Music: the best recipe for being healthy

As well as awakening emotions, music also makes us healthy. Science has shown how our brains respond to musical stimuli and how this helps us to enhance our wellbeing.


Various pieces of research explain how classical music enables us to concentrate better, as well as how it helps us to alleviate anxiety and stress. It has also been proven that other styles, such as rock, charge our batteries and motivate us to do sport. Furthermore, carrying out group musical activities improves our social skills, given that it awakens in us a feeling of empathy and belonging. Although the most fortunate people are those who play an instrument, because this ability promotes better cerebral development, especially in children.

Such is its influence that, in some cases, music is prescribed to treat certain illnesses. For example, musical therapies are used to improve the situation of people with alzheimer's, parkinson's and autism. They are used to help to evoke memories, improve motor skills and boost learning capacity.

In any case, what’s certain is that life seems more straightforward if we give it a soundtrack.
