Music for Motivation

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Music has been more than just being about entertainment. The emotional aspect of music is far reaching and unacknowledged. Music has the power of healing pain and motivating someone to heights.

Music has been man’s companion from time immemorial. The closely knitted relationship between man and human underpins the fact that music is not just about entertainment. Music has touched human life in ways beyond description. Music has been a company to man in the days of contentment and gloom. Music can prove to be a very powerful force.

Music is known to invoke a strong emotional response in our body. Putting it straight, scientists have found that listening to particularly happy or sad music impacts the way we perceive our surrounding. This very property of music can be exploited to pave the human mind and emotions.

Motivation can be similarly derived from listening to music. Music and mood have an intrinsic connection. Scientists continue to discover how these influences occur at a neuropsychiclevel. Studies prove that the music we listen, engages a wide range of neurobiological cycles that impact our psychology. One of music’s rejuvenating effects arises from its potential to engage the body’s sympathetic nervous system. Music can also increase heart and respiration rate which causes an emotional arousal. Music can even control muscle tension. Focusing on a favorite song combats de-motivating brain signals associated with failure or pain. Music motivates individuals by making them feel more successful and by stimulating positive emotions that help to rescind some of the negative thoughts in our mind.

The pertinent question now is, how particular kind of music manages to make us motivated or energized?

The subconscious mind can’t really make out the difference between listening to words coming from a person and words coming from a song. If the words that we receive resonates with our positive belief system and thoughts, we would certainly feel motivated.
