How I Use the Music Marking
As someone with schizophrenia, I get distracted by so many things. Thoughts, sights, sounds, delusions, paranoia, hallucinations, patterns, smells, feelings, pains, phantom pains, the list goes on.
Music is a way to focus my mind and turn me away from all of the intrusive experiences. It makes me more present to the moment. However, I can't always turn up the volume and jam out wherever I want.
By focusing on the Music marking, I replicate the calming and focusing effects of music itself. I become grounded, happier, and saner.
