Adults think teenagers have a craze to be seen with earphones in their ear, an iPod in their hand, and their head bobbing to the music. But what they don’t know is that this is a form of therapy.
Music therapy is an interpersonal process in which a trained music therapist uses music and all its facets to help patients improve or maintain their health.
But we don’t have to go to a therapist, after all we know ourselves better than anyone.
We know which songs to listen to if we want to “lift our spirits” when we are down, to put a smile on our face when we are sad, to help us get in to a study vibe, to keep our company when we are lonely, or to even wake us up when we are feeling sleepy.
Our friend music is very unique; it has a plethora of personalities (genres) which all play their respective roles to perfection when called upon by us. An unlike any other friend, we get the same quality help, every time we press that play button.
It’s just a pity that adults seem to be oblivious to the therapeutic ways of music, as I am sure it could probably work wonders in their troubled lives!
