Just before I sat down to create the structure of this article I booted up Pandora on my Nexus 7. You don’t need to read much of this article to know that I am a big fan of the streaming service. But you’re probably here because you don’t know a thing about Pandora, and what it can offer you. If you’re in search of new music to listen to, then its time you get to know the app that is Pandora (available for both Android and iOS devices).
The effect on music on reading efficiency can be different for different persons. While it may a distraction to some people, many people do not feel comfortable in the complete silence. For them silence itself can be a distraction, which does not allow them to concentrate. If it is the case for you then you will benefit from background music.
I have a great winter beanie from Nike that has speakers in it. You can hook your mp3 player to it and hear the music in your little speakers over your ears. I find this much more comfortable than the ear buds and I also think it is safer because I don’t have to turn it up as loud to hear it and since it is over my ears instead of in my ears, I can hear the sounds around me better.
Can you imagine attending a wedding without music being played? The music is used to set the tone of the proceedings. In the wedding proceedings, first comes the bright cheerful albeniz guitar announcing the arrival of the bride. Followed by the dignified music of the bride with her entourage proceeding down the aisle, then the solemn music as the ceremony proceeds and the register is signed followed by the joyful music as the bride and groom leave the church for their new happy life. Happy music is used to signify the happy life to follow.
The first tip is too really sit down and evaluate the music that you listen to music to, compared to the meditation. If it has too much of a beat to it, or has songs that you really like, this can be distracting. You may find yourself listening to the music more, getting into the songs or whatever, and paying less attention to doing your meditation.
Further, wireless Bluetooth speakers work with all Bluetooth enabled devices, be it MP3 players or phones. If you don’t like lugging around a separate MP3 device, you can simply use your phone to control the music in your house.
It is my fervent wish that you will go to concerts, opera, ballet and such places and enjoy the live music. I also hope you might discover the pleasure of silence if it is not part of your regular routine.
