As we are all well aware, music is an effective and popular coping mechanism amongst every generation. From pop culture to entertainment, to TV, to real life, we all have seen and felt the effects of how powerful music can be. Music quite literally saves lives. The amazing part of music is that no two people will take in, apply, and comprehend music in the same way. We take an artist's thoughts and feelings and apply them to our own life experiences. However, did you know there is a science to the benefits of music?
Enough with the science and deep dive into what music does for us. We all can agree that we have a song or two (or three) that create very specific reactions - but how is it used in therapy? How can it be applied more effectively to our health?
We recommend analyzing your favorite songs and music to better understand yourself, and your needs as a human. We can use this to help interpret and empower in the therapy process. If you'd like help better understanding yourself and how to cope, or if this all resonates with you - feel free to reach out to a therapist at Orlando Thrive Therapy today. Don't just survive when you can thrive.
