1 trick to SAVE YOURSELF
If you’ve ever rocked your grandbaby to sleep with a soft lullaby, you know just how soothing music can be.
Or when the “right song” comes on and gets you in a better frame of mind after a bad day.
Well, you’re not just imagining these effects...because science has confirmed that our brains are hard-wired to respond to music.
In fact, research has found music can stimulate more parts of the brain than ANY OTHER type of human function.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear a groundbreaking new study finds music might just be the trick to SAVING your life...
The power of music
In a study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers tested the effect of music on the risk of falls in seniors.
They examined more than 152 patients at St. Mary’s Hospital in Canada. Out of the participants, only 61 attended music listening sessions.
To measure how music affected patients’ fall risk, researchers compared Morse Fall Scale scores upon admission and discharge.
Those who were regularly exposed to music significantly reduced their risk of falls!
Here’s the thing: Depressive symptoms have been linked to a higher risk of falls…
But by enhancing your mood, and reducing depression – your risk goes down.
This is music to my ears!
Now, the fact that music helped patients improve their balance doesn’t come as a surprise to me...
Previous studies have found music can improve everything from sleep to reducing chronic pain to helping cancer patients heal.
The best part? Nearly every song from your glory days is now at your fingertips!
There are free and low-cost services like Spotify and iTunes to listen to your favorite tunes.
Or, then again, maybe this is the perfect excuse to get that old record player out.
Whatever gets you groovin’!
While you’re at it, make sure you get up and dance. Studies show dancing can protect against all kinds of “nasties” like heart conditions and dementia.
