How It Works

Music has always been a love of mine, whether it was playing an instrument or listening to the radio. It has always been my "go-to" in times I've needed soothing, stress-relief or a pick-me-up. Over the years, it has also been a fun and amazing way to bond with my kids. More recently, I've started to incorporate music into my work day as a way to relieve tension, clear my head, re-energize or just a simple break to squeeze in some me-time.

For a typical work day, I designate a set amount of time per project. When that time is up, I take a music break. Now I have to say, I work from home, so LOUD is the only volume I know! I have my favorite playlist of songs that always perk me up and often find a song or two is just what I need to stretch, re-energize and transition to the next project. I have found that this small effort every hour or two has improved my mood, productivity and creativity. If only it could help improve my dance skills....

I love this tip and also blast the music to boost my mood. I really discovered the power of music to change one’s “state” at a Tony Robbins conference. He is a big advocate and for good reason!
