Music boosts wellbeing, and together, music and wellbeing empower. With music, we can change our mood, for the brain responds to sounds and rhythms. Need to destress and reduce anxiety? Listen to soothing, calming music. Looking for a way to lift a low mood? Peppy, inspirational music can do that. Need energy? You guessed it. Music invigorates. Listening to music enhances our wellbeing. Playing music yourself empowers you to take charge of your wellbeing. You become the conductor of the most complex symphony in the world: your brain.
Music gives us the power to express ourselves in a unique way even though our ancestry DNA certificates confirm that we’re not descendants of Beethoven. In fact, even with no music training to date, we can begin to play, and we communicate directly with our brain in a way that is beyond what words do.
Music is Wellbeing
Creating music of any kind can be better than words, actually. Words are thoughts, and thoughts are often colored by anxiety, stress, depression, and many other things that disrupt wellbeing.
Maybe it’s the letter “M,” in English, anyway. “M” is music and “M” is mindfulness. Both empower us and clear the way for us to create a quality life. Both communicate with out words. Music does so as you play notes and rhythms, and mindfulness does so through sensory input. Either way, you replace thoughts and negative emotions with a powerful experience that inspires action. In this way, you create wellbeing, which begins with an upside-down “M.”
Create Your Own Music and Wellbeing
When you create your own music and play an instrument–even when you’re new to the experience–you boost your self-confidence when contributes to an authentic experience of wellbeing that you build from within.
