Listening and playing music can be therapeutic
Some artists use their music to express their emotions and it is a cathartic experience. It is better to make a song out of it instead of letting it eat you from the inside. It is also a great distraction. We all have a tendency to over think due to which we come across a lot of emotions and thoughts which are not comforting or even disturbing at times. Music can help us to get out mind off of such thoughts. So, whenever you are feeling that you are sinking into your own thoughts put on your favourite song and sings along, you could even dance if you like, it will most definitely help you.
