When you’re an adult, it’s easy to forget what it’s like to be as free as a child, playing and laughing without abandon or any cares in the world. The problem is, play is just as important to your well-being as fulfilling your responsibilities such as work, maintaining a household and caring for others, yet we don’t make time in our lives for it. Why not plug in some baby music so you can unplug from the stress of your life and play like a child again?
Studies show that children laugh nearly 400 times a day, while adults typically indulge in laughter less than 15 times per day. It’s a scary prospect when you look at it from those statistics. Think about how hard your child laughs and lights up when you sing children's songs to them or they watch baby music DVDs. Music is like an unlimited source of fun for them.
Whether you’re a toddler or a senior, play is vital in reducing stress and increasing happiness. Setting aside some time to dedicate to a hobby or one of your favorite activities is a must. But when you have small children, it can be difficult to find that “me-time.” Baby music is a great way to do double duty for both yourself and your child.
Have you ever watched the baby music DVDs you play for your child? There’s a reason your kids are giggling so much when they watch them. They quickly are inspired to sing and dance along, and just watching them have fun can help you de-stress.
When you actually sit and watch baby music DVDs, you can get into that state where you lose all track of time. The stories and fun baby music can actually bring you back to your own childhood, making you reminisce and once again enjoy the times you had as a child.
When you sing along with your child to children’s songs, you not only bond with your child, but you lose yourself in the flow of play and get inspired to be creative and imaginative. Open your mind to this method of sharing quality time with your child—you’ll be surprised at how much you get out of it.
