If you're anything like me, these short, dark days and chilly temps make for better motivation to curl up under the covers than to hit the streets for an outdoor workout. It's tempting to settle into living room DVD hibernation mode, no matter how much I remind myself about the benefits of exercising outside. Naturally, aside from a warm pair of gloves, it takes some pretty motivating music to get me out the door -- and maybe a little visualization that I'm actually somewhere warm.

So pop in some earbuds and listen to these warm tunes. Maybe, just maybe, we can will the cold away.
