Bob Marley’s lyrics from Trenchtown Rock said it best, “One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain”. Whether the lyrics remind you to have a good time, get up and dance, or just appreciate the people around you, a quality tune can change your mood for the better.



The inspirational meanings in music give positive messages to motivate. Music actually triggers an emotional response in our brains. In fact, therapists use music as a mood-altering therapy for depressed or anxious patients. Uplifting music activates the release of hormones like serotonin and norepinephrine, a hormone that promotes happiness. It also increases levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that makes people feel good.

So if you’re feeling blue, put on some good tunes. From classic favorites to more recent upbeat jams, start the week on the right foot with this list of feel-good songs.
