Music can uplift your mood and set the tone for your day. Join author Elaine Morales as she shares her playlist of “Feel Good Music to Lift Your Mood!“
Written by Elaine Morales
I love music so much that I even hung a disco ball in my family room.
To share this love of music, I created a play list that I give to my health coaching clients called “Songs for a Good Day.” I advise them to listen to it while driving to work, when they are not feeling that exercise mojo, or when they are in the kitchen thinking about scrapping their healthy dinner plans and ordering in pizza.
I challenge you to listen to these tunes and NOT feel like you are ready to take on the world:
“Good Feeling” — Flo Rida
That flow, that spark, that crown
You looking at the king of the jungle now
Stronger than ever can’t hold me down
Good feelin’, good feelin’
I know you got the good feelin’
Let’s get it, let’s get it
Gotta love the life that we livin’
“It’s All Good” — Will Smith
It’s all good pop the bubbly life is lovely
All sun no rain
No strain, can’t complain
I’m livin’ lovin’, lovin’ livin’
It’s all good
“Living in the Moment” — Jason Mraz
I’m living in the moment
Living my life
Easy and breezy
With peace in my mind
With peace in my heart, peace in my soul
Wherever I’m going, I’m already home
“Beauty in the World” — Macy Gray
Listen to the sound and lose it
Its sweet music and dance with me
There is beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
“Weightless” — Natasha Bedingfield
The sky is the limit
And I just wanna flow
Free as a spirit on a journey of hope
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless, I’m weightless
“It’s Good to Be Me” — Uncle Kracker
I got no worries that I’m worried about
It’s like I caught some crazy, happy disease
Damn, it feels good to be me

What have you accepted in your life that took time, physically or mentally?
It has taken me time to accept that I am a pen and paper gal. I used to think that my notebooks, calendars, to-do lists and post-its made me a technological Neanderthaless, destined to fall behind those Mac-addicted, spreadsheet-wielding, have you tried the latest app for that early adapters? My way isn’t inferior, it is just DIFFERENT. It’s how my brain works!
What do you appreciate about yourself and within your life?
Family, family, family. What matters is your people. These are the folks who have got your back, who lift you up, who offer generous, unconditional love. Without that, I would be starving.
What is one of my most rewarding achievements in life? What goals do you still have?
There are lots! The one that pops to mind first is being the first in my family to graduate from a four-year college, and Princeton no less.
My goal is to have a radical, healing impact on both my clients and our culture through my work as a holistic health and lifestyle transformation coach. We need to change the conversation in this country about health and wellness! It’s not about the fat loss!
What is your not-so-perfect way? What imperfections and quirks create your identity?
I am an excellent mom, yet I curse a lot when talking to my children.
How would you contemplate the phrase “I Love MY…?”
I LOVE my life! It is full of magic and miracles. That’s my wish for everyone.
