Music plays a bigger role in most of our lives than we realize. We listen to it while we work, we listen to it while we clean, even while we exercise , or take a nap.
Why do we do this? Mostly because music is enjoyable. It takes our minds off of the stress in our lives, it reminds of times that we’ve had and its overall just enjoyable.
What most people don’t know is that listening to music while you go through your daily activities actually makes quite an impact. Music does the body good.
We are going to show you a few ways that your habit of listening to music is actually improving your health.
Music and You
There are a number of ways that listening to music can positively impact your body, your state of mind and your health. We are going to go over a few of the ways that we found to be most applicable to everyday life.
Everyone has their own musical preference. Studies have shown that when we plug in our headphones after a stressful conversation, or a hard day, the “feel good vibes” that music gives us actually triggers a dopamine release.
Without knowing these facts, we have always known that turning on music can help us unwind. Now we know exactly how.
Pick up the pace
Exercise is wonderful for losing weight and staying healthy. The only problem is, making it through your exercise. Do you listen to music while you workout? Listening to upbeat music has been proven to increase endurance by up to 15%. This means you can work out longer without focusing on how worn out you are feeling.
For those of you who are trying to lose weight, consider adding music to your workout to increase your stamina and get those results!
Have you been feeling a little strained from work or just your day to day life? Music is the perfect cure. In a study it was found that nearly a third of all people plug in music to give them a mood boost when they’re on their way to work. A fourth of those people reported that they felt destressed after listening to music on their way to work.
Many Doctors recognize the well-known benefits of music.
Next time you feel that stress or anxiety setting in, take a moment, plug in your headphones and turn on your favorite song. You’ll be amazed at how well this helps you to de-stress.
