Housing Options in Lebanon County...Setting the Mood with Music...Upcoming Socials
In the Mood for Music

We often listen to music to match or alter our mood.

Because of its rhythmic and repetitive aspects, music engages the neocortex of our brain, the portion of our brain involved in sensory perception, thought, and language. A 2013 study in the Journal of Positive Psychology found that people who listened to upbeat music could improve their moods and boost their happiness in just two weeks. A 2015 review in The Lancet found that people who listened to music before, during, or after surgery experienced less pain and anxiety, compared to patients who did not listen to music. 1  

Listening to music can boost your mental health. Music that has at least 60 beats per minute can improve your focus. Music connects people: talk with others about a shared favorite band or go to a performance. The right kind of music can either motivate you or create a calming atmosphere, alleviating anxiety.
