The Study of Music and Health

Does music help you get through the day? How about when you are at work? Let us discuss some of the things music is good for when it comes to health.

I’ve always been a strong proponent of music while working. It allows me to keep focus and keep background noise to where I want it to be. I definitely leave certain types of music out of the equation when trying to really focus on my work. I don’t go as far as classical music but I try to limit the number of vocals in the music while working. This makes a huge difference for the day not only in time but it keeps me active while working.

Is listening to music good for your health? This is been a question asked of many different people. For the most part, we always think yes. Studies have shown that music can really make your mood feel better and pull you out of a depressing state if that is the case. The way the music works with the brain will affect the way the mood is generated. If you are emotionally attached to the music you will discover how easy it is to feel good when the music is upbeat and feel kind of somber when the music is down

How will music affect stress?

Stress is a big part of everyone’s life these days. There are only so many outlets you can do to really move through the stress during the day. A lot of people take different measures but if you institute a nice musical infrastructure you will find that the stress levels will reduce dramatically. This may not be the case all the time because there is a mix of other things that might go into play. If you are having trouble sleeping sometimes soft music will help you pass out.

It’s best to select music so you know the genre. This will avoid just random listening of bad songs that you might not care about. Listening to music that is boring to you or is distracting will actually work against you in terms of musical health.

We recommend certain styles of music that are good for certain reasons. If you are planning to do a workout you obviously want a more upbeat tempo. If you’re focused on studying or working, a mild vocal with light rhythms is your best bet.

We also like to think that music that has a good flow from beginning to end can help if you’re in a certain groove. Sometimes when you get really into a song and it’s producing good tempo in your brain it will allow you to work that much better.

Everyone is different when it comes to music, especially when it comes to working or studying. You have to find what works for you and decide if it’s even a way of reducing stress and getting more out of it. Be more productive on a daily basis. The ideal goal is to do it without increasing stress. If you can find music that helps you go through the day relaxes while upbeat, that will be your best bet.

Think of this music as musical therapy and try to find better results in life. If it doesn’t seem like it’s helping you at this time, give yourself a little bit more time and try again. Don’t let the first time make you give up so quickly. Once you try again you’ll see how much more you get done or more relaxed you are after the day is over.
