Elevate your mood with positive music
If you use drum therapy with youth groups to build engagement or play drums purely for your enjoyment, you know that drumming is good for mental health.
So how can we increase our wellbeing even further with drumming? As you know we don’t need to be a musician to gain the benefits of drumming. Just by adding simple elements to our drum practice we can shift our mood, empower our spiritual practice and enhance wellbeing.
Rhythms that calm the mind
Whether its listening to music or playing in a facilitated community drum circle, these experiences are like meditation. For those who struggle to silence the mind or meditate, making music is one of the next best ways to bring mindfulness and self-awareness into our life.
I have created a downloadable student resource drumming package called Ambient Rhythms with 40 affirmation ecards and 8 play-along mp3 audio tracks. The rhythm cards are designed to give direction and bring an intention for your drum practice. Each card has a unique colour design, worded affirmation and rhythm to enhance the intention. Like meditation, when we have an intention, we can go even deeper into that experience of that positive affirmation.
You can either play the rhythm card on its own or with the chosen audio track to inspire emotional connection. Each play-along track is with healing in mind and at evidence-based tempo to calm the mind. The play along songs has 4 healing elements of music – rhythm, harmony, melody, silence. All powerful elements for any healing or spiritual practice. I also feature these musical elements and more in Positive Music rhythm wellness facilitator training for those want you facilitate their own groups.
My aim is to bring more music into people’s lives and bring awareness of how powerful music is for our wellbeing. It can:
- Give our feelings a voice
- Connect us to our essence
- Calm the mind and sooth the soul
- Bring us into the now
- Stimulate creativity
- Enhance self-awareness
- Increase happiness and joy
- And the list goes on…
