This is because there is a very powerful link between music and mood. Though this has not been entirely explained, scientists are continuing to uncover bits and pieces of how this is occurring right down to a neural level. Their studies are starting to prove that the types of songs that we listen to engage a broad spectrum of different neurobiological response that have a direct impact on our own psychology.
What this means is that no matter what you may want to accomplish in your life, the music that you choose to accompany your efforts along the way can have a considerable impact on how easy or difficult it will be, how energized you are to accomplish it, and what level of emotional struggle you will face.
Playing the right songs can help you in virtually every area, from encouraging you to achieve a solid night’s sleep to motivating you to get out of bed early and exercise first thing in the morning, or even to be able to control your eating so that you will be able to lose weight.
The trick is to be able to find exactly the right songs for you in order to be able to align what you are hearing with what you want to do at that specific moment. There is no single song or style of music that is appropriate for every moment. For example, while you may want to listen to a song with a rapid beat so that you can keep up the rhythm while you work out, that is hardly the same tune that you will want to hear when you are winding down for bed in the evening.
Furthermore, just because a song has the right theme, it doesn’t mean that it will produce the right response within you. Everybody has their own unique responses to music, so you will need to find the music that has the right characteristics but that also appeals to your own personal taste so that it will affect you in the way that you want.
