Magic of Music...
In a fast paced age where stress and depression are widespread, the toll of stress on physical and mental health can be extremely high.
Stress can cause headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, eating disorder, allergies, insomnia, backaches, frequent cold and fatigue to diseases such as hypertension, asthma, diabetes, heart ailments and even cancer.In fact, Sanjay Chugh, a leading Indian psychologist, says that 70 per cent to 90 per cent of adults visit primary care physicians for stress-related problems. Scary enough. But where do we err?
But stress can be controlled and there are many ways to do it.
Among them one is:
The sound of music, when coordinates well with one's inner vibration, untangles the knotted and stressed out nerves, soothes the mind-body, and promotes well-being in human as well as other species. Music can be a source of emotional enjoyment, whether one performs or just experiences it as a passive listener.
In human body, the music appreciation center is located in the right hemisphere of the brain. By listening to music one 'switches-over' from the left hemisphere (dominant for binary activities) to the creative right hemisphere. It helps stimulate one's thinking pattern. Music has tremendous relaxation effect on our mind as well as our body. Surveys on the effect of music therapy reveal that favorable musical vibrations can promote a positive thought process in an individual.
Modern therapeutic science says that music has a massaging effect on our brain. Perhaps, that is the primary reason for widespread usage of music as an anti-anxiety and antidepressant therapy and the handiest tool for relaxation.
