Day 97 - Music therapy

Saturday, September 22, 2018

Instead of reaching for food after a bad day, give yourself a musical escape. Immerse yourself in the sound, noticing the way it vibrates and is absorbed into your body. After five or ten minutes of music, you'll feel amazingly healed and revived.

1. Create a list of your favorite music to have readily available for times you need it.

ABBA and the music from Mama Mia
A lot of country music. My current favorites are "My Church" by Maren Morris and "It ain't my fault" by Brothers Osborne.
When I'm alone, I sing along to these songs and instantly feel better.

2. For at least ten minutes today, listen to music and focus on the beat.

During my drive to another town today, I will listen to upbeat happy music, maybe some of my favorite oldies.

3. Record how it affects your energy and your spirit.

Music always has a great effect on me. It boosts my spirits and makes me feel connected to the world.
I also love listening to quiet piano music at bedtime. It helps me shut off my "busy brain."

    Music can be a definite mood booster for me, both listening to it and belting it out at karaoke.

    Some day I am going to learn to play the piano, when I have a house big enough to hold one, and can then enjoy making music as well. It brings memories of my Grandmother's house. She played so beautifully.
