Play a Little Song for Your Health

By Tom Herrin

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that most people would rather not put out much extra effort if they don’t have to.  Who wants to knock themselves out if it is not necessary? Then again, many feel that better health only comes to those who sweat -- or starve.  While diet and exercise are critical to good health, there are some things that require little effort yet may produce some real results. One of these things is listening to soft music, or even better, listening to jazz.  It has a long track record of success in several areas of health.

It May Be Good for the Mind

Several studies have shown that certain beats can have real effects on the mind.  Many people have experienced exercising with music. It seems to energize them and help them to focus on the task.  Their levels of fatigue may be much less with the right beat. Other beats appear to stimulate creativity, making people perform better at work or school.  

It May Lower Blood Pressure

Listening to music may be able to help the blood vessels expand.  One study on the effects of listening to music and laughter showed great results after three months of participation.  The results were that there was a considerable improvement in the blood pressure in both the group that listened to music and the one that was involved in laughter as opposed to those who did not participate and had no change.  Those changes were comparable to those who reduced their salt, took medication, or lost weight. These changes were believed to decrease the chances of dying of a heart disease or stroke by as much as 15 percent.

It May Reduce Stress

Most people probably associate listening to jazz with lower stress.  While most of this is based on simple stereotypes, there is actually some substance to it.  Listening to soft music for a while before bedtime has been proven to enable people to sleep better and longer.  It was seen to help people to have fewer problems with alertness during the day. I have tried this myself with considerable success.  Not only can it lower stress, but it can also help deal with depression. If you want to try something simple, and painless, try listening to a little jazz.
