Go backMusic influences health: 5 Tips to improve yours
Sing goodbye to stress and depression!
Music attends us our whole life, from our lullabies, kindergarten group singing, the pop song we fell in love with in adolescence and, later, maybe, a classical or jazz channel.
Some people play their own instruments, others love to go dancing or motivate themselves through headphones for their weekly jog. Music is everywhere!
We have 5 musical tips for you, guaranteed to help you feel healthier, happier and more relaxed.
Tip 1: Sing regularly.
Never mind if you do this in the shower, while driving the car or in a choir. Singing regularly improves your cardiovascular system fitness and boosts your immune system.
Tip 2: Play an instrument.
If you already play an instrument, great! If not… it’s never too late to start! This is something that everybody can learn — trust the scientists! Delve into the world of you own music on a regular basis. Practicing an instrument is like yoga for your thoughts. You will be immersed in something lovely, and will automatically forget your everyday troubles for a while.
Tip 3: Listen actively.
You don’t have to sing or play – just listen mindfully. When you’re actively aware, listening to your favorite song also brings relaxation and relieves stress perfectly.
Tip 4: Sing to prevent a bad mood during darker, colder winter days.
The brain releases signals while you listen to pleasant music, which make you feel happy. This can counteract the low feelings that gloomy weather might create. So don’t be shy – go ahead and hum along with the radio. (And grab a colorful umbrella while you're at it!)
Tip 5: Get your headset ready right now to prevent or reverse any negativity (or bacteria!), and enjoy our top 3 songs:
