Studies have shown that music with a stronger and faster beat can enliven brainwaves to resonate in sync with the beat of the music. Because of the faster, and more prominent beat, this allows the listeners thinking to become more alert and perceptive. Where a slower tempo advocates a calm, almost meditative state of mind. Research has found that the change in brainwave activity levels from the music being listened to can cause your brain to shift speeds more easily, causing you to think more effectively, and in the end making you have a sharper memory even after the music is done. Not only can music mentally help you, but with music therapy it can help you if you have high blood pressure, or any heart problem for that matter. Listening yo calmer music can help reduce a fast paced heart rate. It can calm it down, and greatly promote not only relaxation but health. Music can also be used to present a greater positive mentality, helping to keep negative state of minds, and energy at a lower state than before. This can help prevent the stress response your body naturally has on ones self from wreaking the havoc on the body, and can help your creativity levels, and also your optimism levels.
In conclusion, knowing music is an effective stress reliever and relaxer you can do music therapy on your own . No need to go to a professional, although... it may be more effective. All you have to do is sit down in a quiet area where there is no one but you. Put your head phones in, close your eyes, and let the melodic paradise sweep you away
