Next in our series on how to boost energy levels: listen to music. If you find that your energy levels are flagging then get the radio on or listen to your iPod for a bit. This works especially well in training. Even though our personal trainers mainly do home visits in the London and Windsor areas, we often take a small music system along or use a client’s to get the tunes going. This also has the advantage of not having to listen to the gym’s awful raving music selection. Research has established that music heightens motivation and stimulates interest because it syncronises both the left and the right sides of the brain, which in turn helps you to feel more alert. So get hopping just like John Travolta!
