asia-originalBetween school and work, college students are constantly under a cloud of stress. Doctors tell us to work out, meditate, or even take a break from our everyday lives. If you go to Texas State, then you know there is no such thing as taking a ‘break’. If you do not have time for any those extra activities, like most of us, try listening to a couple of your favorite songs for a change. Music Therapy is an evidence based therapeutic use of music to help cope with daily stress or frustration.

Music can help you handle stress by diminishing the toll that it takes on our bodies. Lowering blood pressure and reducing muscle tension are also a couple of ways it can benefit us. According to Music and Your Body, not only can music relax any tension you have, but it also can promote overall health. Music Therapy is capable of aiding patients who are diagnosed with ADD, depression, and even cancer.

I am a firm believer in Music Therapy and use it all of the time. I play my favorite songs when I’m getting dressed, showering, and even to go to bed. When I am feeling overwhelmed I like to listen to genres of music that match my mood. Songs can be a tiny admonition that you aren’t the only person dealing with that certain problem. When we realize that we aren’t the only person with that problem, we begin to feel more comfortable and then the issue becomes less important.

I hope this post encourages you all to look into Music Therapy and use it to relieve some stress in the near future. Remember that this mechanism is super easy to use due to music being portable and apart of our everyday lives. Just throw on your favorite album in the background and continue on with your day. We can say this is your first dose of music therapy; If you ever need a reminder of how fierce you are, just listen to Queen Bey ooze confidence in her song “Flawless.”
