musicThis week, find a piece of music or a song that uplifts your soul. Take five minutes when you feel relaxed and find a comfortable place to listen to it; it could be out in nature or in the comfort of your own home. Wherever it is, make sure not to be disturbed while you listen. Close your eyes and simply listen. Focus on your body and how the music affects as you let your muscles relax. Allow yourself to form a subconscious association with this piece of music. Let it enrapture your soul and lift your heart.

Keep your chosen piece of music or song on a playlist that you can use when you need it most. If you feel yourself getting overwhelmed, stressed or tired put on the piece of music and allow it to transport you back to that place of bliss.

It is important to nurture and care for your mental and emotional health. Just as your physical body needs exercise to be healthy, so does your mental health – music can help provide this.
