This week has not been the worst or the most challenging week I have ever had but it was challenging all the same.
This week has been a combination of interpersonal challenges, managing my time and workload in relation to being on holiday next week and planning for a busy month, with the addition of an irritating uncomfortable winter virus.
This resulted in me going to work every morning with a cloud of self-pity hanging over me.
To gee me up I turned to my generic fruit based music streaming service, collecting a playlist of songs that take stop me worrying about the past and future and bring me into the present. They may remind of being younger, so do fleetingly take me to the past, but more importantly they create that positive emotion.
That positive emotion intern evokes optimism and creativity setting me up for the day, helping face the challenges set and achieving the actions I had set myself.
I thought I would share some of my current positive share list with you. Each is a link to you tube for you to have listen if you wish.
Also sharing my music makes me happy and consequently improves my creativity and wellbeing.
I have shortened the playlist to 6o minutes to replicate the old mix tape style.
So please accept my gift of a virtual mix tape from me to you.
