Who motivates the motivator? The power of music

If you're studying for a qualification, or just need to kick start your day, have you ever thought about how the music in your life can make a difference?

Don’t knock it!

Have you ever said to someone that certain music ‘puts you in the mood’ or found yourself singing along in the car to a well known song on the radio?

Music is a great way to help you get in the mood for just about any occasion - true or false?

The only way to find out is to experiment a bit. Don’t just stick with what you know. Be adventurous, listen to things that you wouldn’t usually hear. Change the rhythm from predictable sounds, to unfamiliar ones to stimulate your creative side.

What about the lyrics? Words can distract if you’re trying to get into a particular frame of mind. Try listening to instrumentals as an aid to relaxation. Music you like can make you feel good. Music you don’t like, won’t.

Trust your instincts and turn off music that leaves you feeling flat – instead go with what you like and helps you get off to a flying start. When you feel good in the morning, it will set you up for the rest of the day.

Give it a try – instead of the usual news channels, listen to some uplifting music. If you’re inspired, just imagine how much better you’ll be able to inspire others - and yourself!
