Music makes everything better. This is the phrase that has been running through my head these last few weeks, so I thought I would let you all in on my secret. Whether it is sunny or cloudy outside, whether I am happy or sad, music always tends to right my mood.
This phrase has been in my mind because I’ve forgotten it until recently. I’d come home after a long commute and a long day at the office feeling exhausted. Turning on the TV to snuggle with my husband was more enjoyable than dance class or drinks with friends or even working on the blog. I told myself this was all ok, that this is what I needed to do to recharge. Funny thing was, I didn’t feel recharged. I felt even more tired.
So, instead of TV, I decided to turn on the tunes as soon as I walked through the door. And I just started singing and dancing. I even dragged A with me dancing through the kitchen. We read with music. We checked email with music. We did laundry with music. We cooked dinner with music. And not surprisingly, I felt relaxed and recharged even before going to bed. Music I tell you – it is my secret sauce.
This week, when you even start to feel a little less like your best self, turn on the tunes and dance!
