Who else travels to another realm when they have their ear phones plugged, playing their favourite songs? Check out five ways music can help you below:
1 Morning Inspiration
When you start the day filled with gratitude and inner peace, the rest of your day unfolds in a more harmonious way. Listening to relaxation music in the morning can help put you in a peaceful mood that will stay with you throughout the day. #WhoCanRelate?
2 Reading and Studying
Listeners have shared with us how much they enjoy listening to meditation or nature music while they read. We’ve heard from students that relaxing music makes their hours of study more productive. We personally enjoy listening to music for reading and studying while we read, so this came as no surprise to us!
3 Reducing Stress
Listening to soothing music that relaxes your body and elevates your mind can significantly reduce how much stress you feel. Relaxation music helps you connect to your inner peace. When you quiet your thoughts and feel your source of peace within, it’s like having a stress-proof field around you. Reducing stress not only makes you feel much better, it can also bring improved health.
4 Soothing Babies and Young Children
Relaxation music can be a big help for parents at naptimes and in the evenings before bed, with its soothing effect on infants and children. If your child is cranky, just play something soothing like Frank Ocean’s Nike.
5 Better Concentration at Work
If you visit Accelerate office, you will notice virtually everyone has their headphones on (when the office is not in a crazy production mode). Have you ever noticed how much more you can get done when you are less tense and more relaxed? Listening to meditation music makes it easier to focus your mind while working. It helps you accomplish more.
