I posted this on Facebook earlier, and thought I would share it here on my blog. I am WAY behind on my Tune Tuesday posts, and I hope to correct that soon. I know many of my followers enjoy music like I do, so I wanted to post this article I found extremely interesting.
You should listen to music every day. And according to a new study, you should listen to 78 minutes of it every day.
That’s the amount recommended by the British Academy of Sound Therapy for maintaining good mental health. But you can’t just listen to one specific type of music. There’s actually a formula. You need:
14 minutes of “uplifting” music to feel happy.
16 minutes of “calming” music to feel relaxed.
16 minutes of whatever you choose to overcome sadness.
15 minutes of “motivating” music to aid concentration.
And another 17 minutes of whatever you choose to help manage your anger.
Even though they recommend 78 minutes, 11 minutes a day still has therapeutic benefits, and you can boost your happiness with just FIVE minutes.
