This Wednesday we’re listening to something more useful than usual (I hope).
Jack from VeganWeekly (an awesome newsletter full of unique vegan flavors), asked me a while ago about what kind of music I like to listen to while cooking. That’s when I realized I haven’t got any particular playlist dedicated to it, or for doing any other type of housework 🤔.
As anyone who’s ever done housework knows, it may not be the most exciting task in the world. But there are ways to make it more bearable - and even enjoyable. One of the best ways is to listen to music while you do the laundry or clean the bathroom. Music can have a powerful effect on our mood and energy levels. Upbeat, fast-paced music can give us a much-needed boost when we’re feeling low. It can make us feel more alert and motivated, and can even help us to work more efficiently.
So why does music have such power? Studies have shown that music can increase dopamine levels in the brain 🧠, which is associated with pleasure and motivation. Listening to music can also help to increase coordination and focus, both of which can come in handy when tackling household chores. Not to mention, music can simply make the time fly by, making even the most tedious of tasks feel less like a chore.
When it comes to dealing with my chores the first thing I do is select music. I listen to my current faves, all-timers, or the local student’s radio Kampus. That often meant searching through all of my playlists to find the most energetic songs, or doing breaks in work to change the tune. Thanks to Jack 🙏, I no longer need to waste time doing it. Inspired by his question, I made a megamix that combines all of the current energetic faves in one playlist. It’s a total mashup of different vibes - from The Naked And Famous, through Etta James, to Billy Idol etc., including this cheerful banger:
So next time you’re facing a pile of laundry or a sink full of dishes, don’t reach for the coffee pot 🚫☕️. Put on your dancing shoes and let the power of music from this playlist give you the boost you need:
Listen on Spotify | Listen on YouTube
Let me know if this issue resonates with you, and what’s your current favorite banger:
Have an awesome day!
It certainly zips up a walk round and round the garden (hoping to be less like a teddy bear) :D
