Music for the soul

I love music! Well, not so much on those pop, rock or heavy metal stuffs (which I listened to during my teen years) but soothing, relaxing music. I never failed to listen to music everyday, be it instrumental, new age or classical. Music is especially good for our mind especially in times of stress or depression. I noticed sometimes when I felt stressful especially after a long day, meditating on the music helps to calm me down and refreshes me.

This is the MP3 player that I used since 2008 and my companion for two years while travelling to work. Together with a good headphone which costs me a bomb, it really gave me some great personal moments!

I didn't really have a good collection of  music CDs though I did buy a lot over the decade. Some of those I listened to includes Kitaro, Kevin Kern, Medlyn Goodall, Jia Peng Fang, Kathryn Toyama (who gave me a CD all the way from US on my last birthday) and etc. Anyway, seems like lots of music shops have closed down here in Singapore and it's getting difficult to shop for CDs and I don't like to buy online.


Anyway, one of the good things in Singapore here is they have a classical music radio channel, called Symphony 92.4 FM, which has been running for a while. You can listen online here.I usually played it while hitting the bed and set my player to sleeping mode.Try listening to soothing and relaxing music everyday and felt the difference in your daily life.

Good music is healing, refreshing, meditating and therapeutic !

  6. Oh you love Classical Music? I love classical music too! And yes, it really does calm the mind and is actually good for health!

    According to water crystal research done by Dr Masaru Emoto, classical music is good for us but heavy metal is bad for us! See the photos of effects of different type of music to water crystals HERE

  11. Bro, looks like we are the retro man,,epscially the 80s, you know i love listening to channel "V" at 7 over Astro for their "back tracks" geng lah.

    Personally, i dont really like Kitaro,, i would prefer Sadao Watanabe, even if is different genre.

    thank you for coming over to my blog,, i do come here but sometimes i find it hard to leave comments about food, and i dont really like saying something when i dont mean it bro.

    take care now and god bless
