Happy Saturday!

It's time to Rewild: Return to our Original Innocence & Energy

When was the last time you really enjoyed a song?

If you need more energy, been feeling low, or just need a good ol’ reset, consider playing some music you love, and let your brain get a tune-up.

Studies reveal that our favorite songs light up the brain's pleasure center, triggering a rush of "feel-good" chemicals like dopamine and serotonin. The better the song, the more our brain bathes in these happy neurotransmitters, giving us a natural high similar to what cocaine does 😳 [1] [2]

What are your five fave songs – the ones that get you MOVING!? πŸ•ΊπŸ½ Play one right now! We dare you!

Do you put up with any ol’ music?

Like most of us, we’re always so busy and focused on getting somewhere. It can be hard to slow down and enjoy the journey of our life!

Using music – particularly your fave music – can be a great reminder to slow down and enjoy the journey – and not just be on hold until you get to your destination.

Take the time when you jump in the car, or when you’re making breakfast, or when you’re watering the backyard – to turn on your fave songs!

When was the last time you played, or danced, or sang, or lip synced, or pranced to your favorite songs? No matter how long ago that was, consider today might be a GREAT day to get high on your musical supply!

The Power of Music, Science Says

Our favorite songs stimulate the brain's pleasure circuit, releasing dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and other neurochemicals that make us feel good. The more we like a song, the more we enjoy this neurochemical bliss. [1]

Listening to our favorite songs, the ones intertwined with our personal memories, can activate our prefrontal cortex. This activation triggers delightful feelings of nostalgia and happiness. [2]

The Music of Our Teen Years Have Magic The music we hear as teenagers creates strong emotional connections in our brains due to rapid neurological development between ages 12 and 22, influenced by neurological processes, pubertal hormones, and the intertwining of music with our social identities in our formative years. [3]

Time to ReWild 🐺

Workout Your Huge Wild Heart

Create a Playlist that's as powerful as a Painkiller πŸ’Š

  1. Get out whatever app, device, thing you play music on. For many of us that’s Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music or Pandora.
  2. Start by searching for the 5 favorite songs you listed above. Add them to your own playlist.
  3. Now let those songs trigger you into other favorites. Your streaming service may prompt you with similar songs – review them to find other songs you love.
  4. Keep going until you have an hour or so of music. Great job! You know have a playlist that’s as powerful as medication. Scientifically. The next time you feel down, or have a headache, or need a boost – reach for this playlist instead of a drink or an advil!
Pro Tip: Go through a list of all the hits for the years when you were 12 - 22. The songs you fell in love with during these years have the greatest amount of neuro-chemical power for you.
Just google: β€œbillboard hottest 100 [and the year when you were 12]” etc.
Example: β€œbillboard hottest 100 1990” - view results
