The sound of music can calm and relax the body
Sometimes I like to listen to music to relax and calm down the nerves of my body. I remember there being a saying about music being able to a bring calm to a savage beast. I believe this to be a very true and relevant statement. I may not be a savage beast, but there are times when I feel almost like a beast. When I am sad or depressed, listening to music has helped me take my mind off of the stress I am experiencing at the moment. Also, the music helps me to think more clearly. Thinking clearly helps me make better decisions and arrive at better solutions to problems. I like to listen to all sorts of music for relaxation. Music with harps and violins seem to help me relax the most. Also, I like the sound of water running or falling. Guitar music is relaxing and inspiring to me as well. In addition, listening to music helps me get to sleep when I am having trouble getting to sleep. Music is definitely an important tool in helping to relax and calm the body.
