A recent study by Frontiers in Human Neuroscience used brain imaging to better understand the effects of music on emotions. It comes as little surprise to music lovers who use the medium to cope with day-to-day stressors or depression that sad music has a negative impact on your overall mental health. Even the up-tempo pop music that you turn to during a breakup (hello, Taylor Swift) can negatively affect you due to its lyrical content.

Sad music or music with downer lyrics tends to fuel constant “rumination”, where you turn the same negative thoughts over and over in your head. In fact, listening repeatedly to the same style of music can have long-lasting effects on the brain, so consider that before you reach for an aggressive metal song, a misogynistic hip-hop track, or a maudlin blues tune.

In order to combat the negativity and put a spring in your step today, Savoir Flair has compiled a list of feel-good tracks that send positive messages of confidence, love, and joy straight into your brain. Improve your mood instantly by spending an afternoon with our playlist, specially curated by our own in-house DJ and available for free download.
