The Vital Role of Music in a Senior’s Life
“Music’s the medicine of the mind.” — John A. Logan
Imagine life without music. It’s dull, sad, full of regrets, and you just can’t go on in life without it. One thing is for sure, we need music in our lives. Music is for everybody – it has been a part of our lives. We listen to songs that hold meaning to us. Whenever we are sad, we play songs that could possibly reflect how unhappy we are, and whenever we’re happy, we play upbeat songs that inspire us even more in life.
Listening to good music is scientifically proven to enhance a person’s mood, making him or her perform better in life. How much more when seniors listen to good music?
