Music can touch the mind, body, and soul in such a beautiful and unique way that we should all have more music in our lives, whether we’re performing it, listening to it peacefully, or joyfully dancing around the home to our favorite tracks.
There are people who believe that God created music not only to praise him but also to make our lives here on earth so much more joyful, so why not try out one of the following fun ways to let music bring more peace and joy to your home?
Create a joyful playlist
Creating a playlist of your favorite hymns, classical pieces of music, and even contemporary pop songs, that you can play around the house whenever you need a quick pick-me-up, is a great way to use music to make your home a happier one, and thanks to platforms like Spotify, it has never been easier to do.
Start a family band
Having every family member an instrument and letting them play it to praise God or simply feel the pure joy of living on this planet is a great way to up the joy quota in your home. If you get good, you could even sell your music on iTunes to spread that music to other people outside of your home too. Music brings people together like few other things are able.
Do some karaoke
The voice is an instrument just like any other, so if you’re looking for a way to have some good wholesome fun with the family, why not take turns at blasting out your favorite tracks. Everyone will soon get into the spirit and you’ll all be laughing, appreciating, and building closeness as you do.
Dance like no one is watching
If you’re having a tough day, an easy way to make the stresses melt away is to turn on your favorite playlist and simply dance around the house; dance like no one is watching you, and don’t be afraid to look a little silly or uncoordinated – just focus on having a blast, and before you know it, you will be feeling totally relaxed. It’ll give you a great workout too.
Sing your prayers
If you pray each night, why not turn that prayer into a song that will make your heart sing. God will appreciate a prayer in the form of a song just as much, if not more, than any other, and it will enable you to really pray with conviction and end the night with a content heart.
Share your favorites
A fun way to bond with the family and have a nice peaceful day is to each share one or two of your favorite songs. Gather around the speaker and listen very carefully to each family member’s choices. Then, discuss why they love the song, what it means to them, and how it brings them joy. You’ll learn more about each other and potentially find a whole bunch of new songs to love.
Music is important, so make sure it is always present in your home.
