THE THINGS YOU DIDNT KNOW ABOUT MUSIC Studies have shown that listening to music has many health benefits, especially for the elderly. In fact, not only does it contribute to lower stress levels and improved sleep, but it also reinforces the immune system. Keep reading to find out more.
STRESS Researchers at McGill University’s Psychology Department found that music can be more effective than prescription drugs for reducing anxiety in adults before surgery. The study also demonstrated that listening to music helps reduce cortisol levels (a stress hormone) in the body.
SLEEP Seniors who listen to soft music for 45 minutes before bed fall asleep faster, sleep for longer, stir less during the night and benefit from all-around more energizing sleep.
THE POWER OF MUSIC If you lack the will to work out, pop in your earbuds and let music come to the rescue. It’s been proven that music has a stimulating effect during physical activity. This is easily observed in settings such as aerobics and spin classes, where music and exercise are inexorably linked, with increases in tempo naturally encouraging participants to push themselves harder. Nevertheless, it seems that the benefits of listening to music are pretty much the same, regardless of the tune’s tempo and pace. Listening to songs that are of particular significance to you may further enhance music’s motivational power, according to some researchers. Studies show that music helps improve athletic performance. For one, focusing on whatever’s playing in our ears makes fatigue less apparent. It also works wonders for endurance, energy and strength. Walking or running in rhythm, for example, helps keep energy levels high.
Why? Music affects our parasympathetic nervous system, which slows our heart rate and breathing — much like when you get ready for bed. Hence, by relaxing the body, music can actually prepare it for sleep.
