My son has gotten 6 molars in the past 2 weeks. Which means we have been dealing with lots of crying, whining, and poor sleeping. That, along with everything else has been enough to tip my mood from its normally pretty happy and calm state to a bit of a grumpy and anxious state. Yes, I admit I’ve been a little grumpy and stressed out. When I realize that I’m not in the best of moods I’ll pull out my phone or turn on the computer and listen to one of my ‘Top 15 Pandora Stations That Will Uplift and Calm Any Mood or Day’. Immediately after listening to any one of these stations, I start feeling much much better. There is something amazing about the power of music. It can instantly turn a drab hour into a fun filled hour in the day. It even helps cranky children enjoy life more as well :).
The best part about Pandora is that it is FREE! You just need to sign up using an email and password. I’ve been using Pandora for the last 6 years and I still love them today. If you have never used Pandora (or heard of it before) they match the artist that you pick (the station) to similar artists. You can vote and say you like or don’t like each song if you want and unlike normal radio you can skip the song if you don’t like it.
I have quite a few Pandora stations saved on my account but there are a few that I immediately click on when I need to be uplifted or calmed down.
