Happy Friday Hudson Valley! Let’s talk about the health benefits of music. It seems that listening to music has quite a few health benefits and you might find some of them very surprising indeed.
Have you ever heard that “Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast”? Well research says that it actually does soothe and calm our minds (I can only assume that speed metal does not apply here). A calm, relaxed mental state is something we all strive for isn’t it? Here are a few other things that music can do for your health:
- Music helps stroke patients to heal. In Finland researches found that stroke patients who listened to music for 2 hours a day increased their verbal memory and improved their attention span.
- Music can relieve or reduce depression symptoms. Pop a musical meditation CD or a classical CD in and feel the weight of your depression drain away. Techno and heavy metal might not help out here.
- Music can increase blood flow. Music that makes us happy can make our bodies happy too. Read about the research here.
- Music helps you become a better athlete. Listening to upbeat music while working out has tons of health benefits! It promotes endurance, motivation, and eases post workout recovery too.
Music motivates us, moves us, and changes us. We listen to it at work, in our cars, and in our homes. Sometimes just the first three notes of a song can transport us back to a happier day and who doesn’t need that in their lives?
