I am 48 years old and a mother of two grown girls, and step mom to a special needs son. I have struggled most of my life with being a healthy weight, going from one extreme (underweight) to the other (morbidly obese).

Little mini-challenge for you: Can you name 2 songs you can listen to the next time you need to brighten your mood?

Think about the music on your playlist and pick at least 2 songs that are proven mood-brighteners for you. They can be upbeat, slow-tempo, or anything in between . . . as long as they put a smile on your face! Keep them in mind for the next time you need a quick pick-me-up. Music has a proven effect on well-being! It can lift your mood, boost energy, and stimulate positive thinking. It can even help relax you at the end of a long day or during a stressful situation. emoticon
