I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than a Sunday filled with tunes. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in day-to-day stuff – cooking, cleaning, working, parenting, blah, blah, blah… stopping for five minutes to turn on your Bluetooth, connect your speaker and select a playlist that matches your feels of the day can make the difference to the day’s outcome.
Just like buses, all the pressures of life came tumbling down on us when we went into Lockdown 3.0. In my case, one of the only things to naturally balance me out is music.
Music is dubbed the language of the soul, and I would have to completely agree. I have a naturally old soul and an appreciation for the classics, so music has a true sentimental value in my world. I know I’m not the only one whose memories are triggered by tunes. Being mentally teleported to a special moment in time is an experience like no other. Even when music takes me back to more challenging periods in my life (hello heartbreak hotel), I still value that connection because it’s part of what makes me who I am today.
I’m an endorphin junkie, and music is one way I get my fix. If you’re ever feeling low, I can’t recommend enough exploring music as a method for uplifting your spirit. It’s not just in our heads; music has a deep impact on our emotional and physical wellbeing as countless studies have shown, so it’s no wonder we keep our favourite tracks on repeat (as of right now, ‘Focus’ by H.E.R. is the bane of my family’s existence lol). Whether you choose something soothing, or big beats level you out, enjoy the moment, let the weight fall off your shoulders and get carried away.
Here’s a perfect Sunday Soul playlist for you to enjoy today (you can’t say I don’t look after you!)
Today, let music form part of your wellness journey.
Sending light and love always.
