Music In My Life

Music In My Life


Music is life. Thats why our hearts have beats.



        Music helps relax for some and focus for others. Listening to music helps me relax when I am stressed. To me, music is like the master of relaxation. There are many songs that can be fast and loud. But when I am trying to relax, I like to listen to the songs that I am familiar with and can just lie down on mu bed and fall asleep to. When you are stressed, it is always smart to turn to music. You put your headphones on and you just feel lime you are in that zone, you can’t hear the loud noises around you, you just relax and sometimes if you are deep enough into the zone, you even start singing the song aloud and you don’t even realize it. It was a Monday, it was the day of my mid-year exams and I was so stressed. Luckily I had study hall right before my Social Studies exam. I thought that I was going to spend more time on write up my outline even though I had already finished it. I just wanted to work on it more. But when I got in the room, I saw all my friends listening to music and working at the same time. I knew that they were using music to help them focus. I can’t focus when I am listening to music and I realized that I didn’t need to do anymore work on the outline. So I sat down, put my headphones on and started to sit back, relax and enjoy the song. In that hour that I had to work, I used it to relax and get the stress off my back. When I started taking the exam, I felt to relaxed and ready to take the exam. I had ended up getting a pretty good grade on the exam. I am really happy that I had takin the time to relax and get the stress off my shoulders because it really had paid off. Music helped me get in the zone to feel comfortable for the exam and I felt glad that I had decided to relax and listen to music instead of study. For me, music only helps me relax, and when I am stressed again, I will turn to music to solve my problem.
