Read about a study describing how listening and sharing music with family could change the way we connect with the family.
What effects shall we see by listening and sharing music with family?
Well, to answer that, let’s understand what we are losing any ways.
Technology may have opened the Pandora’s box. It is a common phenomenon across the world where the family members hardly spend time together.
This discord is predominant in cities and urban areas where technology has spurred the growth of smartphones and internet connections.
It is very rare that you may see a family eating dinner together. Or even if they do, at least one member is glued to the Smartphone or any other personal device owned by him.
The smart phone applications and its notifications are complete nuisances beyond any individual’s control.
Is it necessary to look at your smartphone every time you hear the damn notification sound?
Close your eyes and think of scenarios that may bring your family members closer.
Well, if you can’t think enough, someone has already done the home work for you.
Researchers have identified that music is one of the factors that could bring your family members together.
Listening and sharing music with family
What is the relation between music and happiness?
Here’s a quote I recently read about music and family.
Family is like music, some high notes, some low notes, but always a beautiful song
The technology giant Apple Music and Sonos jointly conducted a study to understand the behavior of family members in the proximity of music.
The researchers studied the behavior of over 30,000 people and several families across various countries.
Here are few findings from the study.
The respondents listening to music out loud were reported to spend three times more quality time with their family members as compared to the respondents who didn’t.
Respondents believed that the food tastes 58% better at dinner while listening to music.
Expression of love increased by around 14% for the respondents who listened to music at home.
Help from children while at home increased by around 23%.
People experienced 15% more laughter while 16% improvement in moods while at home.

I believe, anyone who could increase people’s laughter by even 1%, is a hero for me.
If “music” could bring smiles to people, then obviously it is one of the precious things on this planet.
So, what are you waiting for?
Just reshuffle your music playlist and play out loud some good vibes to bring happiness to your family.
