When you’re feeling tense; when you think you’re going to scream if you see one more coronavirus warning in your news feed, start playing some music. Good music has proven that music has the power to improve your mood as well, good music can calm COVID-19 anxieties. A great tune helps soothe the anxieties and fears we’re all experiencing while the pandemic continues to isolate us from our normal stress releasers, like the gym, a night out, our family and friends.
If your isolation includes family, why not sing the alphabet song with your toddler, or introduce your teenager to some of the groovy music from when you were that age – yes you’ll see rolling eyes, but you’ll also suddenly see everyone’s mood improving. And, be open to really listen to the music everyone else enjoys; you may be surprised that they’re onto something.
Open the windows, let the spring air in, and pick sing-along tunes that make you bop and dance with your partner, your kids or even on your own to get some exercise happening. Turn it on, turn it up and experience a happy place you thought you couldn’t find.
Synchronizing with other people gives an instant connection, an extra emotional oomph. On your own? Sync up with someone on social media. Not in a boppy mood? Calmer, more mellow tunes can help you chill out or relax while working on your yoga moves.
No matter what culture you are from or what language you speak, music is understood and enjoyed by all of us. Once we’re all back to “normal” and firing on all cylinders your phones are likely to be busier than ever! Be sure to treat your callers (the lifeline for your business success) to some uplifting, energetic music when you have to put them on hold. On our website samples, you’re sure to find a piece that speaks your brand. And don’t worry about licensing…a subscription to our service has it all covered and the low cost is well worth it. Contact On-Hold Marketing to get your program in place for the burst of consumer enthusiasm on the way.
In the meantime, all of us at on-Hold Marketing wish you good health and good spirits. Start listening, start singing and you’ll discover that good music is a key to coping with stress and help calm any Covid-19 anxieties.
In the words of Tom Petty, “Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There’s not some trick involved with it. It’s pure and it’s real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things
