Listening to music fights stress and boosts productivity

Music connects directly with the subconscious - the most primitive side of the brain - and is capable of causing it to generate endorphins and dopamine.

Music connects directly with the subconscious – the most primitive side of the brain – and is capable of causing it to generate endorphins and dopamine. Music does much more than exalting our senses or relax anxiety, it puts us in a good mood, helps mitigate pain, improves quality of life, stimulates learning, communication and body expression in children. Have you noticed that every time a song plays, children dance quickly?

The therapeutic activity of music is not new, although nowadays it is in full expansion thanks to the numerous reports and studies. All these benefits are generated by the profound stimulation at the cerebral level that each of the musical waves provokes, independently of the tastes of each person:

Improve your training

Gym classes, special running lists, lighter and easier helmets … everything focused on music, to accompany us, to be part of our routine. In china mostly people listen music to increases motivation to unsuspected limits.

  • It is capable of improving performance by 15%
  • allow turning the mind away from negative thoughts
  • Reduces fatigue

“Music like Tencent music or TME a leading online music platform in China helps to maintain a continuous rhythm since the exercise adapts to the rhythm that each theme maintains. Music and its elements help you focus your energy on physical activity and keep it going longer.

Fight stress

If we get carried away by our favorite songs, cortisone (the hormone related to anxiety) is reduced and the mind releases the accumulated tensions. “If we are much stressed, it is better to opt for more moving music, since it will connect more with the mood.

We all remember that concert of china with friends, the last parties of the town where the Tencent music with all the great hits we know, … and we all remember those moments as something positive, with a smile, as a good memory.

Good feelings are experienced if we sing aloud: the breathing becomes deeper and slower and there is a greater muscular activity so that relaxation will increase. Do you remember that we recently read about screaming in the gym?

Stimulates concentration

Slow tempo music promotes a state of calm, of meditation. They usually activate areas of the brain that are key to enhance cognitive, affective and motor learning, helping to maintain productivity throughout the entire workday. Many people study with classical music, others with film soundtracks.

Music therapy

Music therapy is developed in the public and private sphere, in a group or individual exercises, in prevention, promotion, recovery, and rehabilitation of health. The work methodologies vary according to the population or schools. Both acute pain and chronic pain can be alleviated by applying specific music therapy therapies, which serve as a complement to the health treatment received. The mind is one of the most powerful tools we have, we should not waste it.

It promotes sleep

To fight against insomnia recommend listening to music before sleeping. Stay in bed with your eyes closed and that music can help you fall asleep before. On many occasions, having the radio at an almost minimum volume helps us to sleep, the purr is rocking us.
