Nothing speaks to our emotions as strongly as music. A fun way to engage with your emotions and switch your mindset or mood to a more productive, positive, or relaxed one is to make a playlist of songs and music that capture the mood you want to experience.
If you want to relax, make a soothing playlist that will allow you to drift off somewhere. If you’re going out and want to overcome any nerves or shyness, make a playlist with fun, upbeat, and empowering tracks.
Which song first comes to mind for you? I might choose Shania Twain’s “I Ain’t No Quitter”. Playing music can quickly help switch your mindset and give you a way of accessing self-made empowerment at any time.
The playlist can be as highbrow or as cheesy as you like; no one but you need listen to it. I rather embarrassingly like world renowned classical music conductor Bobby McFerrin’s 1988 hit “Don’t Worry, be Happy”.
So, we at Give YourSelf Permission are compiling a Happy (video) Song Playlist over on our Facebook page. Come on over and add your favourite “happy” song to the list!
