Today is August 12th, and on this day in 1877 Thomas Edison completed his first model of the phonograph. The way we listen to music has changed a lot since then, and it can be a powerful tool in helping you to reduce stress. Very well Mind suggests these ways music can help:

Listen to music…

-during your morning work-commute to relieve driving tension,

-while doing chores to keep your mind from getting frustrated and reduce monotony,

-while writing bills to reduce feeling financial stress,

-and before bed to help quiet and relax your mind to help you drift off to sleep.

Here are some playlists our staff love to help you get started!:
