Good morning KMS! It’s time for Mindful Monday. Here’s a Mindfulness tip to start your week. Did you know music can help you be mindful? If you have racing thoughts or need to stop overthinking, put on some songs that you love and listen; really listen, to the music, with your eyes closed (unless you’re walking of course as you don’t want to walk with your eyes closed). Calming music can have a direct effect on the part of the nervous system in charge of things you don’t have to think about like breathing, heart rate, and digestion. This may be why music is now being used therapeutically in emergency rooms as well as pain management and stress reduction programs. Do you have a favorite way to destress or something that you do that works for you when stressed? Think about if you have ever used a mindfulness strategy and found that it helped you. You can share these with your friends or just focus on them yourself.

Remember to use music or other mindfulness strategies to help reduce racing thoughts or overthinking.
