When your playlist strikes all the right chords, your body can go on a physiological joyride. Your heart rate increases. Your pupils dilate. Your body temperature rises. Blood redirects to your legs. Your cerebellum—mission control for body movement—becomes more active. Your brain flushes with dopamine and a tingly chill whisks down your back.
Music affects our brains the same way that sex, gambling, and potato chips do [not tried sex] (as yet) or gambling…so wouldn’t know about that 😀 Potato chips… like seriously!? ~~ the Internet says so 😉
Ever had your browser look like this? many tabs open at the same time…? I guess we have all done it some time or the other.
Well for me today, as I logged into YouTube to play a particular song, seeing the suggestions on the right side of other similar genre, one song led to another…and suddenly a lot of tabs were open. I’m in one of my listen-n-connect to a song moods. Yes, I’m thinking of someone, and its causing a flood of memories…but then as they say, “you can’t change the past, but you can always do better today and have a brighter tomorrow”
I love listening to English slow music, be it love ballads or instrumental… It takes me to a different place all together…and if heard through the headphones…that’s it…I maybe physically present, but mentally and emotionally I’m far far away.
What effect does Music have on you…?
