Some of these findings are illustrated by researchers such as Dr Harry Witchel from the Department of Physiology at Bristol University or Dr. Harald Gruber in Bonn, or Yuna Ferguson from the University of Missouri, who has stated that people can improve their moods in just two weeks simply by listening to upbeat music.
For this reason it's a good idea to have a store of music (or song lists on whatever device you like to use), that will allow you to access different moods simply by listening to your carefully chosen lists. In my case there are songs that may mean nothing to you (as it appears to often be the case according to the research), but they do mean much to me. And it may be that those specific songs that create similar moods in me, may nevertheless not appear to be similar types of music at all. That is irrelevant. The results are what counts.
It was Emory Austin who said: some days there won't be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. And as it turns out, not only was he right, but simply by making yourself do something like this, you will already have won half the battle to improve whatever it is that is not right - at least in your inner state. And of course this is another way of loving yourself. You choose.
