    Music has a direct effect on our hormones it can even be considered a natural antidepressant.
    This is because certain tunes cause the release of serotonin and dopamine (neurotransmitters)
    in the brain which leads to increased feelings of happiness and well-being. Since we know music can directly influence our hormones, it only makes sense to throw on some Beethoven (or Dark Side of The Moon?) before bed when in need of a good night’s sleep. Listening to music can also help you learn and recall information more efficiently.

    Music makes you remember those memorable moments and Sad yesterday, but sometimes music was like a person that says "you can cry on my shoulder", where you can release your emotions and it makes your feelings okay.

    I would rather listen to music and chill rather than be dependent on tablets.

    It depends on the genre. My depression is boosted whenever I listen to sentimental songs. So if I'm sad, I prefer listening to rock or reggae music.

    Music is a medium to express our emotions or feelings in a kind of certain way. People tend to listen to music whenever they feeling something either they are happy, sad, excited or depressed. Some music describes our feelings in a way that to find comfort and we feel in a way that music understands us. Thus, it helps the person to increase or reduce the specific feeling they are experiencing and for me music would be the best company to be with.

    I agree with this. Music is something relaxing that can give you peace of mind. It takes all the stress away, and all that negativity inside of you. Without music, it's really boring.

    It is actually based on the situation and the person itself. Sometimes the song might makes you more depress if it reminds of you about someone or thinking back about your problem. So, you need to hear the song that have a motivation on its lyric which might enhance your positivity.

    Music really reduces depression. This is because music makes us feel relaxed. Music is a good outlet for people who are having anxiety and too much stress. Music helps divert everyone's attention to think about the positive things while making us feel comfortable. It also gives us the opportunity to discover our musical talent and in the long run, improve ourselves. By these statements, I can definitely say that music really reduces depression.

    Yes off course, but you need to do some things while you listen.

    1º you need real concentration, all the time. If you are with your headphnes but thinking in depress things, don't do nothing.

    2º concentrate in every instruments, all the time till you get in the wolr of music and you don't need no more to pay atention to music, your brain do it for you.

    This is LISTENING, and this helps depression of course because your brain is apart from bad thoughts

    Somehow it helps, because listening to our favorite music makes us feel good. Still it varies in situation, somehow other people feel more depressed once they heard music that brings back bad memories and it depends on individual on how they deal with it. Depression is a serious mental problem but hopefully each individual learn to divert their attention from being depress to being active. Yes, music really help for it's the language that our inner self want to say that our mind and mouth denies. Listening to music that makes us happy attract positive energy and may bring us closer to being optimistic and productive rather than being depress.

    Music definitely decreases depression. There have been varies times I was in a bad place and music no doubt saved me from the end. I believe everyone should at-least have that one song that puts everything into perspective or at least makes them feel better.

    It surely does, music can change your mood 180 degrees in a few minutes or even seconds. They just get you out of any mood and take you into a different world where you can relax, hyper or evens sleep. Music is the only language that everyone can speak from the smallest babies to the oldest grandparent.

    Definitely, I have friends that experience depression and don't have means or money to treat it or go to a specialist and what they all have is a thing called "MUSIC" , they say music helps them relax and it serves as an escape from what they are experiencing at the moment in their life. Please spread the love always, Spread music!

    Music can also stimulate the mind. In my own experience every time I feel sad and stressed I just turn on the radio and listen to some love songs and it feels great and relaxed

    It depends on the kind of music a person listens to. But definitely, music calms and soothes an exhausted mind. It has the power to relax your senses.

    Is listening to music reduces depression? I would think it may help, by listening to music, it can divert their feelings. They can sort out their emotions, eased their minds and reduces anxieties. But listening to music is just a factor, a help to reduce depression, one must adhere to clinical help for thorough help.
