The Best Things To Listen To When Going For A Walk

Choose wisely to make your walks more enjoyable

Going for a walk is a great form of exercise. It's one of my favorite activities, personally.

It gets even better when you have the right soundtrack. While that's different for everyone, the main buckets to choose from are the same. Here's where you can get inspired and have a productive walk:

1. Natural Sound

The first one is simple... Nothing at all! Nature itself has a soundtrack, especially if you're in a nature-filled environment with birds and wildlife. But even an urban setting has its own unique sounds that can be pleasing to take in if you give them a chance. So try removing the headphones and take it all in.

2. Apple Fitness+ Guides

Save yourself the $9.99 per month and start with a free trial first. If you don't like it, cancel. But if you do give it a go, you'll find it's wonderful to have a wide range of celebrities going for a walk with you. They're specifically designed for meditated, guided walks, and you get to know them a bit better too, including their favorite music which is played.

3. Your Favorite Music



Whether it's a series of playlists that you cycle through, one big gigantic playlist you have on shuffle, or a radio-type offering with similar music to your favorite tastes, there's nothing like good ol' Spotify (or a service like it) to listen to your favorite music as you walk. Something come on that you're not in the mood for? Simply: Next.

4. Podcasts or Audio Books



There are TONS to choose from, and they'll make you feel well-informed or entertained while on the go. Here are some podcast options. You can also explore the offerings in your favorite audio app. Look for content based on your interests.

5. The Radio


Yes, the good ol' fashioned radio. Have a number of stations available to you on the go with an app like Audacy or pull up your favorite station's website & see how you can listen while going for a walk.

There might be other soundtracks, but the five options above are the best tried-and-true audio companions for a walk. Give them each a try and stick with what works for you!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
