Day 1: Create your ultimate “High Spirits” playlist

June 1, 2012 by  
Filed under 90 Day Challenge

Today’s song of the day is Friday I’m In Love by the Cure.  You can pick up the mp3 at, or slide by the Facebook page and watch the video there.  It’s good for what ails you! (Make sure you “like” our page to keep up to date on our goings on)!

So here we are on day one of our 90 Day Challenge, and I’m coming to you with something nice and simple to eeeeaaasssseeeee us into the process of actively changing our lives.

I want you to put together a playlist of a *minimum* of 5 songs that make you happy, lift your spirits and get your heart pumping!  Then, I want you to post your playlist in the comments of this post.

Not so bad, right? Where you worried that I was going to hit you with an hour of meditation?  Or maybe skydiving? Don’t worry…we still have 89 days left…who knows what I have in store!

Anyway, back to the music.  “They” say music sooths the savage beast…but when you’ve spent too long stunting your Moxie, the *last thing* you need is soothing.  You need to light a fire under your bum.  You need a bit of a shake up, and music is the gateway…ummmmm….drug?  Well, you know what I mean.  So spend a few minutes today figuring out what your favourite “High Spirits” tunes are, and then share them here.

And from now on, when you get *those* feelings. Those yucky, tight pit of the stomach feelings that leave you anxious and panicky or dull and lackluster, you break out that playlist, crank it up to 11 and kick your mood right back up where it belongs.

5 Songs that bring you joy.  You deserve that much, right?  You can let yourself do that much?  Something special for little ol’ you?

I knew you could.


PS.  Pllleeeeaaaasssseeee come back and share your playlist here in the comments below.  We could *all* use more happy music in our lives!

PPS.  *whispers*  There’s A Mission Award associated with this challenge.  ;)

PPPS.  *whispers even more quietly* There *may* be a secret award assiciated with this challenge as well.  But you didn’t hear it from me.
