The Power of Music

Hi Passion Fit Crew! I hope you all are doing well. For my latest blog post, I wanted to discuss the power of music and how it can serve a really great purpose in our lives, especially as it relates to our health and wellness. Music can positively impact us in the following ways:

 

  • It can energize us

 

  • It can lift our mood

 

  • It can make us happy and excited

 

  • It can touch our heart, soul and spirit

 

  • It can help us grieve and ease our sadness

 

  • It can help ease our pain

 

  • It can help release our frustration or anger

 

  • It can reduce our stress or anxiety

 

  • It can reduce our blood pressure

 

  • It can inspire us

 

  • It can empower and motivate us

 

  • It can improve our performance in various activities and pursuits

 

  • It can give us hope

 

  • It can make us move our bodies to dance or exercise

 

  • It can make us sing

 

  • It can create loving feelings and emotions within us

 

  • It can positively impact our memory

 

  • It can improve our brain functionality

 

  • It can help us fall asleep

 

  • And much, much more!

 

There are so many facets of music such as the lyrics, the melody and the beat that can really touch us in different ways. According to an article in Huffington Post, by Jill Suttie,  neuroscientists have found that listening to music can increase positive emotions via reward centers within our brains and more and more research is being done to determine how music can be used in healthcare to help patients before and after surgeries, if they’re suffering from various diseases, etc.

No matter what genres of music we prefer, it really is wonderful to know music is accessible to us in many different forms – via instruments, concerts, digital videos, TV, radio, online music services, electronic devices, or even through our own voices! So try to leverage music whenever you can to enhance your health and wellness.

That’s it for today, Passion Fit Crew. I’ll be back next month with my next blog post. Have a great night and enjoy some music! And with that, I’ll leave you with this beautiful quote:

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
