Music is powerful and can help influence your overall health and state of mind. Listening to music generally makes me feel more optimistic and energizes my mind and body. I strive to recommend music that is uplifting, contains intellectual lyrics and requires talent to create. Hopefully you enjoy my selections and please feel free to suggest tunes of your own.Picasso

Research even suggests that music has a substantial effect on your body and overall psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as Music Therapy, which utilizes music in an effort to heal. Those who practice music therapy have discovered the benefit of using music to help aid cancer patients and children with ADD.

In addition, hospitals are beginning to use music and music therapy to help with pain management. It helps alleviate depression, promotes movement, calms patients and even eases muscle tension. This may not come as a surprise considering music affects the body and mind in a monopoly of ways. With this in mind, enjoy the tunes and maximize your personal health, regardless of what you are going through.

Research has even shown that music with a strong beat can help stimulate brainwaves. Faster beats have been linked to increased concentration and heightened thinking. On the other side of the equation, slower music correlates to a peaceful and meditative state of utter tranquility.

Research also reveals a change in brain wave activity while listening to music. This helps support evidence that music enables the brain to shift speeds more easily throughout the duration of a day, as needed. Music even cultivates lasting implications and benefits to your overall state of mind, even after you’ve stopped listening.
