Relation between Music and Stress
Diseases like obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and asthma are increasing at an alarming rate and are becoming a part of people lives. The most shocking part related to these diseases are that most of them are caused due to stress which is a positive as well as negative thing. The positive thing is that they can be countered by avoiding stress but on the other side due to increasing work load & so much pressure, it is easy to get stress and these diseases too.
What if I told you that there is a free and easy method to relieve stress and avoid these diseases in the future. Researchers have found that music connects with the automatic nervous system— brain function, blood pressure, heartbeat and the limbic system, where your feelings and emotions live. Thus listening to music can help in reducing adrenaline and cortisol levels in the body and hence help you cope up with stress faster.
Besides music it has been found that listening to ambient sounds like rainfall, river flow, ocean waves, leaves rustling, etc. can also promote relaxation.
So the next time you have a deadline near, have a bad mood, feel low in life or getting negative vibes from the environment feel free to plug in your earphones and just disconnect from the world.
