In this episode I talk about the impact of music on our emotions. After doing some research, I learned that our Default mode network is activated much more when we listen to music. And when listening to music we enjoy, there is more frontal activity in the brain. This activity is linked to greater analytical and reflective thoughts in our life.
If you have ever really enjoyed a song, it might have brought out a deep emotional influence for you that made you reflect. This is where that activity in the default mode network and frontal area is being experienced. We begin to associate different songs with different memories in our life and begin thinking about those songs in connection to where we are at personally.
And through music, we are able to take the time to reevaluate where we are at and make greater strides in our life. If you have ever wondered about how music impacts us and our emotions, tune in!
