Meditation is generally advised to practice alone due to personalised motivation, unique methods adopted by everyone and the requirement of a peaceful environment. Therefore, people generally prefer practising meditation alone which can lead to lesser motivation. However, there is something that can be the best companion to practice meditation i.e. Music.
A gentle music piece can change the meditation session 360 degrees by adding harmony, melody and happiness to the session. The beautiful music sound accompanied by a soothing environment helps the practitioner in combating depression or demotivation. A melodious soundtrack can make the practitioner calmer and converts the meditation into an effective one by making the surroundings more peaceful and ecstatic. Music can also lift your mood, slow your breathing, and create other stress-reducing changes. A preferred music genre or soul soothing can calm the physiology without making a conscious effort and alleviate stress from the mind.

Sounds of Nature
Nature has a bouquet of benefits. The nature that helps people feel calmer with its one glimpse, can also do wonders in the form of sound. The sound of sea waves, wind, birds, etc can really soothe minds and hearts by bringing the practitioners closer to nature. People living in metropolitan cities and leading hectic lives don’t get the chance to meet the true nature regularly and can really connect with nature during their course of a meditation session. Sounds of nature can help people in disconnecting with disturbing sounds of TV, honking, ringing, etc that are harmful to humans and give them a peaceful and quiet experience by leading to an effective meditation session.
Somebody following Christianity rigorously, can use Christian music in their meditation practice. And those who are not followers of Christianity can also leverage this gentle genre of music. Interestingly, Christian music consists of traditional and modern touch that makes it widely popular amongst the old and young generations, both. Christian meditation music is focused on intense thoughts such as the Bible scriptures and reflecting on their meaning in the context of the love of God with soothing sounds behind it. Christian music offsets distress that allows people to go into a deeper state of meditation.
Make your favourite genre of music your best meditation companion to have an effective and fun meditation session every time you do it.
