In our previous posts, we mentioned the positive impacts that music can have on your brain and overall body chemistry by improving your mood, reducing your stress, and helping you become more productive. It’s a no brainer that people should be listening to music throughout the day, but the big question is how to make this happen.
Jam Out on Your Commute
An easy way to mix in a little music is to jam out on the car ride to work. Whether you’re ride is only a few blocks away, or you’re traveling an hour to get to work, this is a great time to begin and end your day. Whether you own your own company, or you’re trying to climb the corporate ladder, music will elevate your mood and enthusiasm to attack the day with positivity.
Sing in the Shower
The average time for showing in the United States is nearly 10 minutes. This time is a great opportunity to turn on your favorite playlist and enjoy some music while showering. Whether it’s to start your day, or right before bedtime, this time with your favorite songs can be exactly what you need to get off on the right foot, or end your day on a positive note.
Make Chores Fun Again
The only way to get through a day of cleaning is by blasting some music throughout the house. Without music, then chores are just boring, and most likely won’t get completely done. With a little bit of music in the background, you’ll be amazed at how much work you can get done around the house. Whether it’s landscaping the front yard, cleaning the windows, or sweeping the floor, a little bit of music will go a long way.
Playing some of your favorite tunes will help put you in a better mood, which will make cleaning just a tad better. If you do this once, you’ll never want to go back to cleaning the house without music to help get you through the chores.
It’s important to make a conscious effort to include at least 10 minutes of music into your daily routines. You’ll find yourself more cheerful, less stressed and anxious, and your spirits will be lifted to take on the challenges that the day brings.
