The power of music can transform your home.
There’s a reason that young kids love music. It’s not only soothing to their ears; it’s great for their soul. A compelling song can make you happy when you’re sad or bring perspective to an otherwise depressing situation. That’s why it’s important to fill your house with good music. Try putting a stereo in the main room of your house — the room where you spend most of your time. Then stock it with your favourite CDs. You don’t have to crank up the volume — just have it playing in the background as you go about your day. It’s amazing what it can do to lift your spirits.
While you’re at it get a small CD player for your child’s room and some good kids’ music. You’ll be giving them a love for music.
