Feel The Music

So many people listen to music but how many of those listening understand the benefits behind music? I would argue that off the top of our heads, not many could list the psychological/mental and physical benefits that come from music. 

 For example, did you know that music helps with anxiety and stress? If a person plays a slower tempo song, they can quiet their mind and even relax their muscles. This comes from the music’s effect of lowering cortisol (stress hormone) levels. Music also helps to improve sleep quality, even aiding those with insomnia. Not only can music help a person sleep, but music can also be versatile, working vice-versa by helping a person wake up with the added placebo effect of setting the tone for their day. 

The benefits don’t just end there. Make sure to not forget your headphones at home when going to the gym because the benefits can also be seen there. By playing fast paced music, a person can exert themselves more during a workout. With a certain tempo, one can also increase serotonin and endorphin levels in the body, providing a type of mood boost for a person, as can be read about in the article referenced below.

Some of the more common benefits of music includes boosting performance with cognitive tasks and helping with tasks involving memory, such as learning a language. There are even studies on how music therapy can help with cognitive impairments in older adults (ex- Alzheimer’s). The use of music in therapy (music therapy) can help with a variety of issues/situations such as: manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, boost memory, improve communication, and more.
