Are you in the mood for spring cleaning? Is your family moving to a new home? Or maybe you are about to begin your weekly chores? Whatever the case is, we believe here at Packaging Accessories that cleaning, moving, packaging, and organizing can be fun and stress-free; all it takes are the right people, materials, and mood — and what better way to uplift the mood than music?
Here are some tunes that you can listen to depending on your mood.
In the Mood to Organize Peacefully
Zen, tranquillity, and sound peace — these words can be associated with spring cleaning usually done alone. Studies show that the sound of nature greatly helps in fostering a peaceful atmosphere when cleaning or organizing.
Sounds of the rain, streams, trees rustling, and birds chirping are considered white noise, which is said to be perfect for enhancing the ability to concentrate and work fluidly.
If you need to roll up your sleeves, tie your hair, and go down to some serious packaging or cleaning, a study by Canadian researchers suggested that up-tempo music can stimulate faster, more efficient performance. Baroque music comes highly recommended.
You can also try Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra’s classic “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” If you’re feeling less serious and more on the giddy side, you can also try the “Happy Working Song” from “The Enchanted,” and have your kids enjoy cleaning with you.
Moving On Blues
Coming out of a serious heartbreak? Getting rid of past items and moving forward? Eminem’s “Cleaning Out My Closet,” Hilary Duff’s “Come Clean,” or Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” can be good songs to start your playlist.
Finish off packing your last box with Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” to lighten the mood.
Heading to a battle in your own closet? Maybe your upbeat “war” songs can begin with Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” followed by ”Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton and Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling.” You can also turn your entire routine into an exercise with these kinds of music!
