Feeling a Bit Punk?

I took a nice brisk walk on a treadmill today and I feel so much better.

If you are feeling a bit punk, blue or blah, grab your phone and your earbuds and go for a walk.  Outside, if you can.  On a treadmill at the gym if it’s bitterly cold.

This was my playlist:

A Beautiful Morning (The Rascals)
Everyday People (Sly & The Family Stone)

I always start with those two because they put a pep in my step and a smile on my face.  Then I mix it up a bit depending on how fast and crazy I want to get.  Right now I’m easing back into this exercise thing so I went with these today:

Yesu Azall Awa (Selah)
The River (Janny Grein)
Bad Moon Rising (Creedance Clearwater Revival)
I Feel the Earth Move (Carole King)
I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) (The Proclaimers)
Fortunate Son (Creedance Clearwater Revival)
Try (Pink)
Something Beautiful (Needtobreathe)
Revival Song (Janny Grein)

And then for the cool down:

You Made Me Strong  (Janny Grein)
Praise Him (Janny Grein)
He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother (The Hollies)

“…. I know that I’m in reach
‘Cause I am down on my knees.
waiting for something beautiful
Oh, oh, oh something beautiful.”
