Music: No Need to Turn to Sugar, Drugs, Booze, Etc. When Soothing, Uplifting Tunes Can Lift Your Spirits

Miss_saigon_41nxhr1fhdl__sl160_aa11As I’m sitting here faced by an almost non-stop, ferocious, crushing Lyme disease-induced headache, which makes sleep virtually impossible, I’m easily riding it through, thanks to the fabulous tunes of "Miss Saigon" to which I’m now listening.

Which leads me to ask those of you who are suffering with bad habits: Why turn to sugar, drugs, alcohol and other horrible substances or self-destructive pursuits when music can salve and soothe your soul?

Try it sometime. Turn on tunes instead of rushing to self-defeating behavior. (You know what they are for you.)

Now, I invite you to learn about the benefits of music to lift depression. Just read Tara Parker-Pope’s intriguing story, which she posted earlier this year in the Well blog of the New York Times.

I'm a former sugar-addicted journalist, who reluctantly quit sugar on doctor's orders in 1998. When all 44 of my crippling ailments vanished, I began interviewing hundreds of experts worldwide so I could give you the sour scoop about sweets. Fast forward 17 years, and I'm now author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012). The latter gives you a simple, proven plan to easily squash your sugar habit. I'm also a motivational speaker, a certified life coach, a certified health coach, frequent media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm now planning the first first Sugar World Summit and I'm finishing writing my next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™, which will help you easily escape your must-have-junk-food moments.
