  1. I started Tai chi classes again. My instructor in the special classes has had Parkinson's for over 20 years! She has to be over 70 years old.
  2. A music service – Spotify I struggle daily with apathy, anxiety, mood swings, lack of motivation or initiative, as well as a general flatness to the present moment, compounded by chronic lack of sleep, dystonia, etc Although MM helps to change my mood and thought processes, music is one of the few things to move me and get the dopamine flowing. And of course both music and MM enhances music pleasure and appreciation, as well as releasing more dopamine. I’ve always loved music and it’s been important to me, but even more so now. So in the last 4 months or so I’ve made an effort to upgrade my listening experience and been lucky to find some excellent products that I highly recommend: Last month I received a trial invite from Spotify, recently launched in Canada. I was using GrooveShark for music but after checking out Spotify I decided to subscribe to it for Premium at $10 a month. This is the only service I pay for (aside from cell phone) but it’s well worth it. Music is high quality (320 kps), artists are paid, over 20 millions songs from main labels. I like a variety of music and although I listen to my favourites often, I like listening to new stuff but can’t be bothered to waste time looking. Spotify music is curated and you have a variety of ways to access music - pre-made lists, created lists, radio “stations” built around your artist of choice, access to other people’s lists, by genre, etc. This service allows me to listen to music throughout the day, quality stuff, without the effort! There is also mood and category lists specific to motivational, relaxing, etc. And no commercials! For $10 a month this is a great deal for me...
