If you are on an outdoor family activity in a forested area, sit in silence and listen. The sounds of nature calm you. Maybe it’s the sound of rustling leaves. Or the early morning composition of birds calling out to the world. A stream rushing over rocks and past grassy banks can transport you into another world.
Music can bring powerful emotions and feelings. Ever get goosebumps when listening to a live performance? Ever turn on a particular genre of music to demand a change in your mood or to calm down? Nature and music have physical, emotional, and mental effects on the human psyche. They are both critical to human life.
