If you live in Lagos, having encounters with stress is something you are likely never to miss or be far-fetched from. This is why you must find ways to relieve yourself of that hassle as much as possible. Music is one way you can do that. Research shows that listening to some cool and slow sound has a tremendous effect on the mind and body, helping us let go of stress and anxiety as often as possible.
Also, slow music has physiological effects such as slowing the pulse and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the levels of stress hormones.
2. Improved Mood
There are times when work really gets very choking and our minds get affected so we become all cranky and worked up or moody. Having your ears plugged with earphones and jamming to your latest songs and sounds has a way of helping you change that frown to a smile without you even knowing.
This is because when we listen to an artiste we love or a song we like, a chemical called dopamine is released to our brains, helping us feel happy or fulfilled.
3. Increased Focus
There are times when we really have a lot to do and do not want a break in focus. Also, it may be at that time that a colleague decides to be so loud and vocal. Listening to music can help us block out the external noise and keep us focused on work at that moment.
It is said that listening to a calm song can help keep the nerves down and in effect, improve your focus. This can also transit beyond the work environment into life in general.
4. Increased Productivity
A research in November 2016 showed that 79% of people would be more productive at work if they listened to music. This is a very great therapy for having your tasks completed in good time.
These are some awesome ways you can improve your health through music even at the workplace. Therefore, next time you feel stressed pick up your earphones and jam away.
