You must be thinking that I have gone crazy. How is Music-related with CA??
Ok lemme give you some examples:-
1. Has that ever happened with you that you are trying to concentrate very hard in understanding any concept of Law or IT&SM but who couldn’t do it.
2. You are studying for past 2 hrs but your effective study is 0.
3. You are feeling very stressed and lacking the mindset required for CA study.
Music can help you to overcome the above mentioned problems. How? That only we are going to discuss in this article!!
So let’s start our Musical Journey…..
Music - A Perfect Stress Buster
Life of a C.A. Student is full of stress and anxiety. He has to make balance between his office i.e. Articleship + Coaching + Self-Study + Personal. No need to explain, you can easily analyze when you are in hurry to reach the office thinking of some of your personal tensions and then the whole day hectic schedule where there is no time to relax and release your stress. If you are doing your Articleship in a Metropolitan city like Delhi, then to add to your worries are noise pollution & air pollution leading to a whole distress and discomfort.
Music is a great way to relive your day to day stress. Music’s ubiquity and portability has made it the number one stress buster. It is a matter of fact that everyone on this earth has an inclination towards listening good quality music.
Music of Nature
This part is very close to my heart. Actually I believe that Music is not only what comes from a CD player. But natural sounds like chirping of birds, water flowing in a river, smooth blowing of wind and movement of leaves constitute Music.
Whenever I feel low and finds difficult to concentrate I spend time at a quiet place listening to sound of nature and thereby gains energy to perform my work….
Music creates new pathways in Brain
According to me Music increases our Reasoning and Analytical skills but for a short period lasting may be few hours. Music seems to prime our brains for certain kinds of thinking. After listening to classical music, adults can do certain spatial tasks more quickly, such as putting together a jigsaw puzzle.
Earning to play an instrument may have an even longer effect on certain thinking skills.
Many people also believe that any music you respond to positively will work for you, regardless of its content.
Musical Combo of Meditation with Chanting (A form of Music)
Well I got it’s inspiration from a Yoga program of Baba Ramdev. He was asking people to chant OM as a measure to Meditation. The real concept behind this was, Music is produced from sound, and sound affects our sense perception in many ways. Yoga believes that the heart and other organs of the body vibrate at particular sound frequencies. It has positive effect on you if you suffer from some pain or stress. It seems to soothe both the mind and the body.
Some Songs that you may try as Stress Buster (My own experience)
1. Pehla Nasha (Jo Jeeta vo hi sikander)
2. Hero (Enrique)
3. Mohabbat Kabhi Maine (Sonu Nigam Album)
4. Deewana (Sonu Nigam Album)
5. Hoshwalon ko khabar kya (Sarfarosh)
6. My Heart will go on (Titanic)
7. Any Kumar Sanu song
8. Classical or old songs
So this ends my Musical Article. I hope you must have enjoyed it and will apply it in CA. As usual will wait for your comments….!!
