Tunes to Uplift

Featured Image

Music has a unique ability to almost instantly change our moods. A good song can make us feel happy, sad, in love... the list goes on. Research has even showed that melodic music can increase the release of serotonin and dopamine, two “feel good” hormones.

With this in mind, we thought it would be fun to ask our experts what feel good tunes they have on repeat right now
