Stress Ridden?

I heard something very interesting on the radio this morning about stress. It was said that those who play or practice on musical instruments compared to those that don't play musical instruments have no or a lesser degree of stress.

I actually heard contemporary jazz artist, Dave Koz and another LA radio station host discuss this. If this is really true as the "experts" say, we need more people opening those old instrument cases and start blowing that horn, strumming those guitar strings, banging on that tamborine or playing on whatever instrument it takes to get rid of stress.

I know I'm happy & stress free when I'm playing music! Something to think about.

Hi Missy,

Yes, I think playing music is a good way to relieve stress! Take out you instrument and play on.
