Would we buy some happiness: Immerse yourself in the music
Today is World Happiness Day. We invite you to be happy or multiply your happiness every day, starting from today. How Does? Leaving yourself to the music…
“Music is food for the soul.” We all know the word. Well, is it really? Let's give you the good news then, music has an effect that is not only good for the soul, even good, but also brings happiness. Just as the author says, “Breakfast must have something to do with happiness.” He says, it is a fact that listening to music also brings happiness. Studies on depression and stress hint that when we listen to music, we activate the happiness hormone endorphin in the brain. It is not limited to this. Music also triggers the release of the hormone dopamine, which governs the reward and motivation mechanism in the brain. Even its effect on these two hormones proves that music adds happiness to our lives and reduces stress and anxiety.
Natural remedy for depression
Neuromusic, which examines the effects of music on the brain and central nervous system, is a concept that has managed to enter the medical literature and is used for treatment purposes. The Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Chinese, Ancient Egypt and Greeks used music as a treatment method, and even for Hippocrates, who is considered the father of medicine, music is almost like medicine. Let's follow in the footsteps of Hippocrates, albeit metaphorically. We can say that music acts as a natural antidepressant by increasing the serotonin hormone that decreases during depression. Then it is in your hands to relieve your depression by letting yourself go with the flow of the music.
Up-tempo, rhythmic music increases social bonds
Music also has social implications. Dance accompanied by music activates the hormone oxytocin. The increase in the level of oxytocin, the social bonding hormone, strengthens social life by strengthening feelings such as trust and bonding. Studies show that oxytocin increases the harmony between participants. Increasing oxytocin with music strengthens their ability to cooperate and bond by contributing to social interaction. So let's add some tempo to life and enjoy dancing.
