Ten Powerful Benefits of Listening to Music

3. Music Improves Your Health and Lowers Stress


Listening to the music you love reduces the amount of cortisol in your body. Cortisol is a stress hormone that is behind chronic stress. This is important because stress is the leading cause of 60% of all the illness and disease a person suffers. If you also create music by playing percussion instruments and singing then you receive an even bigger boost to your immune system than if you were just playing.
