Not all music is equally good for reducing stress.

Slow and calm music - like classical music - is much better for stress relief than fast, high tempo music.

Your body responds to the rhythm and beat of the music.

This is why fast, loud music amps you up and makes your heart race whereas gentle music decreases your heart rate.

The familiarity of the music also makes a huge difference in how your body reacts. Familiar music produces a sense of comfort and centeredness whereas new music can be unsettling and irritating.

If classical music is not your cup of tea, try listening to the sounds of nature. The sound of water, trees and birds chirping conjures up calming thoughts, like a mountain stream on a warm spring day.

Music has the potential to influence your psychology and physiology, which is extremely useful in stress management. It taps into your emotions and memories, and can either distract you from them or help you to explore them more deeply, depending on your needs. Either way, use music to calm your mind and soothe your soul when feeling stressed and overwhelmed.Image attachmentImage attachment

Music releases “feel good” chemicals and hormones into your body making you feel better almost instantly.

The two most important mood enhancing chemicals that are released when you listen to calming music are:

ENDORPHINS give you a sense of pleasure, euphoria, calm and security. Scientists have discovered that endorphins also act as a pain blocker. They stop pain receptors from transmitting “pain” messages to the rest of the body – just like morphine.

DOPAMINE is another feel good chemical that increases pleasure receptors. It is released when you do something rewarding like eating, sleeping and, of course, listening to relaxing music. It also pushes you to seek activities that make you feel good.

In addition to endorphins and dopamine, music affects the levels of immunoglobulin A and cortisol in your body.
 
IMMUNOGLOBULIN A attacks viruses and other disease-causing agents in the body. 

Music strengthens your immune system by increasing the level of immunoglobulin A in the body, 

CORTISOL is a stress hormone. High levels of cortisol can cause cravings, insulin resistance and high blood pressure. 

Relaxing music lowers cortisol levels and eases stress and anxiety.Image attachmentImage attachment

Drink! Drink! Drink!

Water is a hero when it comes to flushing bad stuff from your body, allowing your cells to refocus on doing their regular jobs instead of working overtime to fight off unwanted organisms.

Plus, water keeps your lymph fluid circulating properly, which helps in the distribution of white blood cells throughout your body to keep any leftover viruses or bacteria from re-infecting you before you’re 100% better again.
