Does your daily life feel stressed and hectic? Like you barely have time anymore to lie down on the couch, put your feet up in the air and just chill? Not even a spare hour in your busy day to listen to the latest album by your favorite artist?
Well, I have good news. You can easily add your favorite music into your daily routine without adding any extra hours you don't have. Not only will you be constantly updated on the latest tunes, but also make your everyday mundane activities more interesting.
Here are 10 daily activities that are ten times better with music.
Putting one foot in front of the other for a considerable distance can get exhausting. That's why it's the best time to plug in your (non-designer) earphones and have a party in your head.
Now you can strut around campus or the neighborhood feeling like a boss or Kenya’s next top model. Yeah, you know that feeling.
We all know the bathroom is the best place to practice your killer vocals. Or release a mixtape with the help of Omarion.
Even Becky G said it: dancing in the mirror, singing in the shower.
The most basic activity of our lives that keeps us alive doesn't have to be boring. You can turn your sitting room into a upscale restaurant every single time with French cafe music.
Feeling fancy yet?
Argh. Worst adult punishment, amiright? Music to the rescue once again.
As you listen to your favorite Kenyan radio show or discover #NuNairobi tunes on Soundcloud, washing those pesky dishes becomes a breeze. Or slightly less annoying.
Need the motivation to read that novel you can't seem to finish? Or a bulky course textbook that is part of a class assignment? It's time to play that smooth jazz.
Now you have to write that long assignment or term paper. Another argh.
Believe it or not, classical music is both relaxing and non-distracting. Those instrumentals know how to bring up the right words to your mind and paper.
We all know that awkward silence that fills the air in a car when no one is talking. That's why vehicles are fitted with radio systems, especially handy during traffic jams and road trips. (Ebu pass that aux cord).
You can save that addictive novel for when you're in a jav - that's if you're immune to car sickness.
Chilling with your S/O
*insert Khaled's voice * Another one!
Whatever you two (or three) are up to tonight, you need that chill ambient music playing in the background. It sets the intimate mood just right.
Chilling with your friends
Nope, you're not forever alone.
This is the perfect time to show off to your friends that new hot Kenyan track you heard on YouTube. They'll be sure to return the favor and get you updated too.
Now we can't forget about this important college activity. Not saying that you turn up every day (even if you do).
Everybody knows the rule: no music, no party. It doesn't matter whether it's dancehall, hip hop, trap or EDM.
So turn up the music, let's turn it up louder!
Now you have no reason to say you don't have time to listen to good music. Whenever you're feeling bored or stressed, simply plug in those earphones and get into your happy zone, as you do your normal boring activities.
Just don't forget to say hi to that friendly face on the street. Or in your house.
