We all listen to music…some of us more than others. But, listening to music has been found to have some significant health benefits. Here are some positive health benefits to listening to some tunes:
Feeling stressed? Researchers have found that listening to music is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress. Studies have shown that listening to slower, relaxing music can lower heart rate, blood pressure and even relieve headaches. Neat, huh?
Puts You In A Better Mood
Do you ever find yourself in a bad mood? Turn up some of your favorite jams and you’ll be in a better mood in no time. Research has found that music can help people get in touch with their feelings, connect with others, become more self aware and be happier!
Improved Cognitive Function
Do you have a difficult time concentrating? If so, turn on some background music. One study found that having background music playing while people were taking tests helped test takers get more answer right and complete more questions in the time allocated for the test!
Have Better Work Outs
If you’re looking to have a better work out and produce better results, you better turn up the tunes. Scientists claim that music can increase your endurance and help keep you more focused on your work out. It also distracts you from any pain or discomfort you might feel while your hitting the gym!
Do you have a hard time falling asleep? If so, you might want to listen to music before you hit the hay. Research conducted in 2008 found that listening to light classical music is an effective way to reduce insomnia. So quit tossing and turning and turn on that classical music!
