Music: No Need to Turn to Sugar, Drugs, Booze, Etc. When Soothing, Uplifting Tunes Can Lift Your Spirits

Miss_saigon_41nxhr1fhdl__sl160_aa11As I’m sitting here faced by an almost non-stop, ferocious, crushing Lyme disease-induced headache, which makes sleep virtually impossible, I’m easily riding it through, thanks to the fabulous tunes of "Miss Saigon" to which I’m now listening.

Which leads me to ask those of you who are suffering with bad habits: Why turn to sugar, drugs, alcohol and other horrible substances or self-destructive pursuits when music can salve and soothe your soul?

Try it sometime. Turn on tunes instead of rushing to self-defeating behavior. (You know what they are for you.)

Now, I invite you to learn about the benefits of music to lift depression. Just read Tara Parker-Pope’s intriguing story, which she posted earlier this year in the Well blog of the New York Times.

Acclaimed author Connie Bennett—who people call The Cravings Crusher™—is the internationally recognized bestselling author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012). One or both books were praised Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Mark Hyman and many others. For 17 years—since kicking sweets and processed carbs on doctor’s orders due to her 44 baffling ailments—Connie has been guiding people to joyously ditch their sugar or carb addiction. Now, she is completing her next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ (publication date TBA), which she was inspired to write in late 2012, when she was pounced on by her own dangerous Crazy Cravings after her mother’s heartbreaking, traumatizing terminal illness and death. Each week in 2016, on her blog (www.ConnieB.com) Cravings-Crushing Mondays, Connie will share fast, super-simple, science-based secrets she has created or discovered during her three-plus year investigation of the subject.
