‘All work and no play make Jack a dull boy’. This famous saying explains the strenuous routine of people in today’s world. Life has become a race and everybody is working hard to be on top. This is the result of a capitalist society where your social position is determined by how much effort you put into it. Therefore, our mind needs a source of relaxation to refresh the body and soul. Every person has their own way to spend leisure time. However, studies have shown that those people who frequently listen to music are able to perform better at school and workplaces.
The brain is an essential organ in the human body. Without it, a person is dead. Therefore, a person should indulge in activities which would be beneficial for their mental health. As every person is not the same; therefore, choices of music type are not similar. The elderly listen to folk or classical music and the teenagers usually hear rock or more lively music. However, the music type you listen to is not restricted by your age. A person should choose the type which they find the most appealing.
Music is not just a remedy for stress release, but it can be used as a career option. Talented artists who have unique abilities to sing, play instruments or rap, make music an integral part of their lives. They create their own songs, tunes, and lyrics. Music becomes a source of income for them and is not just restricted to a past time. The famous artists such as Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift are earning high amounts of incomes through their exclusive albums.
Peer group is a social circle which includes people of the same age, mostly teenagers. Acceptance is created through following the latest trends. Similar taste in music is also found in such groupings. Some people may use music as a medium to interact with others as it is a topic which every person has some idea about. Web forums are also common where people who pursue the same music interests, interact with each other.
During the recent years, music has gained importance to a great extent. It is a daily part of our lives and has become the attraction of every event or social gathering. DJs are gaining new platforms because of the rise in demand for creativity in music mixing. However, new forms of music are loud and obnoxious; such as metal. These may be criticized by people who prefer peaceful and tranquilizing forms of music. Music is a blessing in disguise, but it depends on how a person makes use of it.
