Hello Everyone,
 
I am looking for ideas from all of you.  What songs do you exercise to?

Music is an extremely powerful form of expression. It combines both words and sound to deliver a message. Certain songs that one hears on the radio can trigger specific memories in one's mind. There is no doubt, there is a fervent connection between music and our feelings.

Exercise has long been touted as a way to maintain physical fitness and help prevent high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. A growing volume of research shows that exercise can also help improve symptoms of certain mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety. Exercise may also help prevent a relapse after treatment for depression or anxiety.

Research suggests that it may take at least 30 minutes of exercise a day for at least three to five days a week to significantly improve depression symptoms. But smaller amounts of activity — as little as 10 to 15 minutes at a time — can improve mood in the short term. Small bouts of exercise may be a great way to get started if it's initially too hard to do more.

So lets put the music together with the exercise and get up and dance.

Ok, your turn, what songs getting your feet moving?

I will start:           The Sweet Escape  by Gwen Stafani

Hugs all

Kitt

I often kick up the stereo and dance. It is my form of exercise when the weather kicks my butt. I like to boogie to Rockstar by Nickelback. Also anything with a good beat.
Hugs to all,

Elvis Presley has some neat songs to dance too. "Proud Mary" is a good one. These are older tunes, but Pink Cadillac and I Love the Night Life, are good ones to dance too.
I jsst bought an exercise bike. It is an air resistance bike and the handles move so you get a total workout. I'm starting out at 15 minutes twice a day and plan to bike a half hour a day.
Lots of luck with your danciing. It's a good way to help getting over depression. Dee

I can tell you, I am a terrible dancer but a few songs that make me really want to dance are:

Jamiroquai- Canned Heat
Earth Wind and Fire- September
Ciara- 1 2 Step

I really enjoy doing yoga and listening to Radiohead or Fiona Apple

This is way cool, you all have some good music that you like to listen to. I think that and dancing helps a lot when we are depressed. Plus the dancing gives us the aerobic workout. I dance by myself though, but it still helps.

I, too am a terrible dancer but music really is such an important part in our lives as Kitt has said. I think for me it has to be:

Meatloaf - Bat out of Hell

Lets Get Physical - Olivia Newton John

Fame - Irene Cara

Scissor Sisters have a few good 'get up and move' sort of songs. I also like:
The Darkness - I Believe in a Thing Called Love
The Fratellis - Chelsea Dagger
The Killjoys - Rave and Drool

These songs have a strong beat which make them good for dancing to, working out to, or just drumming along to in the car. The Darkness one usually makes me laugh. :)
