Some studies reveal that not only are humans hardwired for music, but they also conclude that no other stimulus positively activates so many regions of the human brain from the amygdala to the hippocampus with unique powers to boost mood and memory.
We know of a novelist in our circle who used certain methodologies to go inside of her subconscious to retrieve information and remember incidents from her teen years, well over 30 years ago.
Part of the memory retrieval techniques that she used was to listen to music from the time period of her youth. It was amazing what she remembered.
It is used by listeners for yoga, massage, meditation, reading as a method of stress management to bring about a state of ecstasy rather than trance, or to create a peaceful atmosphere in their home or other environments, and is associated with environmentalism and New Age spirituality.
Many in our circle have tried it and it certainly works for us.
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”…Billy Joel
New-age music includes both acoustic forms, featuring instruments such as flutes, piano, acoustic guitar and a wide variety of non-Western acoustic instruments, and electronic forms, frequently relying on sustained synth pads or long sequencer-based runs.
Vocal arrangements were initially rare in the genre, but as it has evolved vocals have become more common, especially those featuring Native American-, Sanskrit-, or Tibetan-influenced chants, or lyrics based on mythology such as Celtic legends.
New-age music is defined more by the use and effect or feeling it produces rather than the instruments and genre used in its creation.
For many adults, the effects of the pandemic have been challenging.
For teenagers it has been devastating.
As reported as wpxi.com, “A new national poll shows as many as 46% of parents reported their teenagers faced new or worsening mental health conditions since the coronavirus pandemic began last year. And for girls, it appears to be significantly worse. One in 3 parents of teen girls admitted higher levels of anxiety in their children, compared to only 1 in 5 parents of teen boys.”
The United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) adds, “Children and teens react, in part, on what they see from the adults around them. When parents and caregivers deal with the COVID-19 calmly and confidently, they can provide the best support for their children. Parents can be more reassuring to others around them, especially children, if they are better prepared.”
Wellness music should be on the menu as well.
It is great to know that parents have a friend who can help.
