Career Management

If you’re like me, and a big lover of music – you’ll know that whatever situation you’re in, there’s a song that goes with it! This also applied to situations when you’re feeling demotivated – there are definitely songs you can listen to to improve you’re mood and get you up, motivated and raring to go. Research has also shown that listening to music can have a multitude of positive effects on the body including:

  • Improving sleep quality
  • Reducing stress
  • Elevating mood
  • Reducing anxiety

I’ve put together my top 10 list of motivational songs – so stick them on in the office, at home or on your commute and you’ll be feeling more motivated in no time!

1) Working 9 to 5 – Dolly Parton

This one’s self explanatory really..

2) Bills – LunchMoney Lewis

Upbeat, positive and one that will stay in you’re head for days!

3) High – Lighthouse Family

A classic!

4) Lovely day – Bill Withers

Every day is a lovely day if you listen to this song!

5) Here Comes The Sun – The Beatles

…Or anything else by The Beatles!

6) Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Diana Ross & The Supremes

One of my top motivational songs ever!

7) You Gotta be – Des’ree

Really gives off ‘feel good’ vibes.

8) Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

The title of the song says it all really… perfect motivational tune for a Monday morning!
