Music is food for the soul, and science has explored it a lot to prove it. Here are some ways that it can help you in regular life!

Music helps us exercise.

Every time your breathing quickens, your heart-rate increases, or you feel a shiver down your spine, that’s your body responding physiologically to music. Qualified music therapists can use this to help stimulate a person in a coma.

 

Music helps bring back speech.

MUSIC_9Listening to or singing music with lyrics uses shared neural circuits as listening to and expressing speech. Music therapists use this ability to help people to re-learn how to talk.
