Everyone loves listening to music. They just vary in the kinds of music that they listen to. Some people love to listen to whatever is popular on the radio and do not really have a strong preference when it comes to music genres. Others prefer classical music played in orchestra and concertos. Some love to listen to the discordant guitar riffs of heavy metal music. While others prefer a music genre in a certain period or era, like the new wave music in the 80’s.
Music has been around since time immemorial. Even primitive people create music using objects that they can find in nature like sticks and leaves and using their own body parts such as their lips for whistling or their feet for stomping.
Whether you feel sad, happy, tired, in love, or angry, you can find music for all of these. For example, there are a lot of songs written for people who are in love. There are also songs for people who have their hearts broken. You can also find music with no lyrics that suit your mood.
You have probably seen or heard of pregnant women listening to classical music because they believe that this will improve their baby’s IQ. Some parents also let their kids listen to classical music for the same reason. There is no actual proof that this really works but it will not hurt you if you try it with your baby or children. However, one study proves that playing a musical instrument enhances a child’s intelligence. This is why more and more parents enroll their kids in piano or violin lessons.
You can use an upbeat music while exercising to keep you motivated and energized. Happy music also gets rid of those negative thoughts in your head. Soft and soothing music is also used in psychiatric hospitals as a mental therapy for treating their patients. It also improves your immune system because it releases the right kind of hormones in your body that helps decrease your level of stress.
