A lot of studies show that music has a vast impact on your behavior and mood. No matter what genre of music you are into, you may agree that music makes your life better.

Here are seven scientifically proven ways music can improve your life:

1. It can make you relax and reduce stress levels

A lot of people turn to relaxing music instinctively when they are stressed. However, research shows that music can actually help with stress. A research backs up that particularly slow classical music is really good to relieve stress. One study also proved that it is much better when it comes to dealing with anxiety than anti-anxiety medication.

It was discovered through blood pressure readings that listening to jazz or pop music has a similar rejuvenating effect as absolute silence.

2. It can pump you up for your workout

Do you feel that you perform better while listening to music when you work out? It is probably because you do. A research shows that your endurance can increase by 15% if you listen to music. This means you can last much longer if you listen to music while you work out. According to a Norwegian study, classical music is the best while spinning to improve endurance. The continuity of classical music improves focus, according to a theory, allowing you to persist for an extended amount of time.

However, a different study suggests that the music’s speed (bpm) matters more than the genre. It states that the optimal speed for an improved performance would be between 125 bpm to 140 bpm.

Additionally, studies show that music can help reduce pain. Preferred music can also significantly improve the tolerance and increase the perceived control over the pain. It also effectively decreases anxiety the most as compared to absolute silence and visual distraction.

3. It can improve both your mental and physical health

Research suggests that music releases the feel-good chemical called dopamine which is associated with the pleasure of eating or having sex. This can particularly be good if you are on a diet, indulge in music instead of eating food to satisfy your cravings.

Another finding proves that music has the ability to improve the immune system of the body and reduce the levels of stress.
