Wow! Its been awhile since I have made a blog post! Sorry about that. These are crazy times we live in right?! With so many things going on and being stuck at home, I am finding that I am listening to music much more than I normally did in my average day. I also know that I am being drawn to certain music depending on how im feeling. The music I choose, usually matches that mood. I was curious as to why and I found this study.
They explore why we feel things while listening to music, even if it is a new piece of music. They found its the contrast that pulls us in and stimulates our brain. At the end of the article it says...
“From a therapy perspective, music is a really good tool to induce emotion and engage a better mood,” one of the researchers, Assal Habibi, tells Neuroscience News.
“Using this research, we can design musical stimuli for therapy in depression and other mood disorders. It also helps us understand how emotions are processed in the brain.”
As we find ourselves in this strange experience, remember to use music to keep your spirits high. Find music that uplifts and makes you feel good. Let music lead you to your happy places when we are living in these uncertain times.
