Do certain types of music make you more anxious? does certain music help you relax? im sure most people will write that quiet, calming music helps them, but not me! the heavier and louder the rock, the less stress i feel! i sing along with it in the car (or yell as the case may be, lol) and it seems to release all the pent up stress from work etc. i go to concerts and find the same stress release.. i also benefit from praise and worship music as well.
there are certain songs that remind me of a time and place- i.e my nervous breakdown when i was 15, and if a song from then comes on the radio, i have to change it straight away. i hate to be reminded of certain parts of the past. make sense?
...although listening to my dad's country and western sends me batty! and i cant do heavy metal. that makes me so tense!
just curious about what type of music, or what artist helps you unwind. dont get me wrong, i totally enjoy much more relaxed stuff as well. im just not into 'dolphin sounds and gentle breezes' type stuff which my first PDoc recommended, i could never get used to it.
