There are many good reasons why you might want to ditch your iPod or iPhone.
It may be less powerful, less capable, less secure or more prone to overheating than the competition.
Or it may just be too much of an annoyance.
But there’s one thing most people don’t know about the music they listen to: it’s actually bad for us.
Here are five reasons why.1.
We listen to music to get away from it.
Most of us listen to it for short bursts of pleasure, like a few minutes of quiet reading, a few laughs or a few good songs.
But we’re also doing so to escape boredom.
We use the music as a way to distract ourselves from a frustrating, boring, or emotionally draining task, such as studying for a test or taking a test for the first time.
We also use the sound of our favourite music to distract us from the pain of the world.
The short bursts we’re listening to have a negative effect on our mental health.
People who use music as distraction can’t sleep well, have mood swings, are less productive and often struggle with addiction.
If you listen to more than five minutes a day, you’re at greater risk of suffering from anxiety and depression, a serious problem that can have a devastating effect on your life.2.
We love music for the people we love.
Music is an intimate part of who we are.
People have a deep and personal connection with music.
They feel connected to the songs that come out of their ears, even when those songs are boring.
Music can be a way of connecting with a community that doesn’t seem to exist for most of us.
This is why, in the words of the late poet Jane Austen, “Music is an art which we love, not because it’s a good thing but because it makes us feel.”
The idea that music can be addictive is an important one.3.
We can’t afford to get rid of the music.
We spend far more time listening to music than listening to other types of media, such the internet.
As a result, we spend far less time actually listening to our favourite tunes.
The reason we listen is because we want to.
The music is there to make us feel happy, to bring us closer to the people and places we love and connect us to the world around us.
We don’t have to leave the music, because we love it.
But it can also feel like a waste if we can’t find another way to listen to what we like.4.
Music’s popularity is driven by the popularity of certain artists.
It’s important to recognise that the music we listen and the people who use it are also the people making the music itself.
In the UK, the number of songs in the Top 100 of the BBC Singles Chart has increased by almost 100 per cent since the year 2000, and it’s only just starting to recover.
This year, the top 10 will be dominated by two people: a singer who’s in the same band as us and the songwriter who’s also a member of that band.5.
We need to be reminded that there are other forms of music besides country music.
People use music to escape from boredom, because it offers them a chance to relax, to get some exercise, to find a social group or a friend.
It can also serve as a distraction.
Music has the potential to be used as a tool to help people understand the world, or to entertain, but only if it’s used correctly.
