Some of us use music to wind up in the morning. I know I do. I love classic rock for getting myself energized and rocking productively in the morning. Like an alderman getting ready to speak at council who went to the church choir to fill his heart with spirit and motivation, I, too, use music to shape the way my heart feels. I know music has the power to do this because music is vibration, and the protons and neutrons in our atoms are also vibrating. Music has the wherewithal to shape our emotions in ways no other medium has.

So for those of you who are like me and enjoy music to wake up and get the day started, have you considered also using music to calm down and settle at the end of the day? Here I will recommend some good music for doing this:

  1. The Gregorian Chant
  2. Bach
  3. Vivaldi
  4. Mediterranean mandolin music
  5. Renaissance lute music
  6. Ancient Chinese music

I highly recommend checking these out for winding down at the end of the day. Especially after hitting the gym and getting your system all hyped up, this calming music has the potential to alleviate our tensions and stresses so that we can relax, sit down and read a book without twitching in our seats. Try it!

And if all else fails, you can always listen to some good folk music!

Best of luck in your relaxation tonight!
