Well, the activity of listening to latest naija music can actually bring benefits far greater than just pampering your ears. Here are some of the benefits of listening to music, even if you choose the latest Nigerian music to add to your list.
1. Practice hearing
People who are used to listening to music have better-listening abilities than those who rarely listen to music. According to a Canadian study, the habit of listening to music can inhibit a decrease in hearing quality due to age.
2. Relieve stress
According to a study at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, the habit of listening to music every day turns out to be effective in relieving stress, because it can leave positive emotions in the audience. With a note, you listen to the kind of music that is really liked.
3. Overcoming anxiety
Positive emotions that arise after listening to music can also reduce a person’s level of anxiety. Those who like to enjoy music also have lower blood pressure than those who don’t like listening to music.
4. Healthy heart
A study conducted at the University of Maryland, USA, found that listening to pleasant music can widen the size of blood vessels to 26% of their original size. As a result, blood flow is getting smoother so that heart health is maintained.
5. Sharpening memory
Research has found that music listening therapy can be used to improve amnesia. Because the part of the brain that functions to process music is located right next to the part of the brain that functions to store memory. That’s why stimulation on the side of the brain that processes music can also affect the side of the brain in charge of storing memory.
6. Improve body immunity
The activity of listening to music that someone likes can help increase the amount of immunoglobin A, a type of antibody in the body. Not only that but listening to music can also reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol which can reduce the performance of the body’s immune system.
