From melodic tunes to heavy melodies, music is a part of everyday life. Whether it is in the elevator or in the cab, music is there. It affects us all and a can also provide us with great health benefits.
When we workout, watch television or surf the web, we always listen to music. Music is something consoling and can be so individualized. It is great because each person can like a different genre, artist or mix where each message or mood provoked by the music is almost tailored to them. We use music in many ways as well. Many times we use it in workouts to keep us pumped up. We use the quick beats and catchy tunes to get that uplift and push to make a workout pore enjoyable. We also use music when feeling stressed. Music is a great way to relax and clear your mind. All you need to do is really focus on the music, and it becomes similar to meditation. We also use music to wake us up and put us to sleep. We have our alarm set to a certain tone, radio station or playlist which dictates how we start the day. The more we like the song, the better we feel when we do wake up a slap the snooze button. When we sleep, we often sleep with soothing ocean, jungle or bird sounds or we try to fall asleep with the television on a sleep timer. The type of music we fall asleep with can determine how quickly we fall asleep and how deep we sleep.
Music is in every aspect of our lives and can be found anywhere, even out on the streets. Music is essentially noise that is put to a beat. Next time you are stressed or are feeling overwhelmed, grab your headphones or just focus on the sounds around you. You never know, you may just find your new favourite relaxation method!
