Admittedly, at some point we all experience anxiety or depression, we may just not recognize it. Regardless, there’s an easy way to help reduce anxiety naturally, and luckily it costs very little. Not only does this trick work for mood elevation, but it can power you through workouts and increase energy. Less stress and more energy equals a happier and healthier you!
Music is the Key
Several studies have shown that music can often have comparable, if not better, results than anti-anxiety drugs. When you listen to music, a part of your brain that produces dopamine is triggered. Dopamine is responsible for feelings of happiness and euphoria.
Music can also stimulate parts of the brain that govern emotion and excitement, which correlates to an increase in energy levels. This can be extremely useful during periods of increased energy demand, such as exercise. Listening to the right kind of music can actually motivate you to be active and work harder.
Picking the Right Music
Individuals respond in varying ways depending on the type of music playing. Although certain styles affect a majority of the population, on average, more than others, typically a person needs to find what works best for them. Obviously, upbeat music (such as pop or rock) has a greater likelihood of stimulating energy levels, as opposed to slower music. The quickest way to discover which works, is listen to a variety of styles before determining what suits you best. You’ll be able to feel what works for you when you hear it.
Music can be an invaluable tool for helping calm the mind and reduce stress. This, in conjunction with exercise, and even supplements for all natural joint pain relief, can be the key to helping you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
