Effects of Music: Listening to music is one of the most important and common activities we all perform all day long. Once you put on your earphones and play your favorite music, it is like ignoring the outer world and focusing on your inner world. One of the causes of the fact that we see nearly all of the people we encounter on the street or on the bus is that. After a long and tiring day, we all need a therapy to recover from this mental and physical burden and music is one of the best ways to do so.
