So I’m back in the UK after my first product launch event (please not my last!).
As I’m heading into work today, to a place that is certainly NOT Northern Spain, I’m mindful of this research from Spotify and Ford earlier in the week, that despite my Love of Loud, a melancholy song may actually be the best way to ease into your morning, showing us “that the morning commute is an important transitional time”.
According to Amy Belfi, a cognitive neuroscientist from New York University who is an expert on the effects of music on the brain, “What was particularly intriguing was that far from having to be ‘happy’ songs those most likely to have an uplifting effect could equally be brooding and melancholic. Of course, ‘sad’ songs can actually make us feel good about ourselves. They may remind us, for example, of difficult experiences that we have overcome and learned from.”
I’ll be posting my final posts soon, so for now I’m listening to Green Day, Wake Me Up When September Ends, and taking time to reflect…
I’ve been taking part in a really special @forduk event this week, sharing all the excitement with you on Social Media. Be Social with me using the icons below #newfiesta #FordFiesta
