Listening to good music can make you happy
There’s a simple piece of advice that we need to go with all day long, in order to fight against the ‘imagination’ that makes every effort to constantly emphasize all the problems and fill our head with worry:
Listen to lots of happy music.
As much as you can, listen to or sing happy songs.
Songs come from a very high place, and the happiness they bring turns around the stress, relaxes our thoughts, and brings in some fresh air to release the pressure. Happy music turns our thoughts around and makes them positive and pleasant.
