Music is one of the few activities that involve the entire brain. It is intrinsic to all tastes and can have remarkable benefits not only for language learning, improved memory, and attention but also coordination and physical development.
Of course, music can be distracting if it is too strong or too discordant. But for most, the exposure to many types of music has beneficial effects:
1- An effective treatment for pain
Music can be helpful for those who suffer from physical pain; Studies have shown that people who listen to music that is soothing asked fewer drugs against pain after surgery and relaxation music can also help manage chronic pain.
2- Reduction of blood pressure
By playing relaxing music recordings every time, people with high blood pressure may develop to lower their blood pressure – and keep it there.
3- Medicine for the heart
Music has been proven good for the heart. Some experts even say that it can function as a medication for your heart. When you listen to your favorite music for a sufficient time, it produces hormones “happy” that make you happy.
4- Speeds post-stroke recovery
Music acts on the autonomic nervous system – the part of the neurotic system responsible for managing our blood pressure, heart rate and brain function – such as the limbic system – the part of the brain that regulates feelings and emotions.
5- Music boosts immunity
When you listen to your favorite music with lyrics, it creates a positive emotional experience, which causes your body to release certain hormones that enhance the self-defense mechanism of your body.
