How Music Helps your Brain – Plus a Vivitar Light Up Giveaway

Vivitar Promo Giveaway from Happily Blended

There are many benefits to having a love of music in your life, one thing I have noticed within my household is that if I have some music playing in the background during our family time, the kids tend to be in a happier mood and seem to get along better. While I don’t have music playing in the background as often as I have in the past, when I do, you can certainly see a significant mood change within the household.

Just how does music help your brain?

  • Improves Visual and Verbal Skills – children who were introduced to music therapy at a young age actually started to understand words better and learned how to explain words better than children who were not exposed to music at an early age.
  • Helps You Slow Down – in my experience with my autistic son who participated in music therapy with his OT instructor, which had him listen to classical music during specific intervals every day, he was able to better slow down and less meltdowns occurred.
  • Helps Brain Agility – since your brain can hold onto a melody from music for a long period of time, well after the song has played, music has been shown to allow brains to regain partial or full access to memories that we may have lost along the path of growing older.

What the Teen Thought of Vivitar’s New Collection

My daughter felt that the light up stereo earphones were much louder than the earphones she had previously been using and with the ability to have the lights flashing, she felt like a super start or well at least looked like one. What she shared with me is that the earphones are easy to charge and there’s a button so when she has those earphones on in a store or at school, they don’t have to light up and break extra attention to her when she doesn’t want all eyes on her.
