Did You Know That Music Helps Us In Many Ways?
This Week's Simple Tip
I recently had the pleasure of taking care of my 7-month-old grand-daughter for a few days. It was amazing to watch how much she enjoyed music! It didn't matter if I was playing rock-and-roll, easy listening, jazz, spa or classical. She seemed to love it all (even my singing), and kept perfect rhythm with various body parts, depending on how the tempo changed:
Kicking her feet with fun to rock-and-roll
Tapping her hand and "singing" to easy listening melodies
Clicking her mouth like an instrument to jazz
Sleeping soundly soothed by spa and classical music
It got me thinking about why this was, and whether this connection with music carries with us over the years. What I found was that we first experience vibration in the womb through our mother's heartbeat and voice. No different than any other matter, the human body vibrates just as all objects do. Sound waves (like music) move through water at least 5X more efficiently than through the air. Because water in human bodies accounts for at least 50-65% of its makeup, this makes the human body at all ages a perfect receptive vessel for sound and vibration.
Because of this, it turns out there are many benefits to music that all of us can enjoy. Let's all take a break over the Thanksgiving holidays and enjoy some music and these benefits:
