Sad Songs, Happy Campers

Way to go!   (Photo by Barry Goyette)
Feeling a bit down?  Turn up the volume on some sad songs.  This may also turn up your frowns into smiles.

Erin Brodwin of Business Insider reported on a study of 722 people the world over.  Results indicated that listening to sad songs helped generate cheerful emotions. Such songs provided consolation and regulated negative feelings.

While bellowing sad lyrics, you might wish to add these activities:  dancing (moving has been linked with grooving), getting outdoors (nature is a great healer),
listing things you are grateful for (an attitude of gratitude), and smiling for real (at the singer’s clever nuances).

There now, doesn’t that feel a whole lot better?
