#MyPlaylist gets me moving – Lauren Pierce

How do I get my 150 minutes?

When possible at work, I schedule “mobile meetings” where we walk instead of sit. Outside of work, I’m always on the move—running, biking, kayaking, weight lifting, tennis, pickle ball, yoga, etc. I also love planning vacations around physical activities and natural wonders (hiking National Parks, kayaking Pictured Rocks, snorkeling coral reefs, etc.).

Lauren Pierce 2Why do I get my 150 minutes each week?

It’s fun, rewarding and makes me feel good, both physically and mentally.

My top 3 workout songs are:

This list changes all the time, but these are either my go-to or recent favorites.

  1. Talk to the Moon by Ripe
  2. Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton
  3. Death of a Bachelor by Panic! At the Disco

According to the American Diabetes Association®, the economic burden of diabetes and prediabetes in the United States is over $327 billion in medical costs and lost productivity each year. However, 150 minutes of exercise each week can help reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes.

As part of Diabetes Month, we want you to share the top 3 songs that get you moving with #MyPlaylist, and challenge your friends and coworkers to participate, as well. To get you started, we’ll be sharing #MyPlaylist entries from our employees on our blog.
