How’s your day IGC energizers? You got it by now, IGC is for Innergchic. If you’re here it’s obvious you know everything is about energy, which starts with the inner you! Boy am I on cloud nine with this section of my blog!!! Music!!! I call it the free therapy! But for those of us who are deeper with it, we have subscriptions like iTunes, Spotify, Rhapsody, Pandora, etc. I’ve been trying for the longest to think of something that music doesn’t flow through. We can hear a beat in the simplest thing like the wind blowing. One of my favorite movies to this day is August Rush. Everybody comes over, pizza, popcorn, snacks, and we watch it over and over like we’ve never seen it before. Yes, even the kids in my family know this movie. If you haven’t checked it out, I highly encourage you to do so! Then you can message me and let me know what’s your favorite part. I highkey hope part 2 of this movie is in the making, I mean really!
I remember growing up and staying overnight sometimes at my grandparents’ house and my grandma would listen to the radio station, back in the 90’s it was 97.5 based out of Raleigh, NC. At night, they’d play “the quiet storm” and I was intrigued that the segment of the show was called that. What’s even more interesting is all the songs they played did exactly what grandma said it’d do. You’d be out before you even knew you were sleep! In that era for us, growing up meant getting up some Saturday’s to clean the house as a family. To help us get out of our feelings my parents played a little bit of everything. I so remember Frankie Beverly and Maze, Aretha Franklin, Mother Finest, Temptations, and Bobby Womack. Sometimes it felt like we didn’t want to stop because we were caught up in the rhythm and enjoying ourselves.
Which brings me to my next thought, when’s the last time you analyzed the benefits of listening to music? Putting music on, and of course the right music helps you sleep better, reduces depression, and enhances performance. No wonder the workplace dare not to touch that policy! Imagine what would happen if they told people you couldn’t listen to music while working? I’m always hopping all over the place with my playlist since I love most genres of music! What are you guys listening to these days? Until next time, love yourself, appreciate your tribe, and try something new!
