Happy Monday Motivation!

One of the things that I love is music.  Music fuels my soul. It makes me smile. I can’t live a day without it!

One of the main reasons why I love music is because it is universal. It evokes an emotion. It evokes a feeling regardless of whether you understand the words or not. It can boost your mood instantly if it has the right beat and pace. YES TO THE YING TIP: Music actually releases dopamine (the happy chemical in your brain) when you listen to it. Who doesn’t want a little dose of happiness? Music is my little happy pill!

Whenever I am feeling down in the dumps, I like to play songs that energize me and push me to get out of bed. Not wanting to exercise or go to work or get that project done? Try listening to some upbeat songs and feel your “I don’t wanna”s turn into “Let’s do this!”
