BENEFITS OF MUSIC TO OUR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH

Have you ever wondered what other effect music can have on you apart from uplifting your spirits? At some point,during the weekend,you will probably relax by listening to your favourite music or hit the dance floor. There is no doubt that music can instantly put you in a good mood. Discoveries have been found about music by scientists that music can do more for you than just lift your spirits.

  Researchers have found out that music can improve function of the body's immune system and help reduce stress.
  Music can meaningfully reduce the percieved intensity of pain,especially
in geriatric care,intensive care,or palliative care (an area of health care that focuses on preventing and relieving the suffering of patients).

  Music improves sleep quality. Classical music can effectively treat insomnia in college students. It is a cheap alternative to sleep-inducing meds.

  Music enhances blood vessel functions. Scientists found out that the emotion patients experience while listening to music have a healthy effect on blood vessel function.

  Music relieves symptoms of depression. Classical music and meditative sounds seem to be particularly uplifting, while heavy metal and techno can actually make depressive symptoms worse.

  Music reduces anxiety as much as a massage and also relaxes patients before surgery. Researchers found out that listening to music helped put cardiovascular surgery patients at ease as they waited for their operation.

 Music helps cancer patients manage stress and ease recovery in stroke patients.

Music can cure chronic back pain by working on the autonomous nervous system-the part of the nervous system responsible for controlling our blood pressure,heartbeat and brain-function and also the limbic system-the part of the brain that controls feelings and emotions. When slow rythms are played,our blood pressure and heartbeat slow down which helps us breathe more slowly,thus reducing muscle tension our neck, shoulders,back and stomach.

 Music is no doubt food to the body and soul.
