I find the best music to listen to while I am working is calm music. If I am trying to concentrate, I like to listen to slow music, but it helps if I do not know the words or if there are no lyrics. If I know the words to the song I will be tempted to sing along and I find that distracting.
If I am working on something that does not require a lot of concentration I like the music to be peaceful but happy. I find that music streaming services offer some playlists that are pretty good. My favorites are the coffee house playlists. They play great music and I even discover new music.
Well, it totally depends on your choice and interest as different people may have different choices. However, I am going to share my own list of songs that I prefer to listen during the workout. So, my playlist might differ from the musical preferences of others.
To motivate yourself, you can listen to your all-time favorite songs. I mostly listen to songs like, “One More Time (Daft Punk)”, “Shake Your Body (The Jackson 5)”, “All The Stars (Kendrick Lamar feat SZA)”, “Girlfriend (Justin Bieber)” etc, as they help me to become more consistent and active during exercise. You can also have fun while working out in the gym with the help of these songs since they are upbeat and energetic.
Apart from the motivational songs, you can also go for classic rock, hip-hop, and romantic songs (depending on your preference). All of these will prevent you from feeling sluggish during your workout.
