Whistle While You Work

Did you think of Snow White and the seven dwarfs when you read the title of this post? Maybe you even started singing the song. I sure did. I really think Snow White was onto something with this song. Music really does make work more fun. How can we incorporate music into our work? Today, I am going to share three ways we can use music in our days.


One way to incorporate music in your day is while working out.  On my morning run, I use a “Running” Playlist which is filled with encouraging songs to motivate me.

I also listen to music on the days when I walk. It’s another great way to get my mind focused on praising God. Upbeat music while working out is also very motivating.

Kids Job Time

After the kids get home from school, we sit right down for a snack. Next up is our job time (chores). A couple of months ago, I decided to make a playlist on the iPod for job time. I added fun upbeat songs.

The kids love blaring the music while working. In fact, Nathan, our oldest son, created another job time playlist. I love how he took ownership of this. Music really does help jobs be more fun.


Dishes. We can always count on them being there for us. One way I help make this time more fun is by playing praise music. I’ll either put an Amazon station on or use my “Go To Worship Music” playlist.  The time goes so much quicker with music going. And it gets my mind on Jesus which is the best place to be.

Hopefully, this post has given you some fun ideas on how to “Whistle while you work.” What ways do you use music in your day? I would love to hear any ideas. Please comment below. Please also feel free to share any song ideas. Thank you!
