Tranccidental Running

Tree

When I first got back from Sweden, the first thing I wanted to do in Malaysia was go for a run outdoors. That’s yet another positive trait I learnt from my time on exchange, to stop being a treadmill junkie and actually go outside for some exercise. Obviously my gated community does not even begin to compare to a Swedish forest, even one that was basically 15 minutes from the heart of the city. But what I found was listening to the same trippy playlist, was still able to put me in the same mindset of wanting to appreciate all of my surroundings. I really think exhibiting mindfulness in whatever you do, even something like running which (to me) doesn’t require much thinking, vastly changes the experience.

I’ve also since listened to this while driving or just lying on my bed as I watch the ceiling fan turn. I think its just a great playlist to put you in the mood for being quiet.Tranccidental is how I describe the outdoor running I did in Sweden, strangely uplifting with the first song to spark the playlist being discovered on the shuffle setting, a complete accident.
