Don't let the cold and darker days get you down. If you're finding it hard to get yourself moving and your mood could do with a lift, it might be time to plug in your iPod and create a new playlist titled: Mood Enhancers!
Don't get down, get these great songs!
Music is such a personal thing. Not only do we all have our own taste and style in music, but certain songs will always trigger thoughts of momentous occasions or specific memories in your own history. Think back through your life and try to remember the occasions that made you laugh or smile. What year was it? What kind of music was on the charts during that time? Think back to your old CD/Cassette (or heaven forbid) your vinyl collection? Can you recall any albums that moved the earth for you? Perhaps there really is a soundtrack to our lives?
While you are cruising iTunes or your local music store searching for the playlist to end the mother of all bad moods, here's our pick of ten songs to lift you up again. Remember, these are only generic suggestions, feel free to scratch out songs and insert your own. If you're into heavy metal or you are a die-hard country music fan, perhaps this isn't the list for you!
