The science of why music makes us feel good
Updated: Sep 23, 2022
We all know that feeling good is great, but have you ever wondered why? Science demonstrates that music improves our mood, increases our sense of well-being, and even improves our cognitive functioning.
Music can help us forget about our problems. When we are playing or listening to music, we forget about what bothers us. This can be a great way to de-stress.
Music also does us good by releasing dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and reward.
