Meditation by itself is already an excellent way to relieve stress. By itself it usually would suffice as one of the most effective ways to combat stress and just make life much easier. That is why it is advisable to those who are facing every kind of problem or stressful situation, since the chances of succeeding and getting over the troubles you are facing is quite high. And why wouldn’t it be ideal, when you are able to attain a kind of calmness that is otherwise unattainable and difficult to accomplish. A relaxation that is beneficial to both the mind and body is what meditation can provide, and who in his right mind wouldn’t like such benefits?
Those were the very things that I sought when I turned to meditation for help. It was a dark and sad time in my life, and I knew then that things had to change, or else things might take a turn for the worse. When I decided to turn to meditation, I was not really hoping for much, and I was indeed pleasantly surprised when I felt good right after the first few sessions. As I progressed through the process, I marveled at how liberating and empowering it actually is. At that point, I wondered why I didn’t turn to it earlier. But since there already nothing that I could do about it at that point, I just became thankful that I was finally meditating.
Meditation and Classical Music
By itself, meditation is already a splendid way to attain a different kind of relaxation. This is the kind of relaxation that not only benefits the body and the mind, but also the spirit. That alone should already be sufficient and in many it is, although there are things that could be done to make it even more effective. Yes, there are things that could very well serve as supplements to what meditation could provide by itself. One of these is music, which can also help relax the mind and body. It is easy to see how and why music could help meditation, or at least the relaxation that is sought by most people, since good music speaks directly to the soul. Perhaps the best kind of music for this purpose is classical music, with its deep and meaningful beauty.
Here is a list of some of the best classical music for meditation:
• Be Thou Near Me by J.S. Bach
• Concerto in G Minor for flute and strings by J.S. Bach
• Concerto Number 1 in F by G.F. Handel
• The Four Seasons by A. Vivaldi
