Listening to music actually distress our minds. Mostly, listening to quiet and light music may help you lower the pulse and heartbeat rate, lower blood pressure and decrease the level of stress hormones in the body. The choice of listening to which type of music is your preference. But kindly don't listen to music which uses abusive language or which has many loud beats. It also help us explore our emotions. Thus, it is a great aid for meditation and decreasing the chances of mind wandering.
