Week Thirty Seven Wednesday’s Grateful List 

Today I am grateful for music.

This morning a watched on ABC a program on Catalyst called Music On the Brain. It is an episode that reveals how personalized playlists can reawaken the brains of people with dementia.  I don’t have dementia but it did get me thinking about the benefits of music.

Here is a list of how music benefits our health.

  • It improves visual and verbal skills
  • Keeps an aging brain happier.
  • Makes you happier.
  • Music improves vascular health such as heartbeat, pulse rate and blood pressure.
  • It improves sleep quality
  • Boosts your immune system and reduces pain.
  • Reduces depression and anxiety


So today I am grateful I love singing and I that I have a lovely singing teacher who helps me to sing better.

Today I am grateful for my friend Dave Shelberg who has given me the opportunity to sing in public.

Today I am grateful that we have so much amazing live music that I can go to in Brisbane. I am off to the Supreme Dreams in a week.

Today I am grateful that we have a great sound system at home that I can listen to music through.

Today I am grateful that I have hearing to be able to listen to this music.

Here is a playlist to some of my favorite music.

    Maureen was singing to me at 4.30 this morning. Is there a better way to start your day?
