So, we have all heard that music feeds the soul, right? For those who had not, you have now. Haha.
Anyway, I have always enjoyed a wide variety of genres of music to feed different moods. I never really thought all that much about how it affects you, other than occasionally making you smile.
I have always known that it can boost your mood to say, listen to a fun energetic song while on the way to work. You seem to arrive extra ready to begin your day. Right?
I wonder if you listen to hard pounding rock all day if that makes your outlook different as well? Possibly if you listen to blues? Will it affect your outlook in a more negative way?
I suppose any type of extreme music will in some ways change how you view things if that is exclusively what you hear. Will you be all sad and dreary if you only listen to “love them and leave them” songs? Will your mood improve if you, on the flip-side, hear only songs with a happy ending?
Yesterday, I chatted with someone who said that music changed her life! She had been stressed and down lately. She has a lot of things going on in her life. She had just recently downloaded an app for her phone that helps you download more music. She had gotten away from playing much other than while driving because of the costs.
Her mood had, within days, improved dramatically! She sounded cheery and upbeat. She had hooked a small speaker to her phone and started right away listening to songs she hadn’t heard for ages. She was actually dancing in the kitchen during supper preparations to her kids’ delight!
So I ask you, reader, what do you listen to? Have you at least put one happier song into your playlist? It may help you! No matter what is going on in our lives we all need to, at least sometimes, focus on good things going on around us.
Possibly take that few minutes to listen to whatever song that makes us smile. You never know, maybe it could change your life too!
No one will care if you are dancing around the kitchen, unless perhaps you are at work. Haha!
Your soul may just love the boost it brings to you!
