The Mozart Effect
Are you ready to expand your sensory awareness and appreciation of music, or to experience the healing effects? Music- and sound-healing expert Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect, suggests that you spend ten minutes of undivided listening time a day for five days.
On the first day, pick out a piece of favorite instrumental music from your collection. While it plays, sit back or lie down with eyes closed. Breathe. Notice whatever you notice.
The second day, do some ordinary activity as you listen to the same piece, like washing dishes, opening your e-mail, or writing out checks.
The third day, listen and also act out conducting the music, as if you are a famous maestro.
The fourth day, listen to the same piece of music as you eat a meal.
On the fifth day, do the same relaxation method as on day one. Notice the difference in appreciation or effect from day one to day five.
