How many times have you been stuck in traffic frustrated and all of sudden a good song comes up on the radio and you forget about the traffic. Or during the holiday season, you walk into a mall and Christmas music is playing. Suddenly, it puts you in that “holiday-season-mood.” Not to mention that it motivates you to SHOP!
I am a true believer that music sets the tone for pretty much everything. Music has that “Invisible Power” to control emotions. A great example is movies. In a horror movie, the music pretty much dictates the pace of your emotions. When you hear a certain tune, you know that something is going to happen.
As a graphic designer, listening to music while working gives me that boost I need for the day. It sets a nice working pace where ideas flow smoother and keeps me in a positive state of mind. A great song puts you in a good mood and that translates into positive energy. It seems like music and creativity join forces to enhance your soul.
One morning on your way to work, try turning off your favorite morning talk show and instead play some Sade, Barry White, Mariah Carey, Journey, Smashing Pumpkins, Rhianna, Tiësto, Nirvana, Kanye West, Bob Marley or any of your favorite artists. Let the “invisible power” of music be your therapy.
