The idea of formally using music as a means of treating people for various conditions is relatively new. However, I think we have always known, subconsciously anyway, that music had the power to calm us and to make us feel better about ourselves and our lives.
If you have teenage kids, or if you spend time around kids in general then you know the importance of music in their lives. As we get older, many of us think we are too busy with adult issues to make time for our musical interests. This is unfortunate because the music that we are not making time for could have a major positive effect on our daily lives.
We should all make a bit of time each day to rock out to the music of our choice, whether it is classical, rock or rap. Music soothes the soul, relaxes the mind and maybe heals the body.
