Fight Stress With Pure Tranquility

Happy New Year is underway and who isn’t looking forward to spring?

Towards the end of 2016 I was in a pickle.  Things around here were in a mess for us to say the least.  Maybe life doesn’t affect some people but if you are like me life sometimes gets you down for several reasons and most are out of our control.  I know I am not alone in thinking the worst sometimes based on TV commercials where an actor tries to get you to ask your doctor for the drug they are selling.  Tip – Mute drug ads.

The mess was not bad enough for me to call a doctor and ask for any drug.  I’m sure without going into details about my life you can come up with enough to write articles on here better than me.

After a night on the town or long week at work you may not be ready to bust a move but you are ready to de-stress a bit aren’t you?  When I was a teenager many decades ago I could get rid of my stress with my electric guitar and take out the garbage that was eating away at me.  Now even today I’m not much on Bach, Beethoven and Brahms known as the three Bs of stress busting.  I can listen to a little of it but good old 50’s and 60’s tunes works better for me.  The composers of a long ago age are reaching out and putting an end to stress in people they’ve never met.  I almost heard Rod Serling speaking from the twilight zone for a second.

The old TV shows are the best but all that aside – Bach, Beethoven and Brahms were composers of classical music. Classical music appeals to some of your senses.  It produces calming tones from instruments like violins, pianos, guitars and flutes. Continue reading
