Meditation Through Music
Clearing your mind through meditation is one of the most peaceful ways you can find to just relieve all the tension you have in your body. Once your mind and body are relaxed you can start to just enjoy some time to yourself. I know that many of us listen to the radio at some point in the day. You may enjoy music ranging from country, to easy listening, disco, soft rock, pop, rap, R&B, or even blue grass.
Whatever kind of music you enjoy, you can find this as a very relaxing way of meditation. For a lot of you that are in good physical shape and like to exercise in a gym at home or even by jogging you may like to be able to free your mind of a lot of things that have bothered you through the day. If you are out and about doing your exercises, take a device with you and just put it on a playlist that you really like and let the music just relax all of your tension.
If you are at home exercising, or even cooking, or cleaning, if you have a CD player, get one of your favorite Cd's and play it (or let’s be real, just ask Alexa or Google) while you are doing the things you need to do. You can also just create a playlist of your favorite music for your meditation. One of the things I find relaxing is listening to music while I am working on the computer.
You can use sites like Apple Music or Spotify to download your all-time favorite songs. I enjoy playing my music every day when I am on the computer. I just quietly sing along to my favorite music relax and just meditate about my day. I actually use my keyboard a lot and have to do a lot of typing about different subjects. I have found that if I am not completely relaxed and my mind clear, I will make many more mistakes in my work which I can't afford to do.
I know I need to be completely relaxed, so I pull up my music player and play my favorite songs that will help me to use mediation to get my work done. After having a busy long hard day and I know I still have to drive home and start my routine of cooking, helping kids with homework, giving the kids a bath and getting them off to bed. I love listening to my favorite songs anytime I drive home, or go somewhere in my car.
As soon as I get in my car and I think about all the things I will have to do, I put on the radio to clear my mind and relax and meditate. After I get all my work done at home, I put the kids to bed and the house is very quiet, I will draw myself a hot bubble bath and listen to my music and just clear my mind and gather my thoughts so I then can start the next day with a clear mind.
So, whether you enjoy meditating by exercising, shopping, or listening to your favorite music, you will find once you have released all of your tension, you can then start to feel good about yourself and when you feel good about yourself you can then feel good about your life.
Until Next Time!
