It is also enhancing my creativity when I do my design work. Steve Brown
Everyday Happiness did not make me jump for joy but it gave me a satisfaction with what I am doing while ironing. I felt satisfied with doing the work because the music added a dimension to the ironing. Other music would be totally pulling while Everyday Happiness allowed me to feel a sense of accomplishment. Now, I always associate the music with ironing and it has become a necessary part of my routine. Phil Feldman
I never thought of myself as creative until I listen to Everyday Happiness Cynthia Reynolds
Everyday Happiness totally de-stresses me as I go from a state of feeling rushed to being completely relaxed. The wonderful thing is that it all happens quickly and naturally without the use of drugs. Stacey Moskowitz
I found the music to be very relaxing and easing the tensions of the day. James McCarthy
The best therapy I have found to relax is Mood Elevating Music. Every afternoon around four, I put it on while I rest and unwind. The soothing melodies envelop me and I am off to dreamland. It is a must in my music library. Shirley Entous
I took some time today to just stop and try to figure out why I like the music so much,considering I am not much of a music "LISTENER". The reason is because I always feel like music distracts my thinking process and clutters my mind.As a result,I never have a radio on in my home or car. "EVERYDAY HAPPINESS" is really the first type of music that I can listen to and instead of distracting me,it brings a sense of peace and calm. There is no predictable, controlling beat or rhythm that forces me to follow a pattern. I love that about the MUSIC!!! KAREN
After difficult days of hard work and stressful situations, I like to get into my comfortable environment and meditate. The relaxing effect that I get while listening to this music helps soothe my emotional responses and brings me to the calm state of mind that I seek.

After practicing yoga in quiet solitude for over 20 years, I find that Everyday Happiness makes the experience more meaningful and personal.
The mind (right brain I would say) really goes into overdrive. This music is very good fuel for the imagination.
One of the things I LOVE is that neither the lyrics nor the harmonic structure label what the song is supposed to be about or how you should feel about it…. much is open to interpretation, almost in the way a book can be more enjoyable than a movie because you are left to imagine the scene and the characters instead of being shown in an authoritative way what it is supposed to look like….this is truly freeing.
It is certainly relaxing, centering, and as you say “mood elevating" but I don’t find it’s too sedating to listen to even after a long day at work when I might be tired on the way home. For me, it strikes a good balance between being soothing and stimulating, hard to define in words and almost has to be experienced.
The first thing I noticed about the music was that I could not analyze it….neither the rhythm or the melody lasted long enough for me to learn it, to Everyday Happinessorize it. My left brain just didn’t want to work. So the drifting of thoughts begins, assorted personal thoughts start to come into focus. Unlike daydreams, however, I can’t sustain the thought because I am distracted from it by occasional snatches of a bar or two that sound familiar, either the rhythm or the melody. That familiar sound quickly ends, however, allowing the drifting to begin again.
In some ways it is like stage one sleep, in that, thoughts come and go quickly without much conscious effort, but I do believe that Everyday Happiness shuts off more cognitive function than does stage one sleep.
