It has been several weeks since we’ve been indoors, and it really starts to take a toll on you. In this blog post we want to share with you some music videos to put a smile on your face. We hope you enjoy them!!
Songs to Wake Up
Happy from Pharrell Williams - This song is great to play in the morning to get you up with a smile. Feel free to clap along. Even if you don’t want to, put on a big smile on your face. Research says that the physical act of smiling will get you in a better mood.
"Just Fine" by Mary J. Blige
This upbeat song is full of empowering lyrics like “I like what I see when I walk pass the mirror”. Feel free to dance a little in front of the mirror. :-)
"Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina & The Waves
If you can go out for a walk or even just getting near an open window can make you feel alot better. Maybe you want to put on your sunniest shirt or dress to feel like you are walking on sunshine!
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper
Just because most of us are inside, let’s face it, we still want to have fun. This song is a fun reminder of what it was like to be a young rebellious girl. Take out a photo album and think of all the great times with friends. Sometimes it's good to reminisce. Then call a friend you may not have talked with in a while.
Ricky Martin - Livin' La Vida Loca
Here is a song that you probably haven’t heard in a while, but who can resist that beat? You too can live your version of Livin’ la vida loca. Next time it rains, go dancing in it or stick your hands in it. :-)
Songs to Fall Asleep With
“Can't Help Falling In Love”
This acoustic version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” originally from Elvis Presley, serves as the background music for a beautiful scene in the movie “Crazy Rich Asians”. People in love just give us a reason to smile.
Because the original version was also amazing here it is too.
"I'm Like a Bird" by Nelly Furtado
“You are beautiful that’s for sure” is the opening lyric of this freeing song from Nelly Furtado. You can close your eyes and imagine yourself as a bird flying high in the air. Take in several deep breaths and with each exhale let go of any anxiety and worries.
Somewhere over the Rainbow - Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole
This is the iconic song from The Wizard of Oz that gave millions of people hope during the Great Depression. In this version, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole gives a really sweet touch with his Ukulele and mellow voice. The singer passed away at an early age, but this tribute to hope lives on
Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful world ( 1967 ) - I have loved this song my whole life. It is a certain happiness that actually makes me want to cry, but in a good way. It is a reminder that this is a wonderful world despite its challenges.
Stand by Me - John Lennon
“If the mountains should crumble to the sea, I won’t cry, I won’t shed a tear. Just as long as you stand by me” We will make it through this and many other obstacles. Know that you are not alone. There is always someone to stand by you in person or in spirit. Lean on your faith, your family, and your friends.
