An Interesting Way To Organize Playlists That You’ve Never Imagined

An Interesting Way To Organize Playlists That You’ve Never Imagined

Playlists can be a playful way to connect different genres of music together. A great playlist can help explain a certain cycle of life or a specific mood. Thus, organizing a playlist around a specific mood is a healthy and charming way to sit back and let the music take you away.

Usually, playlists are arranged in line with moods and feature descriptive sounds; common playlists include: sad music, soft hangover artists, discover new music weekly, chill, country and workout music. These playlists are organized neatly and have been that way for awhile, but what if I told you there was a new way to organize playlists that is inventive, fun and associated with different drinks?

    It works like this: drinks are associated with different moods, so conveying their moods through music helps kill two birds with one stone. This way of organizing playlists helps the mind easily dissect what exactly it wants to hear by what determining what you want to be drinking. It’s a cute way to let your brain fire neurons and then be entertained by the choice of music coming through your ears.

    The best part is drinks can convey different moods for different people and the playlists will not be the same. For example, a playlist entitled ‘Red Wine’ will probably be a nice relaxing playlist to associate with time spent before bed time, or it can be utilized as chilled out music to have in the background when your girlfriend or boyfriend is over and you’re chatting about life.

    A playlist entitled “Energy Drink” will be the songs that you use to pump yourself up, maybe even to replace the old “Workout” playlist. When you organize your playlists correctly, everything will start sounding better and will make your mood more relaxed.

    For me, I would have a playlist entitled “Chocolate Milk” that would be used to comfort me in dark times. I use Nesquik chocolate powder and mix it with milk as my own sort of remedy to calm my nerves during troubling times, especially if I cannot sleep, have a sleep paralysis episode, or right before work/after bed. In many situations, this playlist would work as the comforting songs that make me feel OK with life, whether it be that Sheryl Crow song or that Henrietta song, they all work together, In short, the playlist would be a great thing to utilize — preferably on shuffle — to just let music captivate me the way music is meant to do.

    “Scotch” would be a playlist of heavier songs that give me a good mind buzz and makes my hair stand on edge listening to them, almost correlating with how it tastes to have scotch sliding down my throat and taking over my blood. Here, I would utilize more of my hardcore bands, such as Every Time I Die, Cancer Bats and Grizzly Knows No Remorse.

    It continues on and on, but this idea for playlists really lets your mind playfully associate moods with drinks and songs with your mental state. Your mental state will playfully choose what to listen to, so try it out for yourself and organize a few playlists. See what music start doing for you.

    11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

    11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

    Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

    Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

    1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

    Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

    2. Stress Relief

    Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

    3. Improved Sleep

    Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

    4. Appetite Control

    Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

    5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

    When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

    6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

    Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

    7. Mosquito Repellant

    Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

    8. Pain Relief

    While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

    9. The New Anti-Viral

    Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

    10. Improved Cognitive Function

    Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

    11. Money Saving

    With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time.
