With that said, the tempo of the music can affect the heart rate, which can have a negative or positive effect on your workout. It is all about what, how, and when you listen to music. If you are looking to burn extra calories, try listening to music with a high tempo. There are studies that show participants who listen to music while exercising actually traveled farther than those without music. Next time you visit the gym, take a mp3 player and zone out with your favorite up tempo music. In addition, this will eliminate any outside distractions and help you complete the workout.
People listen to music at different times of the day, while some listen the entire day. Music can be used to study, sleep, workout, have sexual relations, complete a task at work, clean, cook, and even shop. Whatever genre of music being used, the listener should know that they can reap the benefits by choosing the proper tempo. If you are having troubles sleeping, try listening to soft music at night before bed instead of a shot of tequila. If you want to feel relax to decrease high blood pressure in the bedroom, throw on some Barry White instead of popping the blue pill. If you want to make cooking and cleaning fun, play some Rick James!
In conclusion, studies show that people who perform work in silence have a higher blood pressure than those listening to Jazz or the latest songs. Studies also show that people who listen to classical music while performing barely had any increase in blood pressure. So depending on how we use music, it can have a positive or negative effect. Use music to your advantage. Improve physical and mental health just by pressing play. Stay “Musically Fit”
