Got the blues or heading into a serious depression well friends try this:
Make up a tape of your fav songs not just ones you like but ones that make you sing out loud and dance ( or at least attempt to, I speak from experience although I think I do cut a pretty good rug, now umm,…where was I?)
And go for a walk or bike ride in the am, this will set the tone for the day- try it you’ll like it. And it does work.
Here are a few musical leads ,
My current tape has,
“Needle in a Haystack ” The Velvettes
“Carmen ” From Bizet’s opera
Michael Jcakson reggae mix of “One more chance “
Levon Helm (Of The Band) ” Only Halfway Home”
“La Vie En Rose ” Grace Jones version
Kings of Leon “Use Somebody”
“Delta Lady” Leon Russell
“You Got Me Smiling(Again)” Sly and The Family Stone
Peter Gabriel “In Your Eyes”
“Some Kinda Wonderful” Sam and Dave
“Thirty One Today” Aimee Mann
“Rockabilly Silly” Not sure who sings it is a great song
and so on and so forth-it is a long tape!
(Thanks to Tony Robbins for the seed idea for this tip, Thanks Tony)
Don’t worry about the neighbor’s stare when you dance across the church parking lot on your walk, one way to avoid this is to leave at 5 am, as I do, kinda quiet then!
