31 Day Self Care Challenge: Day 5

Day 5: Listen to soothing music.

Have you noticed that music can influence your mood?

Have you noticed that music as the power to set the tone of the atmosphere?


The other day, I listened to “peaceful meditation music” and it had a major influence on my mood.

The other day I listened to worship music and it had an impact on my Spirit. I felt like my cup was being filled.

Those are some examples of music’s influence on me!


According to Trimble & Hesdorffer (2017), the link between music and emotion seems to have been accepted for all time. Plato considered that music played in different modes would arouse different emotions, and as a generality most of us would agree on the emotional significance of any particular piece of music, whether it be happy or sad.

This reminds us that even the word motion is a significant part of emotion, and that in the dance we are moving – as we are moved emotionally by music (Trimble & Hesdorffer, 2017).

Interesting huh?

I want to know how music influences you!
