” Music is like a drug to our ears.”

In this lockdown period closing in between these walls gave all of us a lot of stress. No meetups with relatives friends for about six months are very difficult to spend. Music is the only tool used by everyone nowadays when they feel alone or when they want to cope with stress.

So what are you waiting for? Turn up the music and turn out the drama!!!!!!!!!!!

The beautiful thing is that music can be a time machine; just one song, the lyrics, the tone can take you back to the most adorable moment you want to go. Yes, this is the secret behind the pleasure. When listening to a song, sometimes it touches up deeply, and we start our imaginations. That imaginations take us to a world where we want to go, which is a stress reliever for our minds. 100 and 1000 things suddenly vanished, and there is a big smile on our face again.

But still, a secret is there which I will relieve later. Now comes the point of what type of music helps us to remove stress from our life. Yes, it is temporary, but music gives pleasure and comfort.

Different music for different mood:

  • Sometimes, when we are fed up with everything and found no path to go ahead or how to trust in this world, most people prefer to listen to qwali’s or patriotic songs, motivational songs. They get goosebumps and again start their work with high energy.
  • When anyone is sad, they love to listen to sad music.
  • At dance parties or weddings, we love to listen to the rocking songs to dance on and enjoy the full.
  • In meditation, some of us love to listen to the soft and soothing songs. I Believe that sometimes sad songs can also make us happy.

So, in brief, we all prefer to listen to different musical textures for other mood swings. One can also say that mostly the song we want to hear depends on our mood. Happy mood loves to listen to rocking and cheerful music; we love to listen to motivational songs and all that stuff in a demotivation environment.

So, basically what we conclude is that the choice of our music mainly depends on our mood.
