The power of music on your mental health
Today, 10th October, is World Mental Health Day. On the community we thought it would be beneficial to discuss music and the things you can do to support yourself. This will be specific to the individual, but here's a suggestion.
You don't have to face mental health alone.
The power of music
Back in 2011, the MIND charity found that there is in fact research that shows the positive affect that music can have on your mental health.
Personally, this is not surprising. Have you ever put on your favourite songs and had a bit of a dance around? I know I certainly have done!
MIND have also compiled their list of #MindMusicMonday songs which can be found on Spotify. There’s a range of feel good songs that is making me have a little boogie while writing this post, so be sure to check it out.
Here are some discussions that we have had on the community about music:
- What music are you listening to?
- Live music and going to gigs
- What music makes you relaxed
- Feel good music for mental health
Do you have a favourite boogie tune? What other ways do you have of managing your mental health? Let us know in the comments below!
