Need motivation for some more exercise? Spotify can do the trick. It’s super easy to create a Spotify playlist based on the beats per minute in your favorite songs. First, sign up for a Spotify premium account. It’s $10 per month and worth every penny. Create a playlist called “Walking Music” or something else you’ll recognize. Head over to walk.jog.fm, which has a great database that lets you search by song, artist or BPM for whatever music you want to add. I like to stick around 120 BPM, which is “march tempo” and lets me walk about 3.7 miles in an hour. Once you find a song you like, click “Listen in Spotify.” If it’s the right version, drag it to your new playlist. Add about 20 songs this way, then head into your Spotify app’s settings menu and slide the crossfade slider to 12 seconds. Sync your smartphone with the app and make sure the music has downloaded… you’re all set for a great morning walk! Let me know how it goes.
