Mindfulness by Miles

Listening to music is an activity you can do whether you’re on the morning commute, cooking breakfast, or spending time with friends.

In fact, playing music is something you can do anytime of the day!

Did you know music is not just a form of entertainment but is also good for your health?

Multiple studies have shown that listening to music can help individuals cope with stressful situations and keep them motivated.

Additionally, research projects conducted a few years ago have shown that music can lessen the impact of depression and anxiety.

According to Miles Everson, CEO of MBO Partners, listening to music puts him in a good mood. Doing so makes him sing, dance, and wear his heart out to his satisfaction.

Have you also personally experienced the positive benefits of listening to music?

If you have, great! For those of you who are curious what these benefits are, check out the list below:

  1. Music can improve your cognitive performance. 

Studies show that music improves individuals’ memory and sense of focus.  

In a Harvard Medical School study, two elderly people gained a higher score on memory tests after they finished weekly classes involving music and physical exercise. 

Also, the documentary “Alive Inside” showcased music’s ability to help those afflicted with dementia in revitalizing areas of the brain related to speech and memory.   

Lastly, listening to music stimulates brain activity, helping an individual remain alert and retain his or her focus more effectively. 

  1. Music can help you sleep better. 

According to a Sleep Foundation article, studies show that adults are able to sleep better when they listen to music 45 minutes before bedtime. 

The studies also highlight music’s ability to help release dopamine, a hormone associated with happiness.    

  1. Music can reduce stress and improve your mood.  

According to a Healthline article, “the body releases less cortisol, a stress hormone, when people listen to music.” Additionally, it’s been found that listening to songs allows a person to relax and manage negative emotions more effectively. 

Researchers from the University of Nevada also discovered that music performed through Native American, Indian, and Celtic instruments are the ones that reduce stress the best. Drums and flutes are also effective at relaxing the mind.

Clearly, the music you enjoy listening to each day isn’t just a form of entertainment; it’s a key player in your health!

So, whether it’s sharpening your mind, improving your sleep, or reducing stress, keep in mind that the tunes you enjoy have a positive impact on your well-being.

The next time you hit play, remember that you’re not just listening to music; you’re also helping yourself become happier and healthier.

About The Dynamic Marketing Communiqué’s
“Fridays: Mindfulness by Miles”

High-performance businesses are run by people who think and act differently.

In other words, these are people who are high-performing individuals.

Companies and individuals of this kind have found ways to escape the grind of commoditization and competition by focusing on the RIGHT goals.

High-performing businesses and individuals are also “return driven” businesses and “career driven” individuals. They conscientiously develop unique capabilities and resources that allow them to deliver offerings in ways no other firm or individual can.

Every Friday, we’ll publish tips and insights from MBO Partners and The I Institute’s “The Business Builder Daily” newsletter.

These will help you gain knowledge on the things that Miles Everson, the CEO of MBO Partners, often talks about regarding the future of the workforce.

We’ll also highlight other mindfulness advice on how you can be a high-performing individual both in your career and personal life.

Hope you’ve found this week’s insight interesting and helpful.

Stay tuned for next Friday’s “Mindfulness by Miles!”
