Music Livens Things Up
It can help you get 'physical'
Music has been proven to help your emotional state, but, according to the journal Perceptual Motor Skills, it can also help you physically.
Researchers from the Yamano College of Aesthetics in Tokyo had a group of middle-aged women perform a bench-stepping exercise for 60 minutes. Some listened to Japanese folk music, while others heard no music.
At the end of the hour, the women who listened to the music were less tired and less confused than the control group.
