Mmmm hmmm. We see you over there at your desk, leaning all over on your hand, staring at the screen like you’re in a coma. We know it’s blah outside, and work is probably not the most fun thing you’ve ever done in your life.
SNAP OUT OF IT. Let’s put some focus and inspiration into your day! A positive attitude and a smile will help the day go by faster, no matter what kind of work you’re doing.
How can you turn that frown upside down? Try adding a little music to your life. You know, those songs on your playlist that make you dance when you’re washing the dishes. The ones that make you run a little faster on the treadmill. Music makes you feel better. Science proves it: It can make you happier, and reduce blood pressure, heart rate and anxiety.
So turn it up! Here are a few of our favorites that might get your toes tapping.
