Community Comes Together To Lift People’s Spirits, The Result Was Music To People’s Ears

Study after study has confirmed the connection between music and mood. Many finding that listening to music you enjoy increases pleasure in the brain and decreases stress

With folks feeling the tension of 2020 and most recently reports of fireworks disrupting their peace and quiet every night

So we asked our Growthhaxx community of Creatives to share what they listen to, what helps them unwind, create.

The result was this beautiful and ongoing mix of everything that’ll help you relax after a long day, set the mood for your evening, and give your brain much needed peace.

Think about it for a second, when you’re feeling good – you bump some music

When working, I have my Flow State playlist

When you’re sad – you listen to slower, soothing music, to help you process

When you’re celebrating, marking an occasion or just driving around

“Studies have found that listening to music you enjoy may increase the release of pleasure-causing substances in the brain like norepinephrine and melatonin. It may also decrease stress-causing hormone production in the body. As a result, music therapy has the power to do the following:”

• Reduce stress/ease anxiety

• Improve sleep

• Lessen depressed mood

• Create positive mood

• Boost self-confidence

• Increase energy

While things aren’t going to get better overnight, it’s not only better to embrace reality, but to proactively take steps to improve your quality of life, and what better way than to turn up the music, close your eyes and enjoy yourself 😎

Here’s to escaping average 🤙
