Whether we know it or not, sounds have a major effect on us. They affect our bodies, our moods, our energy, and well being more than we realize.
Consider the following examples:
- In stressful situations, we like to listen to classical or meditative music in order to become calm and relax.
- We choose exciting music for the purpose of partying and celebrating.
- Aggressive music can be used to generate excitement.
- In a film or TV show, sounds and rhythms can create different moods instantly for the viewer including love, passion, grief, or fear.
The knowledge of the power of sounds allows us to use it to maintain our own wellbeing.
