THE HEART AND MUSIC

Music is one of the few activities which involves using the whole brain. It is intrinsic to all cultures and has surprising benefits, not only for learning the language, improving memory, and focusing attention but also for physical coordination and development. It relaxes the mood and lightens the soul.

Loud music has variable pitches. It usually gets louder and noisier. Researchers from Pavia University, Italy, in a study concluded that music with quicker tempos made people breathe faster which increased their heart rate and blood pressure. Whereas, on the contrary, slow and soft music brought the opposite results. It lowered heart rate and blood pressure. As a result of various such studies, music is now being used as a rehabilitation medicine for the sufferers of blood pressure. In cardiovascular units, slow and quiet music is played which relaxes the patients and lowers their blood pressure and heart rate.

Music can be inevitably beneficial for us if we only know what type of music should be heard in different situations. As music is not just a source of entertainment, but also a source for the good of our body and heart.
