Day 25: Finding a Good Mood



How do you put yourself in a good mood?  Do you have any tips or tricks that get you every time?

Brave by Sara Bareillis

For me, a sure fire way to find my way to a good mood is to crank up the tunes and to sing along.  It doesn't necessarily have to be a certain kind of music.  My only requirements are that I know the words so I can sing along and, well, I have to like it!

Fight Song by Rachael Platten

This is what I did today when the girls were whining.  I turned on the computer, fired up Spotify, and sang my heart out. 

Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys

You might be thinking, is that it?  That's the big secret?  No, but it went well with completing a blog post, finishing up my report cards a few days early (Yay me!), sending the girls outside to play in the sunshine, starting a refreshing scent going in the diffuser, and sipping on a nice drink.  Oh, and the chocolate frosted brownie with chocolate chips inside might have helped a little too.  :)

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran

If you are a Spotify user, or want to download it, here is the link to my Sing Along playlist.  This was my jam today...maybe you will like it too!  1 hour 25 minutes of listening pleasure.

Piano Man by Billy Joel

What are your tricks for finding a good mood?

  2. I agree! I sometimes get in my car, tune up the radio and drive somewhere just so I can sing my blues away!! :-)

  3. I have a "get up and clean" playlist on iTunes. It works wonders. We all have the same mission and we are all happily dancing and singing with a little bit of cleaning in between. Another upside, the music is so loud I can't hear anyone's complaints if there are any.

  5. Music may have played a part in getting me out of a funk today. I was grouchy today! And TIRED! I think this past week took everything out of me and I finally let myself be a little irritated about it. Lol! I love how music can make things seem all better.

  6. First of all I am jealous of the fact that you have report cards done! Today I cranked up the tunes in my truck, rolled down the windows and raked and raked and raked until I was sweating but it was refreshing. I was singing along with the tunes unlike you though my tastes lean toward the country side. :) Tunes help a lot! and now I am going to work on my report cards!
