Holly Jones, wellness coordinator at Buckner Villas, knows better than to forget her iPod for work each morning.
Holly’s well-loved device carries the more than 20 playlists she’s crafted for fitness classes, and these tunes have come to set the tone for the entire wellness center at the Austin senior living community. Her repertoire includes lineups for New Year's, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and Thanksgiving, not to mention the five different Christmas playlists she rotates during the holiday season.
“I spend hours creating just the right playlist and choreography for each class,” Jones said, “because when it comes to senior adult fitness, music is as much of an important tool as handheld weights and resistance bands.”
What we put into our minds affects us. Songs bring people together, energize them and stimulate brain activity. Reading and meditating on the Bible embeds God’s truths in our lives. It focuses our lives on God and honoring him in all we do. When God calls us to action, we’re more likely to respond.
This week, what will you put in your mind?
