Moving, as exciting as it can be, can be pretty difficult, as many will attest to. However, a great playlist with entertaining music will help to minimize the stress. Just imagine – on a tiring day, you are listening to your favorite playlist that’s getting you relaxed considering the amount of work you’ve done. Whether you are moving with the help of a mobile home moving company or all by yourself, music is always there to cheer you up. This article is a recommendation of tracks while moving across the country or when moving to a new state.
How Music Relaxes Your Move
Emotionally charged music can improve your mood and help you concentrate better. Faster tempos can go a long way towards making you feel more awake. A positive and optimistic attitude can be boosted by listening to upbeat music. Stress can be relieved through music by relaxing your muscles and quieting your mind in a calmer tempo. Music can also relieve brain tension and make you feel peaceful.
This area of the brain is closely linked to the limbic system for controlling feelings and emotions, and to the brain for controlling brain function, blood pressure, and heartbeat.
Stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol are released when you feel threatened. You can switch your stress response off by listening to music and you’ll recover intellectually and emotionally more quickly than you would without it.
Without further ado, let’s get into the tracks:
1. Money for Nothing (Dire Straits)
When you’re moving appliances, this is the jam to pick up the pace. However, we are fairly certain that fridges and microwaves are just as heavy as color TVs these days, so heave-ho! This song will bring a certain nostalgia into your mind.
2. We Gott’ Get Out of This Place (The Animals)
You were tired of your old place anyway, right? Do you remember that place? The one that is so dirty and the sun would never shine? This song is gonna be perfect if you’re feeling cold about your move. Just crank it up and nod along.
3. Ramble On (Led Zeppelin)
You might want to prepare yourself for the long journey ahead by listening to this classic Zeppelin song as you sip your coffee while you listen to the autumn sunrise. Then you hear thundering drums and electric guitars march into the stereo field and you can just about tell you’re going to ramble on.
4. Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run
What has to be done when you need a well-crafted epic to take you across the United States in style? I trust The Boss. Although his tour bus driver probably drives most of the time these days, Springsteen certainly knows the thrills and perils of the open road.
Other Honorable Mentions:
- Willie Nelson – On the Road Again
- Green Day – Good Riddance
- Bob Dylan – Like a Rolling Stone
- The Mowgli’s – San Francisco
- Ray Charles – Hit the Road Jack
- Supergrass – Alright
- Lady Antebellum – Goodbye Town
In addition to keeping you entertained, listening to appropriate music also reduces stress related to moving. You will calm down a lot when moving to a new home by listening to music. This way you can concentrate all your attention and energy on the things you need to get done before you move – and not on the lengthy list of things you must do.
