Creating music can have similar benefits to painting a picture. Rather than focusing on one specific thing, music can allow you to go with flow and give your mind a break. There is no specific destination! Allowing yourself to relax and listen to or create music can allow your mind to take a well deserved break and encourage divergent thinking
. By allowing your brain to have more flexibility, you can oftentimes find unique solutions to problems that you previously could not figure out.
It is no secret that a single song can change your mood. It has been proven that listening to positive, uplifting, or upbeat music can be beneficial for divergent thinking. Not only will upbeat music help lift your spirits, but simply taking the time to listen to the song can take your mind off of whatever might be bothering you. By focusing on something else and allowing your mind to relax, you allow your focus to shift away from what was bothering you. During your creative break you may even become inspired and discover a solution to a problem. A positive shift in your mindset is a great way to spark inspiration!
Jog Your Brain
Just as exercising your body has many benefits, so does exercising your mind! Creating something is a great way to exercise your brain. Music is a safe place to let new ideas flood in! Listening and creating music can lower your anxiety levels and improve your mood! Another way that music exercises the mind is by improving problem-solving skills. The practice of creating freely can help you to learn how to accept imperfections and mistakes. Once you have learned the skill of acceptance, you can practice adjusting to your situation. Whether it is a verse that needs tweaking, a painting that got out of hand, or a real life situation, listening and creating music can help you learn to adapt to your current circumstances or past experiences.
Music is a powerful and beautiful tool. Studies have shown that listening to music every day, even for just 15 minutes, has been proven to increase overall well-being. Put on your favorite tune and zone out for a while to get in the zone! Ready to share your creation with the world?
