Over the last couple of weeks I have been listening to a lot of ambient music while doing my chores, reading blogs, cooking meals and on my walks. I have always known that music is an effective relaxation and stress management tool and have found that listening to music, these last couple of days in particular, has really helped me calm down and de-stress. So for this week's Tuesday Tune I am posting one of the songs that I have listened to MANY times this week. This music has really helped me relax and release some of the tension that I have been carrying over the last couple of very stressful weeks.
Music can affect the body in many health-promoting ways, which is the basis for a growing field known as music therapy. However, you can use music in your daily life and achieve many stress relief benefits on your own. One of the great benefits of music as a stress reliever is that it can be used while you conduct your regular activities so that it really doesn’t take time away from your busy schedule. Music provides a wonderful backdrop for your life so that you can find increased enjoyment from what you’re doing and also reduce stress from your day. Source
I hope you might be able to find some time just for you so that you can chill out, relax and unwind to this peaceful music from Café Del Mar called Lux (Northern Lights)
No matter how much pressure you feel, if you could find ways to relax for at least five minutes every hour, you’d be more productive. Dr. Joyce Brothers
