Plastic surgery can be exciting, life-changing, and scary, all wrapped into one package. If you have recently decided to undergo plastic surgery, congratulations! While you are likely nervous, you have your dream body to look forward to. In the time leading up to your surgery, you will want to read up on the procedure you will be having, educate yourself on how to take care of your body before and after surgery, arrange any needed travel plans and accommodations, and lastly – pump yourself up!
One of the best ways to get excited and feel invigorated before any major life event is to create an awesome, well-balanced playlist. Music has the power to change your mood and perception during life’s many ups and downs. According to study done at the University of Nevada, faster music can make you feel more alert and concentrate better. Upbeat music can make you feel more optimistic and positive about life. A slower tempo can quiet your mind and relax your muscles, making you feel soothed while releasing the stress of the day. Music is effective for relaxation, stress management, and getting you pumped up when you need to.
