The essence of music
A good tune can brighten up a gloomy day. It can make you forget your worries, albeit for a little while, which is sometimes all you really need to get back at it again. Evana Manandhar from ApEx talked to three youths to find out the importance of music in their lives. In the process, we delve into its multifaceted nature, its impact on our lives, and its profound influence on our emotions and behaviors.

Music has been an unwavering lifeline, a steadfast companion during my darkest moments. It’s been a warm embrace when I’ve felt really low. During those times when happiness was elusive, music emerged as a subtle motivator, infusing me with renewed energy and resolve. My playlist of cherished tunes is perhaps my most loyal friend, accompanying me in the solitude of my showers and infusing those intimate moments with a sense of comfort and familiarity. During grueling gym sessions, music serves as a beacon of motivation, pushing me to break through my physical and emotional barriers. In moments of isolation, when I have felt disconnected from the world, music has been my silent confidant. You can say that music reminds me of life’s beauty, even in the face of adversity.

Music is an ever-present and cherished companion. It’s a potent stress reliever and a distraction that brings positivity and tranquility. It often whisks me away from life’s worries, offering relaxation, sharpened focus, and an instant mood lift. Whenever I’m sad, music helps elevate my spirits. Whether it’s tackling household chores or preparing for the day ahead, music is a compulsory part of my routine, infusing each task with rhythm and joy.
Music transcends mere sound. I believe it embodies emotions that resonate with everyone. It makes everything seem bearable and cheers me up. I’d say music is not just a collection of notes but it’s actually a powerful emotion that enriches our lives.

I’ve noticed a significant shift in my music-listening habits since moving to Australia from Nepal. Back in Nepal, music was primarily reserved for bedtime or shower time, providing a soothing end to the day. But now music has become a constant companion, woven seamlessly into my daily routine. I listen to music during my commute, at work, and while doing chores like cleaning the house, doing laundry, and washing dishes. It has evolved from a nighttime ritual to an essential part of my day-to-day life. This transformation is more than just a change in habit. It’s become a source of solace and respite amidst the demands of work and study. Music, with its ability to calm the mind and provide moments of peace, has become a vital thread in the fabric of my life in Australia, offering comfort and balance in the midst of a bustling and busy new environment.
