Get Motivated Through Music


This is a sponsored post.

This post is also part of my #FightLatinoObesity series

As a homeschooling mom, I'm always looking for ways to keep my kids active and healthy. We're fortunate to live on a small farm with lots of trees and space for outdoor games. But during the winter, those outdoor activities really take a hit. So it's up to me to look for indoor exercises like yoga, exercise videos, and more. In the summer we swim and hike, garden and haul hay (small farm, remember?). I've also investigated trackers that monitor physical activity year round. But I still look for ways to get the most out of these activities. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that music may be the answer. 

Studies have shown that music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by as much as 15%.  Unfortunately, most people miss out on those benefits because their earphones hurt and fall out during active use. Simple equipment can extend a good exercise session for children and adults. Do your children use earphones when they're exercising? If not, you might try yurbuds, a brand of Stereo-Bluetooth® earphones that use TwistLock™ Technology and FlexSoft Comfort Fit to lock in place comfortably and are guaranteed never to hurt or fall out. They're even compatible with all Bluetooth® devices.

Here's a list of some of our favorite songs that really energize us and motivate us to move - even it if is simple dancing in the living room:

  • Sergio Mendes and Brazil '66 - Mais Que Nada
  • Anything from The BeeGees!
  • Rumba Mambo Cha Cha Cha by Putumayo 
  • Disco Inferno
  • The Gypsy Kings!
What songs get your family movin'?

  1. that is so true! i love running, and one of the ways to keep myself moving, is with the music on my phone. My girls also love dancing, so every music with a "beat" make them move! We don't necessary have to feel like we are exercising, sometimes, specially with kids, we have to enjoy it too.

    1. Yes! I am a big music lover and so are my kids. We frequently have it on while we do school, but I had not thought about using it while exercising.
