Music Magic

Thoughts of the week

“Music magic”

cartoon-kids-music

Everyone loves some kind of music!

Have different preferences for different times of the day? Prefer to listen to particular types when doing certain things? Fussy about what tunes other people play at a party? It’s all natural!

As well as get you up for, get you through and enhance a tough physical exercise session, music actually has a lot more benefits than you may think:

  • Cognition – Improving and maintaining mental abilities, sometimes helping recall things people had previously forgotten.
  • Comfort – Emotionally and sensoraliy supports people suffering with physical and mental illnesses.
  • Pain – Has been proven to reduce pain experience pre and post surgical procedures
  • Memory – Rhythm and melody can assist with a more verbal memory, less confusion and better focused attention.
  • Anxiety – Levels can be dramatically reduced after listening to specific types.
  • Stress – Slow tempo, low pitch and no lyrics can relax people before a potential stressful event occurring.
  • Mood – Emotions can be regulated after pressing play.
  • Autism – Can regulate social responses, communication and attention skills, primarily in young children.
