While I was studying for my Masters in Psychology something that I learned really resonated with me and that was music can be therapeutic and is actually proven to alleviate stress, muscle tension as well as depression. Music can even boost self-esteem, being a lover of music, I found that comforting. Struggling with postpartum depression, it can be difficult to be in good spirits all of the time. The other day, I decided to listen to songs that I haven’t listened to in quite awhile like Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, Don’t Speak by No Doubt and Ironic by Alanis Morissette. Listening to those songs brought back forgotten memories of the past and it encouraged me, eventually I found myself singing and dancing along. Before I knew it, I spent an hour listening to my favorite songs, and realized I created my own personal therapy session, with music. Afterwards, I felt so much better. No matter if you enjoy listening to Billie Holiday or System of a Down. Mental health is important. If you need therapy after hours, create your own musical therapy session. What are you waiting for, mama? Take some time out of your day and listen to your favorite tunes, and heal, even if it’s just for a little while.
