Stress Relief

For most people in Jamaica, and around the world for that matter, music is one of the best sources of relaxation; it grabs a hold of our heads and boldly massages our temples, refusing to release its spell until we give in and let go of all the grime of the day.  When I listen to music I hear words of encouragement and inspiration. I hear drums, and envision a dance or a chant of humans flowing as one. Music can also take me to a place of total peace and tranquility, where there is just me and nature; trees, flowers, fruits, birds, lizards, butterflies, dragonflies, and my girl.

When I hear music my body responds automatically to the rhythms and soon I am dancing; soon I am flowing, spinning, twirling, and smiling. When I hear music I am happy. 

Check out the different experiences these three men are having while listening to music. This is a perfect example of when music starts playing…real, inspirational, and soulful music…there is absolutely no way anyone can remember the matrix of the day…’so hit me with music’.


Trenchtown Rock
By: Bob Marley
One good thing about music,
When it hits, you feel no pain.
So hit me with music, yeah,
Hit me with music.
Brutalize me with music.
