We all have our favorite feel-good songs. And like athletes warming up for a big game, we know that the right song can prime us for a better performance. But what if we told you that the way you listen to those go-to jams can make a difference as well?

So the next time you’re getting sweaty palms over that big presentation or interview, why don’t you cue up your favorite song and boost the bass.
Let us know if it works!
