My Guilty Pleasure #2


My Guilty Pleasure #2: Listening to Disney Music while Working Out
You know those articles, like in People magazine, where a famous person is asked to share what their guilty pleasure is? Well I thought it would be fun to imagine mine. There is definitely something sinfully enjoyable about confessing things you secretly do that give you pleasure.

My Guilty Pleasure #2 is listening to Disney music while I am working out. I confess, this mature adult loves to listen to this feel good music. Disney music has an upbeat tempo which helps motivate me and keep up my pace. The message in the music is empowering and positive. A great way to start the day.

The more I listen to my Disney morning music the more I have also noticed how female focused it is. Disney has been promoting and celebrating strong female characters since its inception. Everyone of them has to realize who they are and how to access their strengths in order to overcome the odds they are faced with. In recent years the female protagonists have become the singular heros in their stories, saving themselves and others. Of course, their strengths are founded in relationships, caring about others and intelligence.

As a female entrepreneur I thrive on the Disney Amazon Female Warrior message. My morning Disney music fix while I am working out makes me feel engergized, capable and maybe even a little invinsible. When attitude is such a key part to success a little boost from Mulan and Belle to Elsa, Tiana, Cinderella and Pocahontas is welcome.

There is something pretty fun and empowering about imagining what people might think if they knew I was receiving my mojo from exercising to Disney Animated Female characters singing schmaltzy songs. A guilty pleasure? You bet.
