Listening to relaxing music.
A simple question for you: Have you ever wondered why people put on some slow music or sounds when they are practicing meditation or yoga. Simply because calming music initially allows our mind to calm down and initiates human relaxation responses. Music with slower tempo can create a profound connection to our emotions and energy.
Benefits ~ regular listening to comforting music can:
- Reduce our stress and anxiety levels.
- Allow our mind to slow down and think more clearly.
- Improve our brain functions and communication skills.
- Lower our heart rate and breath more slowly and mindfully.
- Be a pleasure experience and increase our emotional intelligence.
At the end of the day, our mind has been bombarded with countless thoughts, unpleasant noises, information, messages, etc. Information overload would definitely slow down our brain function. Why? When the amount of information is way greater than the capacity of our brain can handle, we gradually lose focus in making judgement. Therefore, listening to relaxing music is effective for clearing our minds from excessive thoughts and slowly optimize the quality of our sleep.
If you’re not sure what kind of music to choose from, you could start by exploring the relaxing music on the Internet or listen to the nature sounds. This is the music I’m listening right now, Relaxing Music State of Tranquility, it’s a combination of various musical instruments which I feel comfortable to listen to when drafting this post. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any favorite relaxing music, kindly share with us.
