Music Is The Key To Love
It’s February, and we all know what that means: yes, the month of love. Valentines Day (or Single’s Awareness Day to some) is one time of the year that allows us to reflect on the people most important in our lives. However, it’s important to note that one of those people should be none other than yourself. How do you love yourself? We think that adding music to your life amplifies the positivity of your life. Take this quote, for example:
Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul. – Author Unknown
It can’t be better said than that. The unique thing about music is that it’s universal. Think about it: You can essentially name any song that you like to listen to when you’re happy, angry, sad, adventurous, etc. It’s important to emphasize how we can use music to relieve the stress in our lives and refocus on positive things. About.com illustrates this in their article Music and Stress Relief: How To Use Music In Your Daily Life. Starting right when you wake up is a perfect way to put on a good mood. Think about the rest of your day after that… When you commute, when you cook a meal, when you are about to fall asleep. However, take a look at the more challenging tasks we are faced with… Paying the bills, cleaning the house, being stuck in traffic. You can change your whole mood by playing music that you know effectively calms you down.
As we reflect on this month, lets make sure to take the time to step back and remember how to relax, how to love ourselves and others, and, most importantly, how music can help you in all these areas. What are some ways you use music in your life to become a better person?
