If for any reason you are stressed or feeling down about life or having to deal with a death around you, know that there are things which you can do to help. Sound and Music were given to us for a reason.
Your best, most receptive way to take in this form of relaxation and calm is to be lying down, with as little light as possible. Allow the sounds or the music to allow your mind to drift. The less you focus on your problems or what is bothering you, the more likely that you will be able to enter a much more relaxed state of mind.
