Studies have shown that when we sing a hormone called Endorphin is released which evokes happiness and enhances the mood. Musical time-outs are a way to calm your body and brain with soothing rhythms and to slow down your heart rate and help you breathe easier. It has the possibility to be a muse that allows people to get their creative juices flowing. Our music choices can also predict our personality.
