Brain Bulletin: Terry Shares on Music & Your Brain

Your brain affects everything you do. Smart people know how to affect their brains.

Music has a powerful effect on your brain. Do you ever play music at home to affect the brain of your dinner guests? Is music played at stores, restaurants, sports venues, and places of worship meant to affect the state of the brain? Of course it is!

By really understanding and experiencing the powerful effects that certain music has on your brain, you can get your brain to do so much more for you. Your brain is at its “learning best” when it is in the alpha brain wave state. This state occurs when your heart beat is at rest. Baroque music, between 55 to 70 beats per minute gets your brain into the alpha state and keeps it there. It produces a magical flow state!

Here is what you get:

  • More learning in less time.
  • Lower stress levels.
  • Increased concentration.
  • Improved memory.
  • Enhanced creativity.
  • Better grades in school.
  • Increased blood flow to your brain.
  • A real sense of being “uplifted” and feeling good.


I have been using baroque music for years. What are you waiting for? It is as simple as hitting the on button!
Remember:

“You are a genius!”
