Music has been known to improve your mood and regulate your emotions; it suggests that it might even make you healthier. Music can be a good source of pleasure and content and has many other psychological benefits.
Music can relax the mind, energise the body and can also manage pain.
It has long been suggested that music can help reduce and manage stress. Consider the trend that is centred on meditative music created to soothe the mind and inducing relaxation. Fortunately, this is one trend supported by research.
A surprising psychological benefit to listening to music is that it can also be used as a helpful weightless tool. A study shows that people who ate at low-lit restaurants where soft music was played consumed 18% less food than those who ate in other restaurants.
Listening to music can be an effective way to cope with stress too. Try zoning out listening to your favourite tunes after a bad day.
