MUSIC MAKES YOU HAPPIER, SMARTER, AND HEALTHIER TOO

MUSIC MAKES YOU HAPPIER, SMARTER, AND HEALTHIER TOO

Playing Ukulele in the kitchenMusic touches us all deeply, in ways in which range from the apparent to the inexplicable. This much is clear to us all. But did you recognize that music also can improve your span, enhance your memory and help heal the material body, mind, and spirit in ways in which medicine cannot?

I recently came upon a desirable online video that explains the science behind all this. It describes how music activates certain regions in your brain — nerve pathways that are involved within the movement, planning, attention, and memory. Music also boosts your system and may create positive emotional experiences — it even helps relieve pain. Relaxing music can lower high pressure and may help people littered with migraines and chronic headaches; paying attention to the genre before bedtime can even reduce sleeping problems.

That’s lots of power with just some notes!

Music also plays a crucial role for those with special needs. for instance, it helps individuals with severe brain injuries recall personal memories, and improves math skills in children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Intrigued, I reached intent on my brother Michael for added insight. (Michael may be a trained public servant, psychotherapist, and CEO at West Bergen Mental Healthcare in Ridgewood, New Jersey.) “Music therapy has a very important place within the treatment of assorted psychological state challenges,” he told me. It allows them to express themselves in non-verbal ways in which are important and might be quite effective.”

And if you’re a musician or someone who enjoys playing an instrument, your brain not only fires symmetrically after you hear music, the nerve tract area (the animal tissue between the left and right hemispheres) increases in size, with enhanced communications between your logical and emotional self. Studies also show that musicians have distinctly recognizable brains that are enlarged within the cortical area, which is that the region of the brain liable for hearing.
