How does music treat depression?
- Music stops our brain from ageing: Musical training and listening to or playing music in old age can help keep the brain healthy and fit especially as it ages. Listening to music exercises our brain which helps to reduce memory loss. The rhythm and sounds of music stay within the core of the brain for a long time which helps it treat people facing partial brain damage
- Music makes us happier: Depression is linked with sorrow in one way or the other. As stated before, music has the power to do so much. It can make you feel happy, excited or even pumped up. Listening to music that you love causes your brain to release dopamine (The feel good chemical). Listening to music provides us with the same burst of happiness that we would get from eating a piece of cake or certain drugs but it doesn’t have any side-effects. Choosing the right songs is really important for obtaining positive results.
- Improves sleep quality: Some of the most common things to interfere with sleep are depression and anxiety. Since music has the ability to cure both in a positive way, listening to music at various times promotes better sleep patterns for people and even creates more restful sleeps. Music also has the ability to cure Insomnia to some extent.
- Music is a great hobby: Unlike many other hobbies listening to music can be done at anywhere at any time. Even while resting or running. Music helps to utilize your time in the best way possible. Sitting Idle for too long causes anxiety which leads to depression.
