Day 13: Finding Motivation Without Music

One of the things I miss most about not having an iPhone is not being able to plug into music any time during that day that I want. I pretty much forgot that this was something I was going to have to give up.

It is hard because for me, and I am guessing for most people, music is a great way to not only lift up your mood, but to also motivate you. I've recently been getting up at 7:30 to go to my boxing workouts and have found it extra difficult because I do not have a soundtrack that is getting me out of bed.

There is good in this. More and more, I have found alternative ways to find motivation in the morning. While having a soundtrack to my life was uplifting and fun, our lives are not movies and we have to face the reality that waiting at a bus stop is going to be boring sometimes, with the wind whistling and the trees blowing. But it is hard sometimes!
