Are you a music lover? What’s your favorite music genre? Well regardless what genre, artist, or even age of the song you want there is something common in them. Music brings happiness.
Music is one of the best quick-fire tools to promote happiness in your day when you feel that you have fallen off-track. It is going to take a little bit of work and effort to set up, but once you’ve got it, it will be one of the quickest ways for you to realign yourself when you use this trigger.
Music, as you know, can affect our mood and you can use this to your advantage. There are apparently songs that can lower or lift your mood and extend a euphoric feeling afterwards.
So, a good start would you be to identify songs that can shift your mood. Music that lifts you in such a way, that makes you feel really happy, will make you feel like dancing, sing-along, all of those feelings.
Then the next step is to create a list on paper or your iPhone or iPod so that you can create a playlist for yourself, for example, the top 10 feel-good, upbeat, uplift songs.
Of course, the matter would be to have them available on your device, which is so easy these days, so you have a playlist ready to go when you need.
If you can just identify these songs in a written list or your memory, you have them ready in your head to sing, and this will lift you up, even if you can’t play them, you can hum along, sing out loud or just listen in silence for yourself. You could also have such a beautiful voice and affect the people that are around you as well.
So, nothing should stop you from using this list and play to cheer you up. The reason this is called a trigger is, the idea that it will trigger your happiness from whatever mood you come.
So when it gets you down, use this trigger where ever you are to boost your mood. The trick is to notice when your mood has taken a turn to go down and make the decision, remember this is all about choice, about your power, make the decision you want to feel better and use this your tool.
It is already an insurance to know that there are songs ready in your head, or in one of your devices that you can put to use anytime to cheer you up.
Believe me, it is a much tried and proven tool that you are going to enjoy.
Of course, if you had a horrible day perhaps it won’t send you directly into a blissful state, but it will lift your mood. From this elevated mood, you can make a better decision and choose your response in a more balanced way and take ownership of your emotions and how you feel.
You can also share this with your friends and the people who are around you so eventually they too will participate.
Music is after all an elixir of the soul.
