Can happy music help to improve your mood?
Well, have you ever found yourself listening to an upbeat song, and suddenly want to get up and dance to the music? Or have you found that you want to listen to sad songs when you are down low?
Well, then research findings from the University of Missouri won’t surprise you. Listening to happy upbeat music can make you happier, at least for a small amount of time. Read more about the research at psychcentral. Music is also used in therapy.
The researchers actually used more classical forms of happy music. But I am sure there are happy songs you can think of too. Accentuate the positive is a song my English teacher taught us in the middle of a busy exam season. “You have gotta accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, don’t mess with Mr inbetween”. I hope it gets your toes tapping too.
Why don’t you find some songs that make you happy and add it to your playlist today?
