I listen to my radio at work all day long (turned low). It keeps things calm. ❤️

That sounds like a great idea. With all the craziness going on soothing music truly helps the soul. After a hectic day a nice bubble bath, some smooth jazz , candle light and a nice glass of wine works also.

I have heard that also. I laugh and tell my husband if I am ever in a coma put my IPod up to my ear and just play my music. Then pray I never need it.
I was seriously sick in 2016 in the Hosp. for 2 weeks so I listened to my IPod then to help me sleep.

It is very soothing and was a life saver for me. My daughter was killed and my therapist suggest I listen to soothing quiet music to go to sleep because I was having such a hard time.
I love music anyway, but the soothing music was a better kind of music at this time.
When I was young I use to blast the music and clean my entire house on week-ends as I worked all week.
I love music. and IMO it does make for a better life.

Music makes all things better. I love smooth jazz. Anytime I'm feeling down I just tune in and let the music take me to a better place. I love the many instruments. Just so soothing. I also listen to ocean and thunderstorm sounds with soft music playing in the background. I usually play that in the evening when I go to bed. Very soothing and helps me sleep.

Absolutely.  I don't play a lick but I sing in my church choir.  I moved last year but won't change churches because of that.  I'd like to write songs but there is so much to learn.  Music is a language of love, sadness, happiness.  My favorites are Asia (RIP John Wetton), Santana, Deep Purple (RIP Jon Lord).  I still buy their new CD recordings despite format changes, social and other media changes, popular style changes.  Another fave is NY's Micheal Stanley.  Music takes me away from the everyday grey into a place where I can pretend to play drums or keyboards just for fun.  Music lets me feel joy or even cry when I hear it.
