To celebrate our 75th anniversary we are sharing a series of resources throughout the year that build on all of the research and knowledge Music in Hospitals & Care has gained about music and health. We hope you will find them useful whether you are just looking to learn more about the benefits, or if you would like to connect through live music with yourself, a loved one, or someone you support in a health or care setting.
The second resource we would like to share is an animated guide on how to listen to music mindfully. Everyone can use simple exercises such as this to help them slow down and reconnect.
Mindfulness is being fully present in the moment and paying attention to our thoughts and feelings without judgment. Mindful music listening and other regular mindfulness practices can have many benefits, including helping to improve your focus, mood and sleep.
Please give today to help improve the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.
