music can improve wellbeing in your business.
Music can influence our mood
Our music choices can affect our mood.
Happy, upbeat music causes our brains to produce chemicals like dopamine and serotonin, which evokes feelings of joy, whereas calming music relaxes the mind and body.
Music can reduce our stress levels
Music affects both our autonomic nervous system which manages our heartbeat, and our limbic system which regulates our emotions.
Listening to music before a source of stress accelerates recovering time compared to when music hasn’t been listened to.
Increase concentration & focus
Get in the zone with specific genres!
Listening to genres like classical music whilst you’re carrying out immersive work can get your creative juices flowing, with no lyrics to tear you away from the depths of concentration.
Create a feel good factor
Those shivers down our spine that we feel when listening to music, well, that’s a result of a dopamine hit, both from when we hear the music we like and at the point we anticipate it coming.
Improves office morale
Music could benefit both the health and well-being of your workforce. By creating a more upbeat environment, it could also make your employees feel valued and improve their overall attitude and performance.
32% of office-based Brits surveyed feel that music is an important aspect in creating a positive work environment.
Gives you an energy boost
Music genres with a slightly higher BPM (beats per minute) than your heart rate will encourage your heart to keep pace, pumping more oxygen around your body and have you firing on all cylinders.
The perfect accompaniment for your workout
We all know exercise can improve your wellbeing but can you imagine working out without music?
According to the BPI, 75% of those undertaking gym/fitness activities did so with music as an accompaniment.*
Helps with mental health
According to the British Association for Music Therapy, music can really help those with psychological, cognitive or communicative needs.
Music therapy relies on a sensory stimulation to provoke a positive response to certain situations.
Make music the soundtrack to your business
No matter what your business you want it to run smoothly, be this assigning workloads, managing partnerships or setting out your budget.
But running a successful business is about more than just your day to day operations. It’s about providing an excellent service for your customers or clients. It’s also about encouraging teamwork and supporting collaboration; but most of all, it’s about keeping your workforce focused whilst safeguarding their well-being.
Many of us choose to listen to music in our day to day lives as it has the potential to make us feel more positive and upbeat. Listening to music at work could have a similar effect.
Playing music in the workplace could help to create a more upbeat and energetic environment and could help to keep staff positive, engaged and support with mental health and well-being.
