Music has the power to inspire and entertain but it also has powerful psychological effects that can improve your health and well-being. Instead of thinking of music as pure entertainment, consider some of the major mental benefits of incorporating music into your everyday life. Incorporating music into your everyday life can help to:
- elevate your mood and motivation
- aid relaxation and reduce stress
- improve your cognitive performance
Music can also stop you from feeling lonely or isolated. Whether it is sharing playlists with your friends, or meeting new, like-minded people at your favourite band’s next gig, music connects people.
