Sometimes you might just want to relax and listen to your favourite music and do nothing else, and that is okay!
Here are some benefits of listening to music:
- By listening to your favourite music for 15 minutes, your body releases a chemical called dopamine, which makes you feel happy.
- Music can help improve sleep. Studies have shown that before you go to bed, listen to some relaxing or classical music and it can greatly improve your sleep.
- Music reduces depression, as it can be considered a natural antidepressant, due to the chemicals your body releases whilst listening, like dopamine.
- If you happen to drive, research has shown that if you listen to positive music whilst driving, it can influence your mood, which can make you a safer driver.
