I would prefer to explain in details how music is capable of boosting memories first. Assuming you find your self listening to a particular music that you used to hear several years ago.The moment the music hits you,then almost every memories in your past resurfaces. It could be a romantic moment you had with your ex,an event that happened,something interesting that happened to you,your friends,family or school mates etc.The reminiscence could be so strong that you would miss those moments and prefer the music never ends.

Music helps patients before and after surgery by reducing anxieties. It is also good for people suffering from insomnia.Some friends of mine would always put the music on when they are about to sleep and as the music plays they will simply doze off.In the afternoon many people prefer soft music like jazz,blues and soul at places like cafeterias, hotels,pubs, and honestly you can take a nap right there and wake up afresh within some few minutes.

Music is also known to enhance running performance.Runners who train by listening to soft or motivational music  are known to do better because the music distract the mind from sending fatigue signal to your body,thereby reducing the tiredness to help you move extra miles ahead.So if you ever see an athlete training with his earpiece in his ears,that is his secret.You can also try to enjoy this amazing benefit of music.

Finally, the above reasons are very practical and you can try almost all of them and know why music is good for you.Sometimes we could find ourselves listening to music we do not understand.This shouldn’t be a problem so far as the music has pleasant beats to the ears and the mind it is music.I believe understanding of music is not really important because we don’t even understand the songs of birds,yet we say they sing beautiful songs.On the other hand if the music has profanities then it becomes questionable. I wouldn’t recommend such music to anyone, although that particular music would be someone’s favourite.
