START YOUR WEEK WITH THE COLOR OF MUSIC
March 12th, 2018 // by
I have noticed that when I start my morning with upbeat and happy music, my outlook for the day and my mood improve----Just by listening to a song. This observation made me curious about whether or not music had a scientific backing on mood boosting. In my search I came across this article that I found interesting and wanted to share with you. It's fairly long, so I took the liberty of cutting out the things that stood out most to me to share with you as well.
Music can affect the brain in four ways.
Listening to a song you enjoy can actually affect you on a biological level!
Familiar music can reconnect people with deep, meaningful memories from their past.
Learning and Neuroplasticity.
"In a groundbreaking study by the University of Newcastle in Australia, popular music was used to assist patients with severe brain injuries in recalling personal memories." Just by listening to music, the patient's brains were able to reconnect to memories they previously could not access. Crazy!
By engaging our brain and our attention in the right ways, music is able to activate, sustain, and improve our attention.
They also mentioned playing an instrument engages both sides of your brain! Our technical skills are utilized to play the instrument and affect the left side of the brain, while the new creative ideas or improvisation flowing through us affect the right side.
Hope you enjoy this article.
Just a little bit of incite into me, my favorite song is: Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah) by Andy Grammer.
Have a great week!
