It will put a spring in your step andhelp you to be positive, you will feel capable of anything andthat feel-good feeling will carry you through the day.

2. Put music in your car. Listening to the radio can help torelax you after a hard days work. If you get home stressed outand grumpy, you are much more likely to go to the cupboard andovereat. Play music in the car, as loud as you like and have agood sing. Putting all your frustrated energy into singing willhelp you feel relaxed and give your mood a much needed boost.You will get home refreshed and energetic rather than exhaustedand feeling down.

3. If in the evening you are bored watching television you willfind yourself going to the cupboard to snack on foods. This is areally bad time for all dieters. Turn off the television and putsome music on, do your household chores, have a dance with yourchildren, play games or invite friends over for coffee. Not onlyare you not overeating but you are also spending quality timewith your family or friends.

I cannot tell you which is the best song to listen to or evenwhich album motivates people the most. The choice is yours. Itwill be different for everyone and will probably depend on manyfactors, age, taste in music, life events, lifestyle, etc. WhatI can say is have a good look through your music collection andchoose several albums, this way you won't get bored too easilyand will enjoy the music. Try listening to songs you used tolove when you were younger, it brings back happy memories andencourages you to lose those extra pounds

It might even motivate you into going for a long walk.Getsome fresh air into your lungs and enjoy it. Don't look at it asexercise, it is simply getting out of the house to stretch yourlegs.
