Sometimes we all get a little sad and that leads us to listen to sad music. A lot of people listen to music that relates to their feelings. However, that may not always be the best thing to do. For instance, many people don’t realize that listening to sad music when they’re feeling down actually causes their depressed mood to worsen.
The same phenomenon occurs with happy music. If someone is in a good mood they usually listen to happy music, increasing their good mood. In a more complex scenario, if a happy person listens to sad music it tends to change their mood around and they become sad; when an upset person listens to happy music their mood tends to switch around to a happier mood. It’s important for people to take note of the affects music has on their moods because, whether they realize it or not, music has a huge impact on people’s moods.
