Stress and health

Do you have a stressful life? Stress is not good for health but sometimes we cannot really control some situations in our lives that give us stress. But what would be the best way to relieve stress? There are many ways to relieve stress and knowing what’s best differs according to a person’s preference. Some go to the spa or to the mall and have a shopping spree. Some simply stay at home just like me, and what I do to control stress is to just laugh it out and listen to nice music.

Music has the power to reduce stress, listening to or playing music is a good stress reliever because it provides a mental distraction, reduces muscle tension and decreases stress hormones. So I always listen to instrumental music every time I need to relax my mind and body. But there’s one thing I’d like to do aside from listening, that is to play musical instrument as well. I’m eyeing to buy yamaha p95 at guitar center someday. It’s a digital piano by the way. I like the sound of piano, its music sets my mood thus reducing my stress.
