’s not all she does. While Jacqueline’s releasing her physical tension in a workout, she plays inspiring music to help alleviate emotional and mental stress.
Jacqueline’s fav tune right now is “The Fire” featuring John Legend by The Roots (play above).
If you missed the lyrics, here they are in full but if you’re looking for a taste, here’s my favourite part:
It’s David and Goliath
I made it to the eye of the storm
Feeling tore like they fed me to lions
Before time start to wind down like the Mayans
I show ‘em how I got the grind down like a science
It sounds like a riot on hush
It’s so quiet, the only thing I hear is my heart
I’m inspired by the challenge that I find myself standin eye-to-eye with
To move like a wise warrior and not a coward
You can’t escape
The history you was meant to make
That’s why the highest victory is what I’m meant to take
You came to celebrate
I came to cerebrate
I hate losing I refuse to make the same mistakes
Next time your goals seem out of reach or taking too long to achieve, try working out with your favourite tune. You’ll get psyched up mentally and emotionally while getting physically stronger at the same time!
