I recently re-subscribed to a music service and added it to my Google Home and Alexa accounts and its made a significant difference. After a six month hiatus on using the service, it was clear that having access to music is a wonderful thing and does have an impact on mood and happiness.
There are a few things that are superfluous and examples of rampant consumerism. It’s nice when it’s possible to feel the impact of a service and how it can potentially make life better, even if it’s something that’s definitely not a necessity.
As Anthony Hopkins likes to say… hello, old friend.
