3 Audio Entertainment Essentials Every Runner Should Have

3 Audio Entertainment Essentials Every Runner Should Have

Fitness is a pivotal part of a healthy person’s life. It’s also one of the key components to an overall productive life. One of the easiest and most cost efficient methods of exercise is running, regardless of whether it be at a gym or on the road. The problem that many of us face is being able to do the same thing over and over again without getting bored. This post is centered around providing 3 Audio Entertainment Essentials Every Runner Should Have in order to bear with a repetitive routine of running.

1. Energetic Music

For some reason, people are aware that they need music to keep them energised but still forget to use it. Music is known for evoking emotions and can be a strong influence to getting the adrenalin pumping throughout our bodies. Choose songs that are fast paced, energetic and that inspire you. They could be electronic dance music or even pop songs. The key to good music is choosing songs that YOU enjoy and that you associate with happy memories. Listening to songs that got you through a rough time in your life (like a breakup) are not exactly good choice. You want to stay motivated and feel optimistic so remember to choose songs that create a positive vibe.

2. Informative or Entertaining Podcasts

Believe it or not, this has proven to be one of the best ways to keep yourself entertained while running regularly. Podcasts are extremely personal, it often feels as though the host is talking to you directly, it’s almost like listening to your favourite radio station however it’s all focused around topics you enjoy listening to. For one, I enjoy listening to internet marketing podcasts and sometimes I get so carried away listening to these podcasts, I find myself running longer than I originally anticipated. The fantastic thing about podcasts is that they are mainly free and available on iTunes or websites. We want to keep our running sessions fun and not an expensive activity that puts a dent in our pocket.

3. Audio E-books

This is another unorthodox way to distract yourself from being bored but it is highly effective.Try listening to Audio E-books whenever you go running. Our time is precious and with a demanding lifestyle it makes reading books extremely difficult which is why listening to an Audio book while running is a great way to keep yourself distracted and entertained during your workout.You could attempt listening to a chapter at every run. This usually creates a psychological trigger in your mind because you begin to associate these stories and chapters to running. Every time you feel like finding out what happens next in the story, your mind prepares you for a run. That’s not a bad idea at all especially for sticking to a long term routine of running. Three chapters a week could mean 3 sessions of running every week. Not only will you be exercising productively but you’ll be rebooting your desire for books.

Staying fit and healthy is insanely important and I cannot emphasise just how much. Running can become your source of relaxation or simply an escape from the stresses of living such a fast paced life. Sometimes the best sort of rejuvenation is the time spent by yourself whilst burning of calories and stress with an excellent run. I hope that you try out these audio sources of entertainment and feel free to share any ideas you may have.

  5. Start a daily journal to write your thoughts in.

  13. Learn how to cook a new dish for dinner. We all get tired of eating the same thing, why not try making something new?
