Everybody grab your earbuds today! Let’s use some “good medicine” that comes without a childproof lid. Music has a spectacular capacity to move our mood. Feeling crummy? Craving? Crank up the tunes! We all know it works, so let’s make a HABIT of taking our music with us wherever we go. Music is medicine!
From Crappy to Happy
If you’re already in the daily music groove, try to pay attention to which songs shift your mood the most. Make a playlist that’ll turn your day from crappy to happy! Watch out for the songs which might remind us habits we’re trying to live without. They can be powerful hooks because music activates emotions and glues then into our brain (nope, I’m not a neurologist! LOL!) Seriously, though… I have a playlist that I absolutely cannot play in the car because I end up driving way too fast! So, I’ve learned to reserve that playlist for when I’m trying to power through tough yardwork.
Mr. Blue Sky by WHO?
The original of this song, by the one and only Electric Light Orchestra is an all-time favorite, but when I saw this version, I had to check it out!
Here’s another post about the power of music. It’s something I talk about in group often, because it’s SUCH “Good Medicine!”
Name that Tune, Change that Mood
I’d love to hear from you today – tell us what you’re listening to. What’s that tune that will always do it for you? Thanks for being awesome.
Grab your air guitar, get out there, and crank up your mood, because music is medicine!
