Let’s face it, the world is going through a very weird time right now. A time filled with uncertainty, anxiety and unknowns. So now more than ever, positivity is important in getting us through it, supporting yourself as an individual and those around you.
Easier said than done we know, but there is a very powerful tool that can help to motivate, increase optimism and improve mental well-being, overall reducing those anxious feelings and regulating emotions. That tool is MUSIC!
Music is a very powerful neurological tool that helps us change our mindset and mood, giving us new perspective. When you hear music, your brain releases a chemical called dopamine that has positive effect on mood. Particular songs can spark happy memories and nostalgic moments. Upbeat tracks can motivate you when working from home or to get you up off the sofa to do some exercise, assisting in improving performance.
Maybe most importantly, music can provide comfort. Whether it’s low tempo, soothing tracks to help you relax or upbeat pop music to put a smile on your face, it all helps in easing your mind and is a companion if you’re feeling lonely.
