New study shows that listening to music makes you more intelligent
If you enjoy listening to music then there is good news, it has been scientifically proven that listening to music has numerous surprising health benefits. An infographic produced by secondary ticketing market Ticketbis has revealed some interesting benefits to listening to music including reducing stress, relieving pain, and improving brain power.
It may not come as a surprise to many that music has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, reduce anxiety or make you work out harder, but what is interesting is that music has been proven to be as good at lowering anxiety as a massage. Equally as surprising is the news that music can have as big an effect on anxiety as a sedative.
Another fascinating discovery is that live music is more effective than recorded music. Research has shown that live music is more effective than taped music at reducing anxiety and improving your mood, which is fantastic news for those who love attending concerts and festivals. Music has even been shown to increase intelligence. If you are looking to improve your mental performance, studies have shown that listening to music while performing a task increases cognitive performance.
So no matter what type of music you are into, listening to music can keep you fit as a fiddle, which is always a great thing to keep in mind when you’re thinking about whether or not to go to an upcoming concert or festival.
