The Wonders of Soothing Music
We live in an era of quick-fixes, where our expectations, both on professional and personal fronts, are ever-increasing. And, to live up to these expectations, we go the extra mile. And, at times, to a level of exaggeration. Results? Hypertension, high blood sugar, insomnia, depression, stress, anxiety, and many other lifestyle diseases clasp us from all sides. However, we cannot move along with so much stress, reassuring our inner selves that these are our partners in the journey to be successful. Therefore, music therapy.
Music is everywhere
The chirping of the birds, the rumbling waves of the ocean, the stridulating crickets, the roaring thunderstorms, the rustling leaves, rain pattering on the roof, and every sound, whether it’s mother natures or produced by musical instruments, that help us unwind and relax is soothing. And, it’s well-established that calming music can heal your mind, body, and soul like nothing else.
Relax, unwind, enjoy!
As music is mystically connected to our emotions, it is a time-tested and powerful tool for stress management. However, as far as the relaxing effects of music are concerned, classical music with a slower tempo works wonders. It relaxes our mind and muscles and makes us feel calm and peaceful from within.
Soothing music has many physiological benefits too. It helps in slowing down our heart and pulse rate, reducing blood pressure and sugar, and lowering the levels of Adrenaline, Cortisol, Norepinephrine, the 3-main stress hormones of the human body. And soothing music is an excellent escape from the tantrums that life throws at every walk of our lives.
