Listening to favorite music can help those of us with PCOS to exercise more effectively to lose weight and combat symptoms of our condition like high levels of heart-damaging LDL “bad” cholesterol.
In a recent study, researchers at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey discovered that, over the course of six months, female exercisers who listened to music dropped twice the pounds compared to another group who didn’t have portable CD players when exercising.
Music is thought to relieve stress, tension and anxiety, enabling a person to focus on songs or surroundings, instead of any discomfort caused by exercise.
Burn your own CD selection that includes a medium-paced warm-up song, then some tunes with a driving beat and finally a mellow track for cooling down. Always keep the volume at a reasonable level to stay aware of your surroundings, especially when exercising outside, and to avoid damaging your hearing.
