5 Surprising Side Effects of Listening To Music

15 February 2024

Well-written music can make us feel happy or sad, excited or tense. Our favourite music can cause us to sing and dance. Beyond that, music also produces some surprising side effects.

  1. In hospitals, music reduces the pain that patients feel after surgery and reduces patient anxiety levels.
  2. Listening to the right type of music during a workout or when exercising can delay the onset of fatigue and increase endurance. With music at the right beats per minute, you can work out harder and longer.
  3. If you run a bar, you’ll want to know that the louder you play your music, the faster your customers will drink and the more they will order!
  4. Listening to music has been found to have a positive effect on our immune systems. If you want an even bigger boost, play an instrument too.
  5. If you leave your dog home alone, playing them some classical music is the most effective way to get them to lie down and settle.

Now a question, when was the last time you thought about the effect your music was having on your customers, or your staff? There’a big danger if you don’t. As you can see, music does a lot more than make people sing and dance. It creates physical and psychological changes which you can take advantage of.
