Can music control your emotions? Some say yes and others say no. Research published in The Journal of Positive Psychology states that people can improve their moods and boost overall happiness in only two weeks.

Just by simply listening to specific mood-boosting music.

Researchers from McGill University in Montreal stated, “Response to music comes from the chemical dopamine. Correlating increased levels of dopamine in the brain to corresponding music proves that humans obtain pleasure from listening to music.”

Music has been proven to improve happiness in researches; music can also cause sadness or anger. Researchers suggest if you are feeling depressed or angry, go lay down and play some calm, relax music.

Music is a wonderful thing.

Music can take you to a whole other world. Studies showed that after listening to a short piece of music, contributors were most likely to show indifferent expression as happy or sad, to match the tone of the music they heard.
