Consider Learning an Instrument

In the video below Anita Collins examines long-term, positive effects of music. 

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What's going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians' brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout.

Musicians of El Dorado County

I play the drum set, and I usually play for about 30 minutes. When I practice for the Oak Ridge drum line, so music can get pretty tough, but after a long day, sitting down and playing helps me relax and take my mind off things. It's a very creative outlet that I love to do.
