I have chosen to do a single-subject research design focusing on the ABA intervention model. For this study, I have decided to study my attitude based on music lead meditation to improve a negative mood. I have noticed that through this pandemic, my attitude and personal disposition have become negative through isolation. I believe that music lead meditation can improve my mood at the start of my day. I thrive on being a positive person and believe that music-led meditation for thirty minutes a day can improve my attitude and daily disposition. I start my day by recording my attitude or daily disposition on a scale from one to ten. Ten is the highest and one being the lowest. I have started this study on February 7th and recorded the baseline mood assessment for three weeks. I had noticed my attitude would fluctuate from a range of nine to six consecutively through these weeks. Starting on February 21st, I added the intervention of music-led meditation at the beginning of my day after I had taken and recorded my initial ranking. I have noticed there was a significant increase in my mood after the meditation. I have a study ranking of a seven to ten since the intervention has started. I am continuing to record my attitude with the added intervention for another week for four solid weeks with the intervention in place. Then I will remove the intervention to see if it has any lasting effects and recording the scores on a scale of one to ten for a period of two to three weeks.
