No one was able to predict that a worldwide crisis that can be compared to the last two World Wars would happen this year. In March, the coronavirus disease of 2019, more popularly known as COVID-19, was declared as a pandemic, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has already warned countries all over the world that the deadly virus causing this pneumonia-like illness, the 2019 novel coronavirus or the SARS-CoV 2, can spread at a rapid rate. In just a blink of an eye, COVID-19 cases worldwide have exploded exponentially. Major cities have no choice but to enforce strict lockdown measures to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2.

Locking yourself at home and spending time with those people nearby seem doable. Cancelling your attendance at a music festival is also one of the important decisions that you must do. After all, we are putting ourselves in isolation to help put an end to the virus. As the days, weeks, or months go by, however, you will realize that being separated from the rest of the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic can give you unbearable anxiety. You will even find it hard to enjoy your favorite home-made meals. Imagine not being able to treat yourself with delicious food due to stress-induced stomach aches. It’s a good thing that music is always here to lighten up the mood in your dining table.

Create A Playlist You Can Enjoy While Eating With The Family

There will always be little things that we encounter on a daily basis that easily trigger a panic or anxiety attack. It could be just a little inconvenience in our daily routine, and our whole day can be ruined in an instant. It is already a given that the ongoing pandemic is enough to rattle our nerves. However, we should do something to relax our mind and body in order for us to continue doing our usual activities. If the stress will also prevent us from eating well, we are doing ourselves more harm. Just visit to see for yourself.

The number one choice to relax ourselves while eating is to listen to your favorite music. In our current situation, music is still the best solution to instantly remove your anxieties. However, you must choose the right songs to listen to so that your nerves will calm down. For example, there is a different type of music that can help you focus on your workout, but in the case of a peaceful and relaxing dining moment, you must be listening to a less upbeat sound with a engaging harmony.

Many researches have proven that properly arranged harmonies, rhythms, and bass lines do help a lot in slowing down the listener’s heart rate, and even go all the way by reducing blood pressure and lowering levels of the stress hormone called cortisol. This is very helpful because stress only worsens or promotes the existence of health issues like heart disease, obesity, depression, gastrointestinal problems, asthma, and many others.
