Extended Activity #1
Explore your music listening habits with four words culled from William Congreve’s quote from the play The Mourning Bride: “Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.”
Discover these four words to recognize music’s profound effect on a person’s life: Savage, Breast, Beast, and Mindset. Read more about your music listening habits at “Music Powers Potential: Good, Bad, Ugly” https://themusic4life.com/music-powers-potential-good-bad-and-ugly
Extended Activity #2
Analyze your five Health Zones responding to specific questions by journaling your thoughts on the Music4Life® Habits Journal (Habit 1, Activity 2). Download and print the journal at themusic4life.com/resources to track all your results, or use a personal journal to record your information.
This activity is to simply observe and journal your responses, recognizing the zones you are in.
Are you overly fatigued? Do you have panic attacks? Is there another health concern?
Are you experiencing a lot of anger, anxiety, sadness, depression or apathy?
Are you having negative or racing thoughts?
Are you isolating yourself from others or do you like partying all the time?
Do you feel disconnected to your inner spirit or higher power?
If any of your responses to the questions are “yes,” then you may be stuck in a Chronic Comfort Zone™ (referenced in upcoming Empowerment Habits).
Extended Activity #3
Go to themusic4life.com/self-assessment-quiz to submit your responses, then follow the process to create a username and password to access your results.
Draw your emotional shape from the Music4Life® Self-Assessment evaluation representing your U.S.E. mood zones onto your Music4Life Habits Journal (Activity 3).
Read and journal your self-assessment results to understand your Emotional Shape, mood zones, and observations.
Extended Activity #4
Follow these three steps journaling your responses on the Music4Life® Habits Journal (Activity 4). If you didn’t print it already from Habit 1, Activities #2 & #3, download and print the Music4Life Habits Journal at themusic4life.com/resources to track all your results, or use a personal journal to record your information.
If you agree with any of the experiences in Step #3, they could lead to a Chronic Comfort Zone™. Be aware of the condition of your Emotional Health Zone as it impacts your Physical, Mental/Cognitive, Social and Spiritual Health Zones.
Extended Activity #5
Review your Music4Life® Habits Journal Activities 2, 3 and 4 with these questions.
If you answer yes to these questions, you could become trapped in one of three Chronic Comfort Zones™ identified in Music4Life’s Music Medicine Protocol. These zones complicate life with being caught in a prevailing mood that represses or suppresses other emotions. Be aware of these three Chronic Comfort Zones for potential entrapment: Unsettled, Soothed and Energized moods.
