Soothing Tunes to Calm You As You Face Anything: What Are Your Favorites?

Posted on

If you’re going through a challenging, stressful or upsetting time, one of the best ways to rise above the situation is to soothe yourself with melodies that calm and comfort you.
Forget comfort foods that send you into Sugar Shock. They don’t work!
Music is one of the most exhilarating ways to achieve this serenity and peacefulness. (Meditation works, of course, too. More about that later.)
So help me compile a list of Soothing Tunes.
For instance, the title Hans Zimmer soundtrack from the film, Gladiator, with the talented Russell Crowe as Maximus, is one of my favorite melodies. Doesn’t it evoke a feeling of triumph in you?
So what are your favorite Comfort Tunes (not Comfort Foods, of course)?
(Usually, I don’t care to share anything personal here, but please know that I have two reasons I’m seeking Comfort Tunes. Of course, my first goal is to help you, because I know music can soothe you in a way that food or other addictions can. Secondly, I’m facing a very trying situation, and I’m seeking to arm myself with a number of powerful, potent tactics to get me through this easily. One of the ways to sail through such pain is with the help of magical melodies.)
Please submit your ideas for Magical Melodies and Soothing Tunes.

Posted on

Do you listen every day to certain musical favorites that make you feel powerful, centered and motivated?
Here are a few tunes that encourage and uplift me, which I’ve been listening to while writing my next book, Beyond Sugar Shock (for Hay House).
More specifically, I boogie to these tunes during rest-my-back-and-brain breaks. They either move me (emotionally) or make me want to move!
Join me and boogie your way to feeling good, weight loss and inner joy!
Here’s Enya enticing you to get out of your funk with “Age of Loneliness,” which you can listen to, courtesy of YouTube.
For you heartbroken or lonely single or divorced women feeling like you need a mood boost, first get inspired by the old tune, It’s Raining Men, with the Weather Girls, then Beyonce’s Single Ladies, then Rihannna’s feat (ft. Nicki Minaj)
Now, I dare you to dance non-stop to this Feel-Good Tune from Yanni, The Storm. You can buy a DC with that tune and many others here.
Now, here’s a melody to make you feel victorious, thanks to U2’s City of Blinding Lights.
Now, here are two of many, many suggestions offered by JJ Virgin in her book, Six Weeks to Sleeveless and Sexy. Check out the amazing list of JJ’s favorite Workout Music on pages 175 to 180.
Have fun boogying to Mony, Mony from Billy Idol.
And now here’s the upbeat, fun-to-dance-to Livin’ on a Prayer from Bon Jovi.
Get dozens more Feel-Good or Comfort Tunes here. They’re complete with many YouTube videos and links to even buy some of the songs.
