“Music is the mediator between spiritual and sensual life.” -Ludwig Van Beethoven
There is something about music that can change your mood, your attitude, and your perspective on life. Neuroscience links the release of dopamine, the “feel good” neurochemical in our brains with listening to music.
The research found that when we anticipate and then experience a pleasurable response while listening to music, our brain reacts by releasing dopamine.
Next time that life’s got you down, you are faced with a challenging problem, or you just need a boost, close your door, crank up your tunes, and belt out your favorite song. That should be enough to get you smiling again in no time.
