Do you exercise? Do tend to stick earbuds in your ears and turn on a soundtrack to your life as soon as the spandex goes on? This little article mirrors my own story and offers a good perspective on ditching the earbuds.
I used to have a soundtrack to my exercise life. Running – soundtrack, biking – soundtrack, lifting weights – soundtrack. The main reason I gave up on having a soundtrack to my exercise is when I race in triathlons, having earbuds is an automatic disqualification. I figured, if I can’t race with them, might as well get used to training without them.
