The Congregational Church of Salisbury, UCC will present its monthly Mid-day Music
and Meditation on Friday, February 3 from 12:00 to 12:30 pm at 30 Main Street, Salisbury.
“Music has many wonderful benefits for stress management and overall health. It can help you calm your physiology without making a conscious effort, and that can alleviate stress from your mind. Music can also lift your mood, slow your breathing, and create other stress-inducing changes.
Meditation is also one of the most popular stress management strategies for good reason—it brings short-term benefits like a calm mind and body, and it can build resilience toward stress over time. Combining music with meditation can deepen the positive effects of both, and bring you greater stress relief.
As an added bonus, for many people who are beginners to meditation, or who are perfectionists, music meditation can feel simpler and more instantly relaxing than other forms of practice. It’s a stress relief technique anyone can use. With regular practice, this meditation can help you to better manage whatever stress comes.” From https://www.verywellmind.com/how-to-practice-music-meditation-3144791
