Music for All - How it has Influenced the People Worldwide?

All over the world, music is created in different languages. But, people do fall in love with the rhythm or the tone of the song. And, it reunites the world as one unit. Can you recall the Spanish language ‘Despacito’ song by Luis Fonsi, which not only make us move but won many international recognitions? 


Therefore, for listening to a song or falling in love with it, language is not a barrier. Nowadays, the fast-growing Internet connects the dots across the globe and increases the reaching ability of someone's work. That not only breaks the language barrier but also connects the world as a unit. 


Across the globe, there are numerous writers, singers, and music composers who work continuously to serve the people with the utmost pleasure of melody. How can we forget the golden voice of Celine Dion in ‘Every night in my dreams’ that enthralled us deeply, and the World’s most favourite and popular band BTS makes to shake our body on ‘Dynamite’ every time when we play it.


Benefits of Listening to Music

Music has the power to heal not only our mind and body but our soul too. ‘Music relaxes us’ is not just for saying, but medical science proves it. Medical science believes that good music helps us to improve our psychological disorders. Some of the health benefits of music are given below:

  • Music makes our heart healthy as it reduces heart rate.

  • Music controls stress by decreasing the stress hormone (cortisol) flow in our body. 

  • Music gives us relief from depression and anxiety. Good music increases the production of dopamine hormone which is responsible for the good mood of our body.

  • Music reduces pain as many injuries or operations will take up successfully while playing the patient's favourite music track.

  • Music improves eating habits. Many research shows that playing soft music while eating reduces the chewing speed, and that helps to consume less food. 

  • Music improves physical health.  Have you ever observed playing your favourite track while walking or gymming helps to do some more activity and, that leads to improving your physical health?

So, whenever you feel low, or depressed, play your favourite track. It does not only help you to do some physical activity but balances the good-bad hormone production in your body.
