Music therapy has been well documented to have a positive impact on your mental and physical health. It has this magical, mysterious power that transcends all boundaries, language, culture and time. It brings harmony into your life when everything feels a bit out of tune (I couldn’t help it!) I recently wrote about the health benefits of keeping a journal.

I hoard sentimental clutter. I kept a candle for 20 years because my friend gave me as gift from her holiday in Marrakesh. I refused to chuck it out even after it had melted when I left it next to a radiator. Soft toys from my childhood, old school projects, souvenirs and even birthday cards. I have a book full of ticket stubs of special places I have visited or gigs that I went to. Pebbles from beaches, plane tickets, Spanish pesetas, travel books from 2007. Anything that holds a precious memory I am pained to give up.
