Cool Benefits of Music

- Music Can Help You Focus
There are multiple studies that have shown the positive effects of music on your concentration. Not only does music keep your mind sharp while performing a task, but it can also make a tedious task seem less boring.
- Music Can Lower Blood Pressure
An Italian/UK study found that listening to classical music, paired with controlled breathing for only 30 minutes a day showed reduced blood pressure of the test subjects. Try incorporating some music into your daily life to help maintain a good blood pressure.
- Music Makes You Happy
I’m sure everyone can relate to feeling happy when a good song comes on the radio. This is because when you hear a song you like, your brain releases dopamine which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain. Next time you feel stressed, try tuning into WPRK 91.5 to get some dopamine releases!
- Music Can Relieve Pain
Researchers have found that your brain processes pain and music in the same part of the brain. If you listen to music when you are feeling pain, your brain will divert its attention to the music, relieving some of the pain. This is especially helpful if you actively listen to the song and any changes you notice!
These are just some of the awesome benefits that come with listening to music. Make sure to tune into WPRK 91.5, or listen to our shows live on our site!
