A Song Can Make All The Difference

Waking up in the morning is hard.  Especially when you are working late into the night and not getting nearly enough sleep, which I am sure many of you suffer from just as I do.  That alarm going off in the morning has to be my least favorite sound in the world.

But tonight my daughter gave me an awesome idea.  I was complaining about how worn out I was and how I was not looking forward to getting up early tomorrow morning early for a big charity event my foundation is putting on.  Ashley said, “Have your favorite song play as your alarm – it makes all the difference.”  She went on to explain that the other day her alarm went off as it does every morning, but this particular morning it just so happened to be playing her very favorite song.  She said that her mood started out awesome because that song made her feel happy right out of the gate.  Such a simple thing that made a huge impact to the start of her day.

What a great idea!  I wish I had thought of it sooner myself!  Music is always the perfect pick me up for my life.  I love to dance and I love fun, happy music.  So why not start my day with a song that makes me happy and makes me want to get up and dance!?  So tomorrow I intend to have my favorite song playing for my alarm because heaven knows I will need a pick me up in the morning after my late night working tonight.

In case you need a few ideas of fun happy songs to wake up to, here are a few.  Otherwise, use the song that makes you happiest in life as your alarm clock.

“Happy” by Pharrell

“Walking on Sunshine” – Katrina and the Waves

“Ahhh Zabenyaa  – the circle of life” – from Lion King Soundtrack

 “Beautiful Day”  – U2

“The Lazy Song” – Bruno Mars (this one probably isn’t the best message to get first thing in the morning if you are looking to have a productive day, but it could be great for a Saturday wakeup song 🙂 )

HAPPY MORNING TOMORROW! May you wake up to a great song that makes you happy 🙂

    I love to listen my very own child’s music Bianca Merkley because her songs are all design to give you a lift and inspire you. Give it a listen and you’ll see what I mean. Your post reminded me of a time I used to get my daughter up for early seminary.
