#1: Red

For those of you who don’t know, Red is the leader of the flock. Irritable, he is very prone to outbursts of rage when provoked. His anger notwithstanding, he is an effective and cunning leader who uses subterfuge to defend his eggs against the pigs, who often use all sorts of contraptions in their attempts to steal the eggs. Meanwhile, he is mainly an unsociable person, who does not enjoy the company of others, mostly due to his troubled childhood. Do you feel angry and annoyed today? Then Red is your bird of choice!

#2: The Blues

The Blues are the youngest members of the flock. They love to play pranks on both the pigs and other members of the flock. Naturally playful, they are often seen playing with each other, often to the dismay of Red and the other birds. Also, they possess awesome creative thinking skills and are shown to be very intelligent. In other words, they are resourceful birds who are able to work together to solve problems and design pranks on a grand scale. Feel playful and cheerful today? The blues are your friends!

#3: Chuck

Both Chuck and The Blues have many qualities in common. Chuck is known to be a playful bird as well and loves to do martial arts. He possesses high levels of natural confidence and isn’t afraid to show off his newly-learnt talents and tricks. He is a supportive friend and would do anything to help his friends. However, his arrogance has occasionally resulted in him being stuck in sticky situations. Nonetheless, he has a great passion for learning and exploring the unknown. Feel confident, curious and energetic? Chuck is your best friend for today!

#4: Bomb

It’s no wonder Bomb, Chuck and The Blues are always seen together. Also a fun person, Bomb loves to play games and read comic books. He is seen as an uncle in the eyes of The Blues and is a kind and gentle person at heart. He dislikes tedious tasks and almost always looks for the easiest way out of any problem. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t get the job done, though. Like the Blues, he is a creative and flexible person. The only difference is that he uses his talents to save time and expedite menial tasks. Feel lazy and relaxed today? Bomb is your friend!

#5: Terence

Terence is a silent bird. He enjoys being by himself, all the while staying away from the other birds. Do you see that facial expression up there? That’s his face 24/7. It never changes. It’s a face of perpetual and infinite boredom. It is because of this that many other members of the flock secretly fear him and are unable to bond with him. Other than this, we know nothing else about terence. Feel grumpy and bored today? Terence is your friend (even though Terence has no friends).

#6: Matilda

Matilda is seen as the motherly figure of the flock. She is mostly seen caring for the eggs and preparing meals for the birds. She is also a bird of peace and an admirer of nature. Thus, she is also seen in her garden tending to her flowers. She is a terence and tranquil bird most of the time, but her anger can occasionally boil over and when it does, it’s destructive. So, if you feel full of peace today, Matilda is your buddy! If you are also a mother, Matilda can also be your bird of choice!

Here’s Why You Should Listen To Music

Listening to music is something many of us do to counteract boredom and for good reason. Many of us subscribe to Spotify and Deezer, while others listen to the radio. Indeed, music is an integral part of our lives. Many of us wouldn’t be able to live without it. But did you know that it has many benefits? This article will show you why you should listen to music. Before you continue reading, do follow me and subscribe to my newsletter! Without further ado, let’s hop right in!

#1: Music Brings Us To Other Worlds

You could be listening to Vivaldi, Beethoven or Taylor Swift. Music offers us a break from our hectic lifestyles and brings us to other worlds. As you listen to Vivaldi’s pieces, you might imagine and contemplate the beauty of the four seasons. Meanwhile, Richard Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries gives you the feeling of adventure and excitement. You could feel like Rambo eating that sandwich or Indiana Jones driving to work. I am unable to account for all genres of music, but you get what I mean.

#2: Music Boosts Memory

The brain is a muscle. Use it and it grows; leave it and it atrophies. Music stimulates many parts of the mind. Like reading, listening to music ensures that our minds are in top shape and running well. Improved memory also comes with reduced stress and anxiety, which we will touch in point #3.

#3: It Relieves Stress and Anxiety

Music shifts our attention away from our surroundings. Our feelings of stress and anxiety fades away as we listen to the music we love. For example, some intense orchestral tracks might make you feel like you’re saving the world. On the other hand, tracks with a slow tempo might help you to relax.

#4: Provides Concentration

I think we can all agree that silence can be very grating and unbearable at times. We start to become distracted by just about everything in our surroundings. This is especially true when we feel unmotivated to complete our tasks or assignments. Slipping on a pair of headphones, however, solves this problem. The music you are listening to shuts out the world around you and focusing becomes much easier. Now Math homework feels like Mission Impossible. (Not because the Math is impossible, mind you, but rather because of the intensity of the movies)

Conclusion

Listening to music is part of being human. Our ancestors understood the value and significance of music as a form of communication, a form of enjoyment and a form of entertainment.
