    Hope you is all well & enjoying your time here at the forum.

    Here's a psych blog you may find interesting -

    I’m teaching a class right now called "The Science of Well-Being" (aka The Psychology of Happiness and Virtue). In preparation, I spent a ridiculous amount of time creating a playlist (see it on Apple Music and Spotify) of music relevant to each lecture (e.g. happiness, strengths, emotions, optimism, gratitude, forgiveness, kindness, flow, etc.). I tried to select an eclectic mix of songs and genres, so it would appeal to a wide variety of musical tastes. I even asked my two college-age kids for advice and also consulted the democratic candidates’ summer campaign playlists (which leaned not only to the left but to the positive). If anyone wants to listen or is just curious or might even use it in their own classes or practices, here it is.

    That's an interesting list not all of which I would put on such a list. But there's a couple I'll plan on giving a listen to.

    Often the quickest path from ignorance to arrogance
    Kind and Generous, by Natalie Merchant is one of my favourites, and a few others I would happily listen to as well, so I'm sure there is something here to appeal to most, given that I am rather picky as to what I will listen to. :D
