How You Can Use Music to Brighten Your Day

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

Spring sunshine is just around the corner, but in the meantime there’s another way to brighten your day: music!

Music is tied to memory, and triggers a dopamine response that can turn a gloomy day bright. Music is also an effective way to lower cortisol levels. There are countless benefits of listening to music. A new hobby involving music lessons is also a great way to reap the benefits of music.

If the weather has gotten you down or you are feeling off, the following list will give you a few ways to use music to light up your day.

Listen to Upbeat Music

It’s in the name; upbeat music can help you feel, well, upbeat. This type of music will get you in the mood to move. If you are feeling sluggish or down, turn the music up and dance! You might be inspired to work out or dance around with a smile on your face. Both are great ways to improve your mood.

Since happiness is linked to physical health, it’s imperative that if you’re feeling blue, find the right song, sit back, and enjoy the tempo. It’s only a matter of time before you start feeling good and your anxiety or stress begins to subside. The benefits of music will help you overcome the funk you may find yourself in.

Have a Jam Session With Your Family

Music is a wonderful way to get the family together. Why not organize a jam session with your family? There’s no need to leave the house; just clear some space and turn up your favourite song. The music and the movement will have you and your family laughing and feeling energized.

It’s also a great way to release the pent-up energy that the little ones might have. You can even put together an impromptu band. Put those music lessons to use, impress fellow family members, and see what you can come up with together.

De-stress by Playing Music

The benefits of music are endless, and there are even advantages in creating music by playing an instrument. Whether you’re a novice or pro, channeling your energy into something beautiful is an effective way to change your mood.

Playing an instrument allows you to sit back and lower your stress levels by focusing on what you’re creating. This is the time to get lost in the moment, and let your mind wander and feel the music. Focus on the negative energy leaving your body, and embrace the positive feelings that follow.

Not only is playing an instrument soothing, but it can also be a form of physical activity, which will also benefit your mood. Many instruments require movement and upper body strength, thus allowing you to build muscle and stamina over time.

If you’re not sure how to play an instrument, then don’t fret. At Allegro Music School we offer various music lessons for your instrument of choice, and we also provide music therapy classes and more. You don’t have to be an expert to reap the benefits of music. You just have to be open to learning and accepting of the beautiful gifts that music has to offer.
