Not every bad mood can be fixed, especially if it’s caused by a specific event beyond your control. However, most bad moods can at least be reduced significantly – via writing, working out, meditation, venting, or large quantities of alcohol (the last one being the most effective but least recommended).
In many cases, just getting in your car, driving out on the open road, and blasting some good music is all it takes to make you forget your crappy mood and the crappy thing or things causing it.
Truth be told, if you add music to ANY of the activities mentioned above, you’ll likely reap mood-boosting benefits and that’s because listening to tunes activates virtually every area of your brain, including memory and emotions.
