So many people have a dependence on this substance that it's considered natural. Far from it. This stuff is harmful to your health.
I'm talking about the addiction to noise. Yes, noise.
The TV-is-always-on-in-the-background-noise, constant traffic rumble, radio babble, and loud deafening music. All are low frequency sounds that are damaging your brain cells.
But they're noises everyone takes for granted. I don't anymore and nor should you.
Noise is the key ingredient to a stressed-out life. But why is it so addicting? Because it makes you think you're alive. Because it raises your adrenaline to the point where you wake up.
Spiking your adrenal glands this way is not good for your health. It's downright dangerous when done on a continuous basis. Noise numbs your brainwaves. For many people noise invades their day from the time they wake up until they slump back into bed.
Let's say the radio alarm wakes you up. After your shower you switch on the radio or TV while you rush to make coffee and a quick breakfast. On the way to work you keep the radio on to keep you company during your mindless drive. At work, computers and printers, heaters and A/Cs hum all day. You go outside to eat lunch and hear traffic pass you by.
Then it's all reversed as you head home, mind and body exhausted. If you can muster up the energy to exercise you do so while plugged into your iPod. By the time you hit the sack your mind is so overloaded with noise you sleep restlessly.
The plain and simple fact is that exposing ears to noise most of the day creates a lesser mind.
If you train in a gym that blasts loud music and has the TV disrupting your focus then consider switching to another gym so you can work out in peace and quiet. It's not a good idea to let music raise your heartbeat. Do that while exercising.
The best way to quit noise addiction is to check into some new riffs. And turn the low frequency waste off.
Music that simultaneously recharges And relaxes you is hard to find. Most classical music fits the bill and won't damage your eardrums or your brain cells. The only beats you'll hear are the good kind.
Soothe your mind and refresh your body the natural, quiet way. Choose positively charged classical music.
