Music is a very powerful medium. Not only can you hum along and move your body, it can also help you struggle through health challenges. Here are five reasons we should listen to music every day:
Reduce the pain
A study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology found that when fibromyalgia patients listen to music they like or even streetpianos for 10 minutes, their heart rate slows down to 120 beats per minute and they also claim their pain is reduced. Conversely, when listening to the noise, the pain increases. The mobility of the patients also increases with listening to music.
Help you focus more
Tomorrow, if you need to prepare a presentation for college or work, do it while listening to classical music. A 2007 study by Stanford University School of Medicine found that music from the late Baroq period can alter certain parts of the brain so that people who listen to it can focus more on work.
Improve sports performance
Listening to Beyonce’s song can be a time-bust when it comes to waiting for the coach to arrive. However, did you know that music can also help you complete a hard training session? A study of 20 active adult interval training shows that music makes sports sessions more enjoyable and enhances vitality. As a result, even a heavy sport feels lighter with the presence of favorite music.
The streets of traffic will make anyone stressed and irritable. If you’re stuck in traffic, try listening to mellow music. According to a study published by the journal Ergonomicstahun 2013, music with fast and fast rhythms can make people happy, but the music with a calm and slow rhythm can make people more calm and improve the ability to drive, something that is needed when driving in a crowded and full challenge.
