Why Music Makes Me Happy!

Everyone has that one thing that makes them insanely happy whether it’s sports, shopping, dogs, cats, etc. The possibilities are endless!

When asked this question myself I didn’t hesitate with my answer because ever since I could remember that one thing that always makes me happy is music, especially listening to my favorite band, All Time Low.

According to Seeker.com listening to music that moves you can cause the brain to release dopamine, which is a chemical in the brain that is involved in both motivation and addiction.

I may not know how to play an instrument or sing well at all (which doesn’t stop me from jamming out to my favorite song in the car), but it doesn’t stop me from loving music in my own way. I show my love for music and how it brings me happiness in many ways from creating specific playlists for different moods I may have, going to concerts, taking photos at concerts, etc.

Music has helped me through my most stressful and anxious moments in life by being that one thing to calm me down and bring a smile to my face. For example; when my dad was deployed for a second time I really struggled with the stress of him being overseas, but when I would listen to All Time Low’s music it really helped me calm down and make me happy!

Does music make you happy and if so why? Or do you have something else that makes you insanely happy? Share with us!
