I think I am a great fan of listening to music since my childhood. Just because of its benefits in my life. It makes me feel stress free, whenever I am very much stressed. It changes my mood fully, to good one. Whenever listening to music, I feel like dancing. While listening to music, I get good ideas to develop myself. If am stuck at any point, I just listen to music and it just makes my mind fully relaxed to concentrate upon that point to come out of it. and many more. How about you? what are the benefits you think is out of listening to music?

This is a really good discussion because music is really important in everyday life because it can help change your moods,if you are sad,then music can help make you happy again,and some songs can even make you want to get up and sing and dance around the room like no one is watching,and when you are angry,some songs can help your anger flow away,and some songs can even make you sad when you listen to them even though not many people want to be sad,and I am sure that different people like different genres of music,and whenever me and my fiance leave the house to go somewhere we always have the radio on,and it is always tuned to one of our four favorite country stations,and it always makes the ride for pleasurable no matter where we are going,and if we are having a bad day,then listening to the radio always makes things feel better,especially when me and my fiance hear one of our songs on the radio,because it always makes us happy,since there are several songs that we listen to that are our songs,such as Our Song by Taylor Swift,and So Small by Carrie Underwood which is our favorite song,and it always will be,have a great day,good luck with your life,and all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

I love music also. Most often I prefer to listen to the 1960's music or country. I don't have the radio on as much when I am home as I do when in the car. It's always on in the car. Both my parents were in show business and both could really sing. Although I didn't inherit this talent, I appreciate good music as far back as the 1930's or sooner. The Big Band Era was great.

Music definitely puts you in a new mindset. Normally I'm very talkative, but when I'm getting lost in a good song, I talk less and think more. Music helps me think, and it helps me listen. It also reminds me of who I am and who I want to be.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell... I can't really explain why it helps me think, it's like, when I'm not listening to music I tend to talk more, but when I am, I tend to think more. On top of that, sometimes I find that my best work is done when I'm listening to music. I once created a piece for my drawing class while listening to Smashing Pumpkins, and I was very proud of how it turned out! So yeah, when I listen to music, something changes inside of me. That's about as deep as I think I can go. It's one of those "Knowing without knowing why" sort of things, I guess.

I also feel relaxed when I listen to music. Or when I am the office and I get frustrated at something, listening to music soothes me and calms me down. And when I am at the gym, working out, a really good workout music not only motivates me, but it pumps me up big time.

that is what is great about music. it really relieves you from stress. as for me, it relieves my stress and sometimes, when im angry, it helps me let it out when i listen to rock music.

Good reply friend. I agree to it. Music can obviously calm you down, when you are angry.

It's relaxing and sometimes can make you happy or make you think about memories that you've assoiciated with a certain song. And sometimes music can make you feel better when your having a rough time.
