How can I reduce stress and anxiety?

Many neurological studies mention the effects of music on the regulation of hormones, including the stress hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol can increase alertness and lead to poor sleep. Music also triggers the release of dopamine, a hormone released during pleasurable activities.

What helps to relax?

Here are a few tips to keep in mind while incorporating music into your bedtime or relaxation routine?

  • Be consistent
    Create rituals that incorporate music in a way that’s calming and consistent. The beneficial effects of music for sleep and relaxation get stronger over time.
  • Don’t sleep with headphones
    Using headphones and earbuds while you sleep may cause damage to the ear canal and increase the risk of ear infections. Instead use small speakers without bright light, and listen to the music at a volume that is soothing and not disruptive.
  • Choose a warm and relaxing environment
    Avoid rooms with blazing lights and loud and disturbing noises. Switch off your tv or computer screen and make sure your environment is soothing and calm.
  • Be mindful
    Set aside your worries and be aware of the present moment. We all react differently to music. Whatever puts your body and mind in a relaxing and restful mode, is the right choice for you. Feel free to experiment and see what works best.

Does relaxing music really help?

"In one study, adults who listened to 45 minutes of music before going to sleep reported having better sleep quality beginning on the very first night. Even more encouraging is that this benefit appears to have a cumulative effect with study participants reporting better sleep the more often they incorporated music into their nightly routine."
"Music has many promising neurological and physiological effects that may be indicative of its effective use in the fight against sleep loss. In some clinical populations listening to music has been suggested to reduce anxiety and the subjectively negative effects of physical pain. Potential mechanisms for effect are ascribed to the modulation of sympathetic nervous system activity and levels of the stress hormone cortisol."
"Listening to relaxing, pleasant, self-chosen music reduced pain and increased functional mobility significantly in our FM patients. The music-induced analgesia was significantly correlated with the TUG scores; thereby suggesting that the reduction in pain unpleasantness increased functional mobility. Notably, this mobility improvement was obtained with music played prior to the motor task (not during), therefore the effect cannot be explained merely by motor entrainment to a fast rhythm. "
"Results indicated that music therapy constituted an effective method for reducing anxiety levels. Results also indicated a significant effect on sleep quality for the experimental group, but not for the control group....These results seem promising in the light of domestic violence research, which has found that a greater amount of personal resources is a crucial aspect of abused women's recovery process. Reduction of anxiety and improvement of sleep quality can be considered as increased personal resources, and seem feasible through the use of music therapy."
