Rediscover Quietness

Car with many big speakers

Listen to this postI use to drive a sport car fitted with an excellent sound system. I improved that system with more electronic gadgets that made the sound loader and crisper. I used to increase the sound volume so high that made the side mirrors shake with the beat of the drums in the song. I only lower the value when I stop at the traffic light so as I do not bather the drivers next to me. That was then, but now, I just smile when I hear the music coming from the passing sport cars and remember how much I enjoy that back then.

I punished my ears for about 18 months with load music until one day I drove the car while the stereo was off. It was a relaxing and comfortable feeling. Quite, no noise at all, just the sound of the air coming from the window. I drove for about 15 minutes then I realized that I am missing the music, so I switched on the stereo, but switched it off immediately. I rediscover quietness and the comfort it brings with it. I was like carrying extra wight for 18 months and then suddenly dropped it down. Now I only listen to smooth jazz while working on the computer and listen to audio-books while driving. I wonder what other drivers listen to these days?

    • You got that right. I am ageing from the outside, but maintaining my age from within (that is the philosophical way of saying I am old!)🙂

    I find listening to soft music or any educationl programme on radio very relaxing especiall if i’m in a good mood,but if i’m not i prefer to turn on high volume music and drive in to a far and quiet place away from people so not to disturb them.
    The psychology behind turning on loud music is to shut down the ifluences from the external environment trying not to think of any thing specific.On the contrary listening to soft music or audiobooks opens up the person to the external environment and allowing the person to see the whole picture from the outside.

    • nice explanation to the discussed phenomena. Why don’t you try the quietness for a change ans see the difference?
