Music is a piece of art that goes in the ears straight to the heart.
Everyone is different, so the music that makes one person happy may not do it for someone else. For me, sometimes the happy-go-lucky vibe doesn’t do much for my mood when I’m stressed out. I find that sometimes, I personally just need to rock out my hard feelings. For that type of mood, I move toward bands like Tool, Metallica, System of a Down, and that genre. (Much different than Hakuna Matata — but it works!) It’s all about finding what works for you — something that resonates with you and expresses the feelings and works them through you.
Get into the habit of listening to your happy songs playlist any time you feel you need a little pick-me-up, and you and the people around you will notice a positive change in your attitude almost instantly.
