Break the Silence:
Music Lifts those Winter Blues
Music is, beyond a doubt, one of the greatest forms of healing. There are numerous studies showing the benefits that music has to one's overall health and its usefulness in combating depression, anxiety, stress, and fatigue. Music can even impact the way our brains perceive the world as written about in Daniel J. Levitin's book, This is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession.
As we all know, there is music for every mood, but if you're feeling down pick something uplifting to the soul or with a fun, carefree beat. Get those tunes pumping on a cold winter day and if you feel inspired, sing or dance along.
