I know music is a very personal choice, especially during workouts. For me, I like music that matches the intensity I’m looking to achieve with my workout. A lot of times for flows, I’ll choose something like house music from Kygo — something that’s got some brightness to it and ups and downs. When I’m in the mood to “beast it out,” I’ll choose pop hits — like from Pink. I also love old-school tunes like Dr. Dre and maybe some AC/DC to pump myself up.
When it comes to breathwork, I try to choose music that doesn’t have any words — such as singing bowls. And when I go on my daily walks, I like to listen to binaural beats or “power nap”-type music. Finally, when I sleep, I tend to listen to ocean waves.
As you can see, I’m all over the place when it comes to music — and that’s what works for me. I think if you just go with the intensity of the way you want to feel, then you’re always going to be on the right track. Check out my curated playlist, which I’ve dubbed “Good Sh!t.” It might be just what you’re looking for!
