Music is amazing, isn’t it? It gets us excited about our day and it helps us feel when we can’t express our emotions. Listening to music is usually something positive and can help us in more ways than we know. Here are some reason you should listen to more music.

When I need to get something done, listening to music always helps. I turn on my favorite upbeat songs and I’m good to go. Not everyone finds motivation in music, but I sure do. Music is often the ONLY thing that gets me kicked into gear to get out and do some exercising!


There are several times in life that I have just needed to listen to music to help me express my emotions. Not every song helps me to work through my emotions, but some do!


When I need to get some work done quickly, I turn up the music and jam out. There are certain songs that I have labeled as my work music. When this is on, I know it’s time to get work done. People have used music for ages to help them get stuff done.

Let’s face it, sometimes it’s just awesome to listen to music for the fun of it. Music speaks to our hearts and our souls. Listening to music in our cars or at home is a way to zone out and enjoy life a little.

I won’t ever hear “What a Wonderful World” without remembering the dance I shared at my wedding with my grampa.

There are some songs that remind us of a point in our life. Maybe a song reminds you of your mom or your dad or of a special memory. Songs have a way of pulling those memories out of our hearts. Any song about dads, daughters, fathers? I’m a mushy mess.
