Studies have proved music to be beneficial for several health issues.

Music cheers you up, gives you company on boring car rides, keeps you inspired, makes you dance, allows you to silence the chaos of your daily life and makes you happy.

Here are a few health problems which music can take care of.

  1. Reduces Blood Pressure

Music can cause changes in your blood pressure depending on its tempo. Listening to slow-paced music reduces blood pressure and lowers heart rate.

Moreover, research published in the Deutsches Arzteblatt International journal reported that listening to music by Mozart and Strauss for 25 minutes reduced the patient’s blood pressure and levels of stress.

Maybe, it’s time for doctors to add a daily classical music dose in their prescription.

  • Helps With Sleep Disorders

Many people around the world face sleeping problems and take pills for a better sleep. A new study showed that music can improve the quality of sleep in adults with insomnia and other sleeping disorders by relaxing their nervous system and bodies.

The advantage of using music to fight insomnia is that it is free, easy to use and has no side effects.

  • Heals A Broken Heart

Having a broken heart is one of the most difficult phases of life. In these situations, many broken-hearted turn to music for comfort or a distraction from their painful reality.

A 2013 study shows that people feel better when listening to music which matches their moods. So, if you’re feeling blue and don’t want to talk to anyone, listen to slow music with soft tunes which enables you to connect with yourself.

Similarly, when you’re feeling angry and want to scream out loud, ask your friend to take you to the club with powered speakers and request the DJ to play noisy and angry rock and scream out all of your rage and frustration. 😀

  • Promotes Brain Development in Premature Babies

Apparently, even the smallest humans benefit from good music. Swiss researchers showed that music aids in the brain development of premature babies.

The brains of premature babies are developed outside of their mother’s womb and the intensive care environment can be very noisy and distressing for the newborns.

During this critical development stage, many hospitals use music to help promote brain development, stabilise their heart rate and breathing while also increasing their weight by improving their appetite and sleep.

  • Promotes Reading Habits

Our brains are the most active when we listen to music because it’s motivating and engaging. Hence, it’s believable when studies state that music can be used to encourage reading habits in children and even improve their reading skills.

Songs help children in identifying different sounds in different words, improve their fluency, vocabulary, and understanding.

  • Energizes Your Lazy Days

If you’re feeling lazy or unmotivated but have a lot of work and errands to finish just play some energetic music with great lyrics great to pump you for the day. You can check out the lists of best songs at Loud Beats to get some inspiration.

  • Treats Drug Addiction

Music therapy is often used in treating addiction and helping patients stay sober. Meditating with music, drumming, writing songs or making your own playlists are few of the activities which help recovering addicts in staying sober.
