Many people have asked me why I have upbeat music in the office. Other than personal preference, I have found something that SHOULD catch your ear…
I am always looking to improve what I do, and the results in the clinic. This is one small thing that I thought I would share with you.
A recent study published in a top medical journal (Lancet) has recommended music as a way to reduce pain and anxiety.
The brain releases neurotransmitters that activate the feeling of “pleasure” when you listen to your favorite tunes!
Now everyone knows why we have a list at the front desk that is asking you for your favorite songs! I want you to ENJOY your time in the office. I know… I am craaaaaazy. Don’t worry, not only do I want you to enjoy your time, but I also want to activate your immune system.
Let’s be honest, we all knew that music makes us happy, but most had no idea that it reduces pain, depression and actually empowers us!
WOW! So next time you are feeling blue, or have a little pain bringing you down, remember to turn up the tunes and sing like no one is watching. Not only are you improving your immune system, but you are bringing joy to all of us who look to the car next to us and see someone belting out their favorite show tune.
Why a show tune?
One study showed that singing show tunes may have improved the cognitive ability of dementia paitents! Yes! Now that is some research that probably effects each and every one of us in some way or another. If you don’t have someone in your life suffering from dementia, then congrats, but please do not take it lightly.
Moral of the story is that not only do I look our for ANY way to improve your experience in the office, but please, let the front desk know what your favorite song is!
