Music has the ability to change our moods in an instant.
A peppy song from our college days can make us remember happy times, and a song an ex-boyfriend loved can put us in a bad mood just as fast.
When I get up on the wrong side of the bed, I know listening to my uplifting morning playlist will help turn my day around.
Do you have a morning playlist? Your beeping alarm clock and snoring dog don’t count.
Go through your music collection choose songs that will put you in a good mood first thing in the morning.
Be mindful of the songs you select for your playlist. Choose upbeat songs that make you want to get moving, not dreary ballads that make you want to get back under the covers. Those nice…warm…covers…
The lyrics are just as important as the beat. I know some people who never pay attention to the lyrics, but the words of the songs we listen to can subconsciously affect our moods.
Pick songs that are happy, positive, or inspirational. No breakups, deaths, or name-calling.
These are some of my favorite morning playlist songs.
“Fearless” by Taylor Swift
“Another Day” by Jamie Lidell
“Holiday” by Madonna
“A New Day Has Come” by Celine Dion
“Proud” by Heather Small
One of my favorite songs!
“Get On Your Feet” by Gloria Estefan
“Everything” by Michael Buble
“My Love Is Your Love” by Whitney Houston
Your playlist should be at least 10 minutes long to be effective and give your mind time to let go of your bad mood.
Listen to your morning playlist while you shower and get ready, while eating breakfast, or during your commute.
Now, that’s starting your day off on the right note! (Sorry, I couldn’t help it.)
