  1. I’ve recently been taking ten or fifteen minutes out of my hectic days to just sit and listen to a few of my favourite songs through my headphones. I’ve actually found that it’s lifted my mood and motivated me to work harder and finish any projects I’ve started! 🙂

    • Totally agree, especially with headphones cuts out all the other noise and you just get to hear your wonderful meditation calming music.

    • Music is a great healer 🙂 and babies hear everything that goes on while they are in the womb including Music and mostly their parents voices. So nice to feel the baby move in time to the music

    • Meditation sure does work wonders especially if you can do it correctly. I sometimes use guided meditation to help when I cannot get my mind to stop wondering all over the place.

  3. Music is the soundtrack to my life – I listen to it on my commute and it calms me from the stresses of the day. I also love the peacefulness of music in my yoga class. It really is very powerful for aiding meditation.

  5. I am definitely trying to have more mindful meals. I remember when a few years ago I would eat and do not even remember what or when I actually did it. Now I do my best to organise time and be present with mind and soul. I noticed that I am fuller quicker and that I actually can really taste food. Best Wishes and a Happy New Year, Iga x

    • Being mindful is very important and being aware of what you are doing is even more important especially when it comes to eating.

  6. I made a new year resolution to meditate for at least 10 minutest at least 3 times per week. This is the best resolution I’ve ever had! I’ve always suffered from anxiety and I have felt so much calmer and more gracious over the past two weeks. Not to mention, more productive too!!! I downloaded Headspace app and the guided meditations have been great for a newbie like me!

  10. Thanks for posting this article. I have tried independently to do some meditation in the past but I realised that is much better to have some guidelines from competent people. I had never thought about using music but it makes a lot of sense, as some music can be extremely relaxing. I am particularly stressed very early in the morning so I’ll try starting my day with some of the music you suggested!

    • Glad I was able to help. Perhaps having music to help you sleep would give you a good nights rest and then you would not feel so stressed in the morning.

  11. Hi Helen,

    As a trader I have incorporated meditation into my daily routine in the past in order to gain better control of my emotions, however I haven’t in a while. I spent much of my time wondering if I was doing it right, really trying to concentrate on my breathing. I feel the use of music could definitely be a way to get more out the practice.
