Here's Why You Should Be Watching A Scary Movie During Your Next Workout
There are days my motivation to work out is minimal at best, and as the weather gets colder, those days seem to become more and more frequent. Yes, the moment the temperature starts to drop, and the leaves even suggest turning color, I'd really rather just curl up on the couch with a bowl of chips and a horror movie to begin my very enthusiastic countdown to Halloween. But luckily for me, I've discovered a new motivation that might help me get in the mood to move when I'm just not feelin' it. It turns out that watching scary movies while exercising can actually pack a serious punch when it comes to your aerobic exercise.
Believe it or not, this is not as much of a stretch as it sounds. There has been actual research done that supports the idea that watching a horror film has around the same aerobic and metabolic impact as taking a 30-minute walk.
