Holiday Soundtracks

Music plays a big part in time away. You might wake up late morning to the radio and fall asleep mid-afternoon to the sea.
If you’ve got an ear for music, it might even inspire a song.

1. Write what you hear. When we relax, we tune into nature’s jukebox. It’s full of music. Waves and wind and rain and birds all tap out a rhythm. Get on their frequency. Take some notes.

2. Hum it out loud. These random sounds sound good together. A melody. They repeat and overlap. The lyrics can come from anywhere. Dedicate it to someone. Make their day.

3. Compile your own holiday soundtrack. Sling this shiny new tune into your most played playlist. Find the perfect listening spot and switch off. By track two, you’ll be whistling.
