It’s by Mumford & Sons.
The first time I saw them play live at the Grammys, I was just blown away by their intensity–and I don’t even like that kind of music. I’m not a banjo/bluegrass kind of girl. Alternative music, yes.
But something was so intense about these brothers. I was struck by how potent their energy was. Watching them, listening to them, and seeing how earnest they were and how beautiful their music sounded…
It made me feel buoyant.
I thought, OMG! I want to go running every day and listen to this song!
So I put it on a playlist, and I’ve been going running just about every day since.
My husband rolls his eyes and teases me. “He’s 10 years younger than you, what is going on? You’re so turned on by this guy!”
But it’s not sexual.
Okay, maybe it’s a little bit sexual. But mostly I feel this incredible rush.
Like I can handle anything. It makes me feel more like me to hear it.
I don’t need to look like a Baywatch actress, but now that I have my own theme song, it’s like having a homing device back to my most turned-on, powerful self.
I wonder what your theme song would be—and what parts of yourself it could remind you of?
Please tell me in the comments section.

PS: Have you noticed that we have an epidemic of low sex drive in this country? It’s the #1 issue in my integrative medicine practice. I believe that needs to change. I believe in changing it, with potent and natural solutions. Join the Love Train right here.
