5 ways to keep positive mental health
Stress is evil!
Humans are social animals. Our aspirations to excel in society, challenges, needs and wants – everything related to material possession leads to stress.
Life without challenges is a boring game no one would want to play at the party.
And, the stress will always be the uninvited guest in your brain house.
Here are 5 ways using which you can keep positive mental health throughout the stressful day.
#1 Share music with your family
According to a study, people listening to music out loud were reported to spend three times more quality time with family members as compared to the respondents who didn’t.

#2 Share music with friends
Sharing music playlists with friends have a positive effect on your friendship.
Sharing uncommon and strange music helps to discover new genres of music. Listening to your friend’s favorite song helps you understand the kind of person he is.
Knowing this would certainly cut altercations and the stress thereby.
#3 Learn to play a musical instrument
An empty mind is the devil’s house.
Why not be productive and learn music in your spare time. Thinking about past and things that shouldn’t matter to you now may never help you have a positive mental health.
Read about benefits of learning and playing a musical instrument in one of my previous articles.
#4 Attend a musical concert with your loved one
Listening to music through earphone is different from attending a live music concert. The music experience live and in an acoustic way will surely touch your heart and help reduce stress.
Dance like nobody is watching & listen like everybody is quiet!
That’s not an authentic quote but live concerts are surely a gateway from the “emotional noise” you are forced to hear each day.
#5 Explore relaxing music
We all have different taste in music.
I like to listen to rock music. However, listening to classical music is heavenly.
The relaxing music with soothing nature is an element of music therapy.
Listening to right kind of music at right time of the day will surely help you know the purpose and relax if wandered away from your purpose.
