Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog in the Netherlands and Belgium 💛

Although we like to mainly pursue an offline lifestyle with Happlify, we occasionally find something on the internet that is worth sharing. Sometimes the internet isn't such a bad place. Moreover, you often find the most wonderful things there. Take this cover of the (already) beautiful song 'Teardrop' by the Norwegian Aurora.

'Björk and Enya finally had that baby'
'It's so faithful to the original, yet still is clearly her own. This is a perfect cover.'
'I hate falling back to Earth when she stops singing...'

Those are some comments under the video and I don't really have much more to add. No idea how I ended up on this video, but it grabbed me right away. I also like to listen to Björk and Enya and I also like the original song 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack , which makes a difference. Now I just wonder why I didn't know about Aurora before. Better late than never. Because when you close your eyes and listen carefully, it's like hearing the Northern Lights sing. Listen for yourself...

Happlify your life happiness book

Music influences your mood. It causes changes in your brain where your emotions are processed. Psychological research has shown that music that touches you ensures that your two hemispheres of the brain work together just that little bit better, resulting in more empathy. The more the music touches you and gives you goosebumps, the happier you will feel. Your body then makes a lot of dopamine, the substance that gives you a happy feeling. You can read more about this and other things that increase your happiness in my happiness book Happlify your life. Now €20 with free online Reminder. Order here

Tell me, what do you think about this? Did you already know Aurora?
