Welcome to the Activ Living Podcast with Dr Aditi Govitrikar. In this podcast, Dr Aditi talks about music therapy and how it can have a positive impact on our lives.
What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is using music to help improve your physical and mental state. Music can lift your mood, help calm you down, or even motivate you. The numerous benefits of music therapy include reducing stress and anxiety, delaying the progression of diseases like Alzheimer’s and cancer, and making mundane tasks more enjoyable. Music has also been found to boost immunity. Using the right music at the right time can change the state of mind and enable people to overcome all kinds of difficulties.
Like the Greek philosopher, Plato said, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything”. Music really does heal. Dr Aditi also gives tips on how to create song playlists that you can use at different times as and when you need some music therapy. So, grab your phone and your earphones select a playlist, and get an effective therapy session for free.
