To change your life:
Start immediately, do it flamboyantly, no exceptions.
I love putting together playlists and listening to music throughout the day.
At the office, I put my headphones on when it’s time to focus, tune in and get productive. I also use them to block out distractions when I’m blogging from the coffee shop. Right now I’m wearing Skullcandy ‘s 50/50 earbuds, which are very comfortable and a nice alternative to the standard-issue Apple headphones.
In addition to mixtape and playlist posts on other blogs, I use Pandora and iTunes Genius Recommendations to discover new artists. While exploring songs for today’s post, I ended up downloading Florence + The Machine’s new album Ceremonials and Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto. Have you listened to either? I think I like F+TM’s better, but they are both pretty good.
The Autumn Playlist below is a perfect blend of mellow songs for a chilly day. I plan on listening to it while blogging, working through my emails at work, and folding laundry this weekend. All the links lead to iTunes, so head over and have a listen. I hope you enjoy!
