Some people hear a beat and just can’t help but move. Whether you just tap your toes or start a full on dance party, music most likely motivates you to keep moving.
Researchers find that music activates our brain and causes both a physical and a mood-based response. This explains why listening to music can boost exercise motivation. It can actually make it easier to move and create a positive association with exercise. Who couldn’t use more of that.
We are curious about what music is most likely to get your foot tapping? The marketing department at UMass Medical Center is putting together a playlist of music to keep people motivated to move. They decided to ask the experts… you!
