Coping with stress does not have to take up any time or money. Although practices such as yoga and meditation are seen as popular forms of dealing with stress, it is also true that the arts help to prevent anxiety. Music acts as a distraction at the same time as it helps to explore emotions. This means that it can be used as a great device for freeing the mind of all its day-to-day woes and anxieties.
