Music is food for the mind, body, and soul. According to a Harvard Medical School article, music positively affects your well-being, learning, cognitive function, quality of life, and even happiness. This is because music activates almost all of the brain. When listening to music you especially love, your motor system starts up. The parts of the brain that controls emotions are also activated and synchronized. Needless to say, the type of music you listen to can affect your performance during daily activities. Lo-fi beats are great for studying. Instrumental jazz is ideal for relaxing. Throwback hits are a non-negotiable for Saturday morning cleaning sessions.

Your workout playlist is no different. You need tunes that keep your energy, focus, and motivation high. The lyrics in secular songs can compromise this. Gospel music, however, has the power to put you in a good mood, have you consistently praising, and reminds you of his promises and faithfulness.

Luckily, there is no shortage of Christian artists that have songs to keep you lively and driven to move during your workout without undermining your emotions or spiritual well-being.

Here are our Gospel workout music picks to add to your warm up, workout, and cool down playlists.
