EQ Moment #4:
Elderly Man in Nursing Home Reacts to Hearing Music from His Era
Henry has spent the last 10 years in a quasi-vegetative state in a nursing home. He was depressed and unresponsive until familiar tunes made him light up like the Fourth of July. When they placed the headphones over his ears, Henry became animated and alive again. They say music is a “quickening art.” Henry felt the same energy, pleasure, and passion that he had before his illness. Music took him back to a time when he felt strong and well. Music had the power to excite him as he returned to an era when music made sense to him. It boosted his senses.
If music can do this for Henry and his hibernating mind, imagine what music can do for you on a daily basis. If you’re feeling a little under the weather or if you need a little rejuvenating before a big meeting or presentation, put on that special tune that evokes emotions that will put you in the right mood.
