The holidays are over, the presents are unwrapped, and those pesky New Year’s Resolutions stand between you and your favorite mood-lifting foods and beverages.
If you’re feeling a little down, you’re not alone. During these short, cold days of winter, many people feel their mood start to slump.
But did you know that music can be a powerful tool for lifting your spirits? Music is increasingly being recognized as an important therapeutic tool for treating anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders, and has even been described as an aphrodisiac.
Playing music is especially beneficial, as it lights up and connects more parts of your brain than almost any other activity. People who take music lessons have reported numerous physical and emotional benefits, including decreased stress, improved memory, faster healing, and better sleep quality.
So if you’re *this close* to breaking your New Year Resolutions, maybe before you raid the candy jar you should be thinking about adding a new resolution instead—learning to play the piano! Or the cello! Or guitar, drums, violin, saxophone, or any of the other awesome instruments we offer lessons in here at California Music Studios.
