Research shows that music can affect our brain chemistry and cognitive processes. The right sounds can help us relax, pump us up, or get in the mood for, well, really anything. Similarly, the wrong sounds can cause us stress and make it more difficult to focus. Sound like any other of your senses? Just like music, cleaner air can help us feel more human; and unpleasant odors, stagnant air, and built-up contaminants can stress us out.
Cultivate a warm and welcoming environment by opting for olfactory and sonic stimulants that will induce pleasure. Start with clean air, then pump up the playlist, don a fresh outfit, cook a delicious and healthy meal at home, turn on your electric candles, and get ready to feel the love with our Valentine’s Day Spotify playlist.
