9 Songs That Will Change Your Mood for the Better

Feeling stressed, anxious, or downright sad? Maybe you haven’t been spending enough time with your headphones on. Did you know that music has been proven to enhance your mood? Researchers at Penn State University conducted a study that showed students who listened to music felt “more joyful, optimistic, friendly, calm and relaxed.”

In a separate study from the University of Missouri, music was proven to have an enormous effect on mood advancement, and “with a better sense of happiness, studies show that people experience improved health, greater relationship satisfaction, enhanced behavior—even higher income.”

We invite you to put this research to the test by listening to these songs by The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. You’ll be happy you did :-)
