#MyPlaylist gets me moving – Tracey Brown
Written by Tracey Brown, Chief Executive Officer, American Diabetes Association®
How do I get my 150 minutes?
My husband, daughter, and I work out together. We go for walks around our neighborhood; I have dance parties with my daughter. Or, I take some “me time” and hit the gym. My family keeps me motivated and accountable, which ensures we get our physical activity in. Working out, eating right, and getting adequate rest are things I have incorporated in my #EverydayReality.
My top 3 workout songs are:
These songs keep my energy high and keep me pumped to complete my workout. As we close American Diabetes Awareness Month. I encourage everyone to update their playlists with songs that keep them moving and motivated! Stay Active, stay fit, and thrive!
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.
