Live, Love, Laugh and Listen to Feel Good Music
"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything." -Plato
The beauty of music is that it can have such a profound effect on our body, mind and soul especially when it comes to dealing with stress. It can make us feel sexy, enlightened, empowered, hopeful, calm. Music can make us feel... well, free!
With that in mind, go ahead... listen to that song that stirs up a passion for life. As you approach your day play something optimistic, and unwind at the end of that day with something smooth and relaxing to ease your mind.
