Music is relaxing always, whether resting or working.
Now researchers say music is relaxing while driving also, especially if you are less experienced.
Drivers have to live with stress, particularly when stuck in heavy traffic or going through tough conditions. Apart from inexperience, many things will add to the stress of driving. And stress is not good for your hearts too.
If we listen to relaxing music while driving, this may help relieve stress and protect the heart, a new study suggests.
The study was done by researchers from São Paulo State University in Marília, Brazil, Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom, and the University of Parma in Italy, there is.
The researchers found encouraging results of a study involving inexperienced drivers, noting that listening to music while driving helps relieve the stress that affects heart health.
“We found that cardiac stress in the participants in our experiment was reduced by listening to music while they were driving,” says principal investigator Prof. Vitor Engrácia Valenti.
The results of the small-scale experiments, the researchers argue, suggest that listening to relaxing music could, indeed, be an easy way of preventing stress levels from escalating and affecting the heart when someone finds themselves stuck in traffic.
