You certainly don’t have to be a musician in order to appreciate music. No more than you need to be an athlete to appreciate a good football or basketball game.
Music has a way of calming my soul and grounding me in order to begin again. Or invigorate and inspire me.
For me, the simpler the better. Listening to an instrumental of an acoustic guitar in the wee hours of the morning while at my desk and writing these blogs can be exactly what I need to get the day started.
It can put me into a wonderful flow state and/or calm my anxious mind as I get some tasks done and slip into the work day.
Who knows, you just might find the urge to pick up an instrument and play a bit.
