The entire universe is glad that Albert Einstein became what he was, a Physician but know what would have made him glad? Being a musician, he was one of the greatest minds the entire world has ever witnessed and that great mind wished to become a musician if not a Physician. We can imagine till what extent music can be a great company that he wanted to create it.
According to the researches, music improves the mental well-being and boosts our physical health in surprising and unknown ways. The company of a good music is as healthy as the company of a best friend. If we take a music lesson or two, that musical training can help raise our IQs and even keep us sharp in old age.
Here are various scientifically- proven benefits of being connected to music:-
- Instant Release of ‘Feel- Good’ Hormone:-
Research say that when we listen to good or our favorite music, our brain releases dopamine, a “feel good” hormone which enhances the feel good factor in ourselves and as a result we feel happy and delighted.
Music can help us to cut out the sadness or anger from the moment as sadness and anger suck out the energy from us. These two requires energy to function which they take from our body whereas happiness gives us the energy to function. So, next time you feel sad just try to be energetic and don’t let negativity suck out anything.
- Music reduces stress and improves health:-
Stress causes 60% of our illness and disease and studies shows that if people actively participate or engage themselves in the creation of music, playing of an instrument or singing, their immune system will be boosted even more than by just listening to music passively.
Though, just listening to music you enjoy (it has got nothing to do with any particular genre of music) decreases level of the stress hormone, cortisol in our body.
- Keeps you from being an Insomniac:-
We are living with the affects of living in a twenty first century where every second person is almost an insomniac due to our routine and habits. A proper sleep is undoubtedly an important segment to live healthy life and being insomniac won’t help out but, music can.
It has been proven that listening to relaxing music like classical or soft beats songs on or off bed initiates instant and soothing sleep. Sleeping helps the body heal, so does the music. Happy napping!
- Music reduces Depression:-
Depression has its roots all over the world as approximately 350 million people suffer from this which is also the cause of initial or serious insomnia. It has been demonstrated that a right kind of music like meditative or classical can lift up people with depressive symptoms. But a wrong type like heavy metal or techno music can bring down even more.
