The healing power of music

Updated: Jan 2, 2021



Using Music Therapeutically: Music can greatly affect our mood. Choose your piece of music wisely. When we feel low, it can be tempting to play music that fits with how we feel, which may make us feel worse. It can be much more helpful to choose music that is close to how we feel now, but just slightly above it, for instance a little faster or slightly more upbeat, or music that starts slow and sad, but changes and influences our mood in the same way. Music is very personal, and what works for one person may be very different from what works for another. If you’re not sure what piece of music to use, then get a few tunes together, and try them. You’ll soon know if a song or piece of music is going to do the job! Very quickly you’ll notice it starting to affect you. Watch out for song lyrics. Whilst the music does the main job of affecting our mood, the lyrics also play a part. If you’re going to practise mindful listening, then it may be best to choose music without words
