WHAT YOU'LL NEED
iPod/mp3 with at least one upbeat tune

WHAT YOU'LL DO
Hit play and attempt to boost your mood while you're listening. Be careful not to think too much about your inner state or question whether you feel happier, which messes with the process.

THE SCIENCE
A study published in The Journal of Positive Psychology showed that participants who listened to upbeat music while attempting to feel happier during regular sessions over two weeks reported better moods and higher overall happiness than those who listened to music alone. It supports the Hedonic Adaptation Prevention (HAP) model, which says consistent positive experiences and keeping a check on ‘wanting more’ can keep us in the upper half of our ‘set range’ of potential happiness.
