15 Best Songs to Add to Your 2018 New Year's Resolution Workout Playlist
With a new year comes new gym resolutions. If you need a little extra motivation to accomplish your goals, we agree with Emily Ratay at YourTango — add these upbeat songs to your 2018 playlist!
Get your fitness on!
It's that time of year again! If you are anything like me, then your New Year's resolution focus on something related to getting fit and looking like a million bucks.
Okay, I know that "exercising" is super vague and a very typical New Year's resolution, but that doesn't mean you can't stick with it!
In fact, I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be a year of important things and big changes, so surprises are not going to be as unusual as you think.
Plus, getting fit doesn't necessarily mean looking good in a bathing suit anymore. I mean, by all means, work for that "bikini bod". But it doesn't have to be your only motivation for wanting to sweat it out at the gym.
My motivation for wanting to get in shape is to feel better about myself — inside and out. I have already started on the inner exercise like working out my mind so 2018 is going to be my year to work on some exercise for my body.
But, I feel I have an obligation to say this, I am terrible with keeping my motivation up. Just awful.
And I suck at keeping up with going to the gym somewhat regularly.
I just find it boring sometimes to walk in place for an hour which is why I recommend taking advantage of the fresh air and getting some exercise outside where there's actually a good view.
But that's beside the point. My point is, if you don't have a good playlist to get you motivated to work out, then you're NEVER going to be able to push yourself and keep yourself pumped.
And if you've ever tried an online music streaming app, then you know that there's only so many songs that can fit your workout mood before you have to skip, like, 20 songs in a row.
And yes, I have tried to make my own playlist before, but I just have way too many songs to go through that it just doesn't seem worth it to put in the extra effort.
But now, with all of these new artists breaking out and well-known artists creating amazing new music, how can you not want to make an awesome music playlist specifically for working out, right?!
I mean, I understand a lot of people were upset when One Direction broke up, but you can't deny that they've ALL come out with catchy, fun songs on their own.
And I guarantee that if you have a good workout playlist, you can boost your motivation like crazy and kick some serious butt at the gym (or at home).
And to prove I know exactly what I'm talking about, here are ALL of the best songs to work out to in 2018. You can thank me later.
