    I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! According to scientific studies people who listen to

    jazz music are proven to be smarter and more creative. I repeat, “people who listen to jazz music are smarter and more creative”.

    If you haven’t already jumped out of your seat and headed towards your record player or Spotify smooth jazz playlist, here’s a little more insight on the subject.

    I may have been been exaggerating a bit about the smarter and more creative part. That’s a bit difficult to prove. However, the benefits of listening to jazz music, specifically, have certainly been proven. It can affect your memory, focus, and mood.  Listening to jazz is a stress reliever and can reduce blood pressure by 30%, reduce pain by 21%, and can be as effective as a massage. It’s a pretty good excuse to nuzzle up to someone special on the couch as well.

    Here are a few insightful articles about how listening to jazz music makes you a cool cat

    and just might change your life.

    Karaoke For Your Health

    Let’s be entirely honest, singing karaoke is not everyone’s idea of a good time. For some it may be embarrassing or spark a fit of anxiety. BUT let’s talk for a moment about why singing karaoke could be awesome for you.

    Dr Michael Roizen MD who, along with Dr Oz, has authored 8 NY Times Bestselling books has this to say about singing karaoke.

    “Singing (on or off key) improves breathing—and that’s good for many parts of your body and brain. According to a recent Japanese study (of course!), the benefits of karaoke are far-reaching. Singing Sinatra—or even Aerosmith—relieves stress and boosts self-esteem and confidence, while also building social connections—all major life extenders. Plus, families that karaoke together build bonds and banish conflict.
    There haven’t been studies on how karaoke affects listeners, but listening to joyful music (and what’s joyful is always a personal opinion) reduces blood pressure, so if you enjoy what you’re singing or listening to, be a rock star or a lounge lizard and embrace karaoke”

    This new method of treatment gives a whole new meaning to the term “music heals”. Doctors in the U.K. at the Institute of Cancer Research are using tonal frequencies to zap cancerous tumors.

    The sound wave frequencies are above the audible limit for humans and can kill harmful cells deep inside an organ-while leaving the surface tissue unaffected.

    This article in the Guardian provides a more detailed look into the healing power of sound waves; It is definitely worth reading.
