  • Music Therapy

    Music therapy has been found to treat mental health problems such as schizophrenia, autism and other psychiatric illnesses. They soothe the senses and help patients relax and experience peace of mind. Happy music encourages healing inside and out. Do you agree? What other natural ways can you suggest?

  • turn my playlist on every night (on lowest volume) with favorite song at top, asleep before the second song ends

    so agree music is relaxing


    • I LOVE music. I listen to music daily. It helps clear and calm my mind and just make me feel good. I love all different genres of music. It isn't an addiction: it's a passion. And you're right: music CAN help people with mental health problems.


      • To go along with the music, dancing!!! If I find myself falling into that depressive state I pay attention to what I'm listening to first. If I'm listening to sad, melancholy stuff I change it to something upbeat. My go to is Hip Hop Power Workout channel on Pandora. I turn it up and DANCE!!!!

        • Music is great, and it's also one of those therapies you can do by yourself rather than going and sitting down with a stranger which is awesome. It's amazing how you can listen to one song and your mood completely changes. Annnd it can promote basically any mood. I've got a few go-to songs when I need a cry or when I am angry, or of course when I want to cheer myself up (Michael Jackson always works for that one).


          • I meditate on meditative/contemplative/zen music. I listen to it daily.


            • I could not live without music.


              • A great post, Loric2014! This IS a positive thread. Music therapy is, obviously, very important. As you know, I love music as it calms me down and helps me deal with stress. I could not live without music. It is wonderful therapy.


                • Music is the best source for reduce stress .it can help to lifts mood,reduce,anxiety,and cure insomnia and depression.


                  • There is a lot of scientific knowledge that music affects the brain and - depending on the type of music - can release stress and anxiety. I have found this on a personal level. I use music to reduce stress and keep my mood up. I have always listened to music and always will. Many people find the same, whether they're listening to Mozart or heavy metal.


                    • Music heals the heart and the mind.


                      • You're absolutely right, HughFennell.
