How To: Feel Better With Music

You know how some songs can magically make you feel instantly happy and optimistic about the world? Well, that's what I love about music.

Yesterday I saw this quote on tumblr (yes, so original) and it got me thinking about the power of music. For example, if I'm in a crummy mood and then listen to a super sad song, like "Breathe Me" by Sia, then I will 100 percent become even more sad and most likely cry for ten minutes. (Note: sometimes I find releasing my emotions this way to be beneficial) On the other hand, listening to happier music never ceases to put me in a good mood. So yes, music really is a powerful thing and personally, I think we should take advantage of its magic.

Top "Feel-Good" Songs You Should Listen To When You Are In A Bad Mood, Feel Like There Is No Hope For the Future or Just Need A Little Pick-Me-Up:



Wavin' Flag- K'NAAN



Back Home-Andy Grammer


Dog Days Are Over- Florence + the Machine


I Make My Own Sunshine-Alyssa Bonagura


Smile-Uncle Kracker


This Will Be- Natalie Cole


Ain't No Mountain High Enough-Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell



That's all for now.
