While it has been clinically proven that music can have an effect on mood, it is a very personal, subjective experience. One song can have an incredibly uplifting effect on one person, but could trigger memories or sadness in another.
I must admit, music has played a large role in my life, and I can't imagine a day without it. For over a decade I stopped listening to music that I loved on a regular basis. Once I started again it had a profound change on my mood. Some songs that had made me sad before I was starting to see in a new way.
I have a list of songs that always make me feel better if I'm feeling down, some that are empowering, and others that are great for getting my energy levels up (I need all I can get when it comes to cleaning the house!).
Are there any songs that give you a boost? That bring a smile to your face whenever you hear it?
Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your list of faves, and we'll add it to the online list for everyone to share (I will add it as a separate blog post).
Keep dancing on the inside, friends.
