Music helped people get through the pandemic stress: Study

Aug 30, 2021 17:15 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A study published in Psychology of Music suggested that people adjusted their music listening habits as a way of coping with the COVID-19 crisis. The study specifically focused on people’s impressions of how their music listening habits changed (or did not change) during the lockdown period when compared to regular times.

For the study, the researchers surveyed 5,000 participants from six countries, during the first COVID lockdown from April to May 2020. People from Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, India and the United States answered questions online about their exposure to music during the coronavirus pandemic.

As per the findings, more than half of the respondents listened to music to cope with emotional and social stress. Researchers also found that people who had an increase in positive emotions were either listening or making music to cope with their feelings during the pandemic.
