We all know from experience how listening to music can affect our emotions. Often, we listen to music that reflects our current mood. Other times, we choose certain music to change the way we feel, like listening to happy music to cheer us up when we’re sad.
We may put on romantic songs to set an amorous mood, or crank out some forceful, energetic tunes to motivate us at the gym.
Whether you love classical music, rock, Broadway, or jazz, listening to your favorite music generally helps lift your spirits.
During stressful situations, however, ambient music may be the best choice to calm your frazzled nerves.
