Relief Of The PressureWhen I get very angry, sad or anxious....I find that the right music can manage to calm me down and bring me back to center. I seem to suffer from a mental clog when I get affected enough by a situation. If I sit and listen to music (that is if I can find a chance to do it at the time that I am irritated)...it soothes me. I don't know if it is because I get lost in the melody. Perhaps it is the lyrics of the music. It might just be as a result of the fact that I am concentrating on what I am hearing instead of focusing on what it bothering me. Whatever the case may be....it helps me a great deal.
Lately it has been a little more challenging to release the tension...even with music. But, some of the most profound "aha" moments that I have been able to experience have been with the assistance of the right music. There are certain artists that tend to help better than others. The type of music I am listening to depends on my mood. I usually have my ipod on random but select the first couple of songs. As the music continues...it becomes a journey of sorts for me. I may end up listening to a completely different genre or mood of music by the time I am all done. More times than not...it is a great transition.
