Detoxing From Negative Music
For the past couple of months, I've been experimenting with listening to different genres of music and have noticed a significant impact on my energy and overall mood.
While I usually gravitate towards hip hop and R&B, I've found that switching things up to include more country, R&B, and rock has improved my mood and made me feel more positive.
In this post, I'll delve into the ways that music can affect our mood and perception, as well as share my own experience with incorporating different types of music into my daily routine.
The link between music and mood
It's no secret that music has the power to affect our moods and emotions.
That's why we have workout playlists, songs to listen to when we're feeling down, and tunes to get us pumped up for a party.
Different types of music can elicit different emotions and put us in different moods.
My experience with music genres
Recently, I've been cutting back on music that has violent or sexual themes, and instead opting for more positive or laid back genres like R&B, country, indie, and alternative.
The shift in my music choices has had a noticeable impact on my energy levels and overall mood.
I've even noticed that the music I listen to can affect my driving habits and perception of the world around me.
Being mindful of the music we listen to
While our personalities and genetics play a role in how we act and perceive the world, the environment and stimuli around us can also have a significant impact. That includes the music we listen to on a daily basis.
By being mindful of the types of music we allow into our lives, we can improve our mood, energy, and perception of the world.
Music is a powerful force that can shape our moods and perceptions in ways we might not even realize.
By being conscious of the types of music we listen to and incorporating more positive or laid back genres, we can improve our overall mood and experience of the world around us.
Whether you're a fan of hip hop, rock, or anything in between, consider the impact that music has on your mood and make choices that will enhance your daily life.
