Music in our lives
Listening to music makes us feel good. This is because the ‘feel-good’ chemical ‘dopamine’ is released in our brain when we listen to music, and this is proven by brain images. Dopamine helps calm our nerves, brings down stress and pumps up our energy level.
Music has its magic even on pre-mature babies. When they are exposed to music for half an hour every day for six months, they grow more rapidly than preemies that are not thus exposed. And here is one for children: it is claimed that children who regularly listen to music develop better spatial and verbal skills. So, some of you mums reading this may like to find out first hand…
Music also unites people as we can see when the national anthem or one’s school/college song is played and we immediately join in and feel one with the group present. When popular numbers are played, more couples are seen on the dance floor for similar reason. Music can also help us sleep better. From antiquity mothers have sung lullabies to their babies. Regrettably today we do not sing in our everyday life but play some soothing music before bedtime and you and the baby will sleep soundly.
So, what is the best music? Well whatever YOU enjoy is best for you, and this choice will also change over different periods of our life and with our mood. Well then what is best mode to listen? There again, today the choice is wide: choose the mode that is most accessible and convenient for you.
Whatever you do, do listen to music because as Berthold Auerbach says, “Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
OUR FAITHSudreh and Kusti – What Do They Symbolise
It is tied at the waist which is the middle of our body, to suggest that we follow the middle path in life and avoid extremes.
There was a group of women gathered at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands. The women were asked, 'How many of you love your husbands?' All the women raised their hands.
Then they were asked, 'When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?' Some women answered today, some yesterday, some didn't remember…
The women were then told to take their cell phones and send the following text to their respective husband: I love you, sweetheart. Then the women were told to exchange phones and read the responding text messages.
Here are some of the replies:
1. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick?
2. What now? Did you crash the car again?
3. I don't understand what you mean?
4. What did you do now? I won't forgive you this time!!!
6. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?
7. Am I dreaming? ???????
8. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, you will die today...!!!
9. I asked you not to drink anymore!!
and the best one
10. Who is this?
