The Fitness Playlist

Greetings, friends. If you read my blog you may know that I am a current student, and therefore sometimes school makes me feel like I am losing my marbles.

One of the ways I’ve been dealing with my stress levels lately is establishing a routine of going to the gym at least twice a week for an hour or so, and working out until I start to feel more calm. Not only is this healthier than locking myself in my room and dwelling on the influx of assignments I’m plowing through, but it’s also a productive way to stay in shape.

I always listen to music while working out, and generally rely on the “shuffle” function on my phone. So, I present to you the playlist of the top-played songs my phone generates from my library while I am trying to convince myself to think that running on the treadmill is fun.

A link to the playlist can be found here and the track listing is below.

  1. Run 2/New Order
  2. This Way/Jets Overhead
  3. You Might Think/The Cars
  4. Head Over Heels/Tears for Fears
  5. Short Skirt/Long Jacket/Cake
  6. Smile Like You Mean It/The Killers
  7. Can’t Stop/Red Hot Chili Peppers
  8. No New Tale to Tell/Love and Rockets
  9. Ways to Go/Grouplove
  10. Shuffle/Bombay Bicycle Club
  11. Just Another Day/Oingo Boingo
  12. The Suburbs/Arcade Fire
  13. Eye of Fatima, Part 1/Camper Van Beethoven
  14. Supermassive Black Hole/Muse
  15. Calamity Song/The Decemberists
  16. Aberdeen/Cage the Elephant
  17. Whirring/The Joy Formidable
  18. Breathing Underwater/Metric
  19. Drive That Fast/Kitchens of Distinction
  20. Stockholm/New Fast Automatic Daffodils
  21. Sleep Alone/Two Door Cinema Club
  22. Forrest Whitaker/Bad Books
  23. Sixteen Saltines/Jack White
  24. BAGBOY/Pixies
  25. Out of my League/Fitz and the Tantrums
  26. Miracle Mile/Cold War Kids
  27. It’s Alright/Matt and Kim
  28. Tonight You’re Perfect/New Politics
  29. Carried Away/Passion Pit
  30. The Wire/Haim
  31. Keep in the Dark/Temples
  32. All the Rage Back Home/Interpol
  33. Hit Me/The London Suede
  34. What Kind of Man/Florence+The Machine
  35. The Party Line/Belle and Sebastian

A bit extensive this time, yes, but still a pretty good selection (if I do say so myself). Also, I must add, I hope everyone remembers to take care of themselves and deal with their stress levels in healthy ways. Staying on top of tasks is imperative, but physical and mental health are both very important. Keeping yourself healthy and happy makes it easier to accomplish your to-do list, and you deserve to feel your best.

Thanks for reading, and God bless.

    • Same here. We got a new fitness centre on my campus last year and I just went for the first time last weekend (have been using the older one closer to my house). I can already tell it’s going to be a great place for Saturday afternoons when I can’t study anymore.
