How music can help you lose more weight

Shenrina Badri

Playing music may help you speed up weight loss.

MELODY. Music generates the motivation needed to work harder. Picture: Stock.Xchng.

If you are a music lover and are trying to take a few kilograms off, consider playing music when you are engaging in your workout.

The louder and the more fast-paced the music, the higher the chance that you will be encouraged to get moving. You may even want to throw in a few dance moves in the process!

In fact, dancing is also a great way to get the calories burning. So if you find that performing specific exercises are just not for you, then why not jump at the opportunity to do those dance moves that you always wanted to?

Variety of songs

Try to put together a small variety of songs that you enjoy, and play them when working out. This will prevent boredom and possibly get you to engage in different body movements, thus making you use other muscles of your body.

Dress comfortably

Ensure that you dress comfortably when exercising (or dancing) as this will not only make the process more effective, but will also help to prevent possible injury.

Experiencing discomfort?

Always stop if you experience any discomfort or pain and remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions, and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
