A recent study has found out that listening to music is good for your heart. The study was revealed at the European Society of Cardiology's annual congress in Amsterdam. The study showed that music can aid the recovery of patients with heart disease. In fact listening to more music in general can aid the heart's health. The trial used 74 people and 3 groups. The first two group was asked to listen to music while exercising a half hour a day The second group was just asked to exercise. The third and final group didn't take part in the exercise but were simply asked to listen to music. The first group who listened to music and exercised improved their exercise capacity by 39 percent and showed significant positive changes in heart function. The second group who improved their heart capacity by 29 percent. The final group who didn't exercise at all and only listened to music improved their function by 19 percent. Prof Delijanin Ilic from the Institute of Cardiology, University of Nis, Serbia, said "When we listen to music we like then endorphins are released from the brain and this improves our vascular health. There is no 'best music' for everyone - what matters is what the person likes and makes them happy." So EXERCISE AND LISTEN TO MUSIC.
