When was the last time you heard one of your favorite songs – one so good that it made you tap your toes, sway your hips and maybe even sing along?
If it’s been a while, it’s time to plug back into your jam. Research has shown that music has a wide-ranging ability to affect our mood, whether it’s a catchy song with an upbeat tempo that has us dancing in the kitchen, or a soothing mix that helps us wind down before bed.
The benefits of music
People can have strong emotional connections to certain pieces of music. Children’s songs may trigger specific memories from your own childhood. A song from your teen years can bring you right back to a school dance. The same goes for movie soundtracks.
Research has shown that how we react to music involves the same pleasure center in our brain that governs how we feel about our favorite foods and how we react to people we love.
Listening to tunes you really like can increase the rate at which pleasure-inducing hormones are released in your brain, such as norepinephrine and melatonin. That can give your mood a lift almost instantly.
Why is music important?
But music can do more than just make you happy. Hearing certain songs can be just what we need to feel empowered, help us focus, chill out or get ready for sleep. Music can even by a study aid: The act of singing something can help with memorization and recall.
Once you know what you’re aiming for, you can pick the music to help you get there. A new collection of Nutrilite™ products has you covered—on the music front and the supplement front.
