It’s a rainy Tuesday, your pet left a “present” by the door and now you’re late for work. Oh, don’t forget you didn’t eat breakfast and you just suffered through traffic. Your day is already out to get you and you haven’t even hit the time clock! Does this sound familiar? Absolutely! I can’t count the mornings where something has gone wrong or thrown off my routine! What can you do to refocus your energy and change your mood when the coffee just isn’t enough?
Music! It’s that simple. There have been many studies that show music can boost your mood, even sad or slow music! It might sound obvious or even a little silly, but the power of music is hard to deny! The mornings I indulge in some favorite tunes definitely make me more eager and productive. In the afternoon when that after lunch slump hits, I pick up the energy with my favorite throwback jams!
Not sure what to music to play or where to start? Well I have you covered! Here is my list of smile inducing songs that will help the positive vibes and motivation start flowing!
