Have you ever wondered why ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams makes you want to get up and dance? That’s because music can affect your mood and your health.
Certain types of music make us feel good which is beneficial to health and can get the creative juices flowing. While some may find listening to music while working distracting, it can improve productivity in the workplace.
Dancing is good for your physical health and what better to get you up and moving than your favorite upbeat song? It can get your heart pumping and your blood flowing which is great for your overall health. Plus, exercising while listening to music can help you achieve your workout goals.
Music is also broadly used for therapy and can even be linked to coping better with physical pain and can be an effective treatment for mood disorders related to neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, dementia, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.
On the other hand, sad and emotional music can bring you comfort during difficult times.
