Want to feel happier?  Scientists have proven that music can impact mood and change how we view the world.   Our brain builds up expectations based on experience and also mood, so listening to sad music can make us feel sad, and playing happy music can make us feel happy.

As we experience happy emotions, they broaden and build, leading to more happy emotions.  Also, emotions are contagious, so your happiness can lift the moods of others.  In a social network study, when exposure to positive content was reduced, friends’ posts showed more negative content and with reduction of negative content, friend’s posts showed more positive content.  So, when wanting to feel happier, use our Happy Songs to find your smile, build positive emotions, inspire new dance moves for you and others, and sing through workouts …
