Do you have a mindfulness playlist?

Music’s calming effects can also help you focus and become mindful.

If you do use it for mindfulness, what are some of your favorite songs on it and why?

If you don’t, what songs would you pick to get one started?

A smartphone is an ideal way to keep a mindful music list to listen any time you need it throughout your day.

    I have hundreds! Depending on my mood I can listen to anything from 80’s classics, Motown, soul, jazz, funk, classical, gospel, Britpop and always rock…

        As you write, it is random and for today. Do you have a list with a more thoughtful approach to listening repeatedly for relaxation. Not all music is appropriate for mindfulness and motivation. What energizes you for a heartpumping workout may not be same for calming, soothing moment of reflection.

        These are the songs I revisit repeatedly when I want to relax and reflect, except perhaps replace Traktor with Alone by Heart. I also listen to Barbers Adagio for Strings, the most beautiful piece of music ever written…
