Believe It or Not: Listening May Make You Healthier

By Tom Herrin

For those who are tired of hearing that they need to change their diet or exercise more, a little easier way to have a positive impact on their health may be to simply listen.  It would be wrong to say that diet and exercise are not important because they really are. There are some things, however, that can be done to improve health that would be considered very passive.  Listening to soft music is something that can be pleasant while helping to enhance health. One kind that may be the most effective is jazz.

It May Help with Focus and Energy

A lot of people have used music for a long time without actually realizing it.  Certain beats can have the impact of enabling people to be more productive.  It often helps them to bring out more creative abilities. Every day many people use music to establish a rhythm in their exercise routines.  It can raise the heart rate and the energy level.

It May Help Those Recovering from Strokes

Modern healthcare facilities have begun experimenting with all kinds of things to help those who have been having health problems.  For those who have had strokes, music therapy has been shown to be quite effective. People who listened to music had a 60 percent improvement in verbal memory as compared to 29 percent for those who did not listen.  Focused attention improved 17 percent for listeners as opposed to no improvement for those who did not. These were measured in just three months after a stroke.

It May Help Relieve Stress

Listening to soft music to relax and get rid of some stress may seem like a natural thing to many people.  Others often become so preoccupied with life and the things that make it hectic that they overlook the simpler things such as listening to music.  Certain beats can slow things down effectively, much the opposite of those that energize. In studies in which people listened for 45 minutes before bedtime, 26 percent were sleeping better after one week.  After three weeks, 35 percent were sleeping better. I enjoy listening to soft music, especially jazz, when I feel that I need to relax more. It works for me. If you have trouble sleeping, give it a try. It may work well for you as well.
