It is said that music influences the process of thinking and analyzing, making work more enjoyable and efficient.
Studies have shown that music increases the amount of endorphins (a chemical released in the brain to reduce pain and provide a “good feeling” state) in the brain, initially, jump-starting the bodies healing process.
As it distracts the attention from pain, it concurrently generates chemical behaviors that promote healing. Along with physical healing and mental effects, music impacts human emotions.
Often, someone will listen to music when they are distraught, happy, need to focus, exercising, etc. Experiments show that music in a major key will cause a person to be happy, while the music in a minor key will bring sadder, depressed emotions.
