Recognizing, acknowledging, and experiencing your feelings is a good thing, don’t run away from them. 

“Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It’s transporting, for sure. It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening.” 

Aretha Franklin

Most of us experience feelings of happiness or feelings of sadness when we listen to music.  Either way, music helps us to amplify the feelings we are experiencing and somehow gives us comfort. Music helps us to balance our moods… it simply soothes us.

The Power of Music

Studies show that music can reduce blood pressure, anxiety, slow heart rate, and even decrease levels of cortisol.  Secondly, it can improve sleep, mental alertness, memory, higher emotional intelligence, and lower blood pressure. According to research, Classical music has calming effects which is why it is recommended to ease anxiety.  But in addition to Classical Music, Easy Listening, Country, and Pop music are also recommended to ease anxiety and nervousness

What if I am feeling blue?

There is something magical about music.  Each song can awaken a different emotion in us. The lyrics, beats, and melodies can all help us to lift our spirit. Listening to Rock music when feeling blue could help to ease your day. We have created a mixed genre playlist ‘Feeling Blue’ for you to listen to and to experience how your body feels and reacts to each song. 

Music is Beauty!

Santayana referred to beauty as the linked to pleasure, and fundamental to human purpose and experience. But it is when we experience an emotion of pleasure that beauty arises, thus when we listen to music we might see and acknowledge more beauty within us. 

I recently read an article by Readers Digest in which they describe music as the purest form of art and the most direct expression of beauty. I believe, that every woman is also an expression of beauty and just like music women enhance the life of all of those around them.
