Well being and music
Do you ever get goosebumps while listening to a favorite piece of music?
Well, researchers at McGill University in Montreal have discovered why our fave tunes make us feel good.
The experience is driven by the brain chemical dopamine, and produces physical effects known as 'chills', such as changes in heart rate, breathing and temperature.
Listening to certain music triggers this chemical reaction in the brain - the same reaction as good food money or sex.
The researches said in the journal 'Nature Neuroscience' their work may explain why musical experiences are so valued.
This is why you should be using music regularly to feel better, and to send peaceful and joyful messages to your brain!!! Be sure that you choose the "right" music for you.
