    Default Transformation of sentence

    I listen to music whenever I want to relax.

    Is either sentence correct if I transform the above sentence as follows?

    1. Listening to music makes me relaxed.

    2. Listening to music relaxes me.

    Thanks.

    In #1, I would say "makes me feel relaxed". #2 is fine.
