Music to your ears

Listening to music can be soothing and have a calming effect on our bodies. Sometimes life is so fast-paced that listening to music doesn’t always sound appealing. Try incorporating music into your everyday routine. Listen to music as you’re driving, cleaning the house, walking, or getting ready for your day. The music you choose can be anything your mood allows. Musical preference can vary from person to person. Even if you have never listened to classical music, it might be worth trying. Classical music can have a very calming effect to your stressful day and can even seem to play along with life around you. Turn it on. Take it with you. Sing along.

• White noise music and sounds can help you sleep better at night
• Listening to slow, quiet music can help slow your heart rate and pulse decreasing the level of stress hormones. Such music is sometimes found in yoga or mediation classes
