It's hard for us as human beings to deal with things in life that cause us inner turmoil, fear, anxiety, depression, or guilt. These emotions are so heavy and hard to deal with.
So, we seek a respite - we seek something to help us get away from it all. There are many ways that we can distract ourselves from the things that are causing us pain.
We can do this in a positive way, such as meditation, listening to music, or perhaps walking in a beautiful garden.
But, if instead, we're consistently doing something self-destructive, such as getting high, getting drunk, or choosing some other unhealthy distraction, then it might be time to seek help.
Board certified Music Therapist, Tim Ringgold, joins me today to share how music interacts with the brain and why this is relevant to addiction treatment and recovery.
