The Healing Power of Music: A DJ's Journey Through Wellness

Hi everyone! I'm Kelly Michailidis, and while many of you know me as a nurse with the NHS, you might be surprised to learn that I'm also an avid DJ. Music has always been a huge part of my life, and I’ve discovered that it plays a crucial role in wellness. Today, I want to share my journey and how music can be a powerful tool for healing and well-being.

The Rhythm of Self-Care

Balancing a demanding job in healthcare while pursuing my passion for DJing has taught me a lot about self-care. Music provides a sanctuary where I can escape, recharge, and find peace. Just like taking moments of quiet, immersing yourself in your favorite tunes can be incredibly rejuvenating. Whether it's playing or listening, music helps soothe the soul.

Stress Relief Through Beats

Stress is an unavoidable part of life, especially in a high-stakes environment like healthcare. Over the years, I’ve found that DJing and even just listening to music can significantly reduce stress levels. The rhythm and melodies act as a form of therapy, helping to calm the mind and alleviate tension. Studies show that music therapy can have profound effects on stress management.

Creating Connections

One of the most beautiful aspects of being a DJ is the ability to connect with people through music. It’s a universal language that transcends boundaries, bringing people together. Building a strong support system is crucial for wellness, and music can be the perfect medium to foster those connections. According to research, social interactions and connections made through music can improve mental health and overall well-being.

Physical and Mental Health Benefits

Music is not just good for the soul; it’s great for the body too. Dancing to your favorite beats is a fun way to stay active and fit. Physical activity, as we know, releases endorphins, which are natural mood lifters. Additionally, learning to play an instrument or engaging in musical activities can enhance cognitive functions and provide mental stimulation. Check out these NHS exercise resources to learn more about incorporating physical activity into your routine.

Finding Balance

Striking a balance between work, passion, and personal life can be challenging but is essential for long-term wellness. DJing has taught me to carve out time for what I love, which in turn makes me more effective in my professional life. It's about finding harmony in all aspects of life.
