I read that children aren’t the only ones who can reap the benefits of learning an instrument. Adults can also gain tremendously from playing a musical instrument. Music has been shown to reduce stress, increase productivity, develop creativity and build confidence.
I bought myself a guitar about a month ago because I was determined to learn how to play it. Since then I’ve been devoting a little time nearly each day watching YouTube videos and studying guitar tablature. This evening I decided to do a quick look back at my progress and couldn’t help but laugh out loud. It’s a little embarrassing but nonetheless I’m sharing because I’ve observed that through my mistakes I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t furthermore I discovered that I have slightly improved and that feels good.
Get out there and try something new. Have fun, laugh with yourself, be un-structured and carefree at least for a few moments each day.
