There is one almost fail proof way to boost your mood no matter what’s stressing you out or getting you down. Know what it is?
I’ll give you a hint. It’s probably a part of your life already, and you experience it every single day.
So what is it?
Music, has the power to raise your vibes and shift your energy instantly and more powerfully than anything else I’ve ever experienced. It is consistently one of the most effective tools you can use to feel better in just a few minutes.
Music has the ability to make us feel the emotion that is portrayed in the lyrics. So if you’re listening to sad/stressful music, that’s what you’ll start to feel. If you’re listening to positive or healing music, that’s what you’ll feel.
So take a look at your current playlist? Are your favorite songs mostly positive? Or do you tend to tune into the heartbreak and drama songs more?
Give your playlist a makeover, or better yet create a new one. Pick out 10 songs that are purely positive and uplifting. Any genre you choose is fine, but pay attention to what the song is about. What’s the message in the lyrics? Only listen to songs with lyrics that you want to affirm in your own life.
