8. Listening to your favorite music can help improve positivity
Music can affect us emotionally, and although you can listen to music which can make you sad, you can also listen to music that can promote a happy mood. It’s proven that listening to music can trigger the release of large amounts of dopamine into the brain. Dopamine is the body’s “feel good” chemical that can help reinforce positive thinking. There is also proof that music therapy is a useful alternative therapy for treating depression.
What to do: Choose music that makes you feel happy, and try to listen to music when exercising. This can help the release of endorphins which increases your endurance and mood.
