The human being is an expressive animal. We use various forms of expression to convey our emotions. Over the years, there have been many languages, signs, and artworks used to speak out the feelings and medium of giving a message. Music is the most exciting form of expression which has no confinement of any specific language. That is why it is said that music has no language, and it has the power to melt the stoned heart with its warmth.
How Music Helps Mental Health?
Music has a unique resonance that creates harmony with different brainwave states. Our brain is the most active organ in the body, and there are specific brainwave states that occur naturally during all daily activities from sleeping to creating or learning something. The secretion of many hormones also plays a vital role in influencing our emotional and physical state. Music is very important in creating a rhythmic wave to match with our feelings and awakens the soulful aura around and inside us.
