Some relaxing ambient, electronic, or classic background music of my choosing while I work from home.
The sound of running water and rustling leaves while I meditate outside in a park on a beautiful day.
Some hold music (also known as ‘muzak’) while I wait thirty minutes for customer service to pick up the phone.
Some angry fighting and yelling in the kitchen in the morning.
Someone talking about things that don’t make sense, interest me personally, or perhaps even anger me.
We don’t always get to choose what we listen to, but we do get to choose whether we fight it, and how we label it.
Even the sounds that you don’t choose have something to offer.
