Spoonie Tunes - A Boost of Energy

"Music listening is one of the most enigmatic of human behaviors." So very true. It's incredible how much it can alter your entire mood. To read more about the actual science behind that statement, read this article from NCBI.

This list is the first in a series of "mood music playlists" I want to share. Some of these songs may seem cheesy but cheesy is good when it comes to mood lifting and boosting energy, I think. I listen to these songs sometimes when I am trying to cook or clean or get out of a "funk".

1. Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield
2. Roar - Katy Perry
3. Brave - Sara Bareilles
4. Fight Song - Rachel Platten
5. Survivor - Destiny's Child
6. Behind the Music - Cher Lloyd
7. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk
8. Soak Up The Sun - Sheryl Crow
9. Walking on Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves

I've also made a Christian playlist of songs that give me energy as well as a "spiritual boost", all upbeat and energetic songs.

1. Overcomer - Mandisa
2. Gold - Britt Nicole
3. It's a Beautiful Day - Jamie Grace
4. Hello My Name Is - Matthew West
5. Free to be Me - Francesca Battistelli
6. Alive - Hillsong Young & Free

I'll have other playlists that are public coming up on my youtube so be sure to subscribe and watch for more Spoonie Tune playlists!

A Spoonful of My Life 3/23/2017

Every time I've sat down to write a post in the last month I've stared at the screen and drawn a complete blank. Oh, I have plenty of things in my handy dandy little planner but none of those seemed right to work on at the time. I intended to not make this blog a job or a chore so that I was only sharing authentically so I decided each time that I would just not try to throw something out there that was forced or not really what I wanted to share at the time.

In the last month I have determined that I may be more well-suited for customer service on a sales side or de-escalation side than I am for technical support and that I also may not be able to do a straight 8-9 hours at a desk at a time right now. Therefore, I am not working at this time. I do have a new job lined up that I will be starting in just over 6 weeks that is more on the sales support side and a more flexible schedule.

So what in the world have I been doing with my time, you may wonder. I'm not working, blogging or incredibly active on all the social media platforms, so what have I spent my time doing? Self-care. Resting. Netflix binge-watching, reading, sleeping, stretching, trying to get into a modified exercise routine again and best of all... spending time with my daughter. 

I think I have some pretty good posts on the way soon as a result of my little vacay but if they don't get out in the next few days, no sweat. You'll see me sharing them as they come out. ;)
