First paragraph.

Due to the climate change, it has been so hot recently that people feel tired easily after doing some physical activities. They always grumble on such hot days and use air conditioners to get themselves cool. However, they are too selfish. They don’t realize that people, as human, are the atmosphere destroyers. They release such a huge amount of dangerous gas to the air every day that it damages the ozone layer. Only do a few countries begin to reduce their gas emission, while the others deny polluting the air.

Second paragraph.

The high demand of social life causes young people work so hard that they ignore the importance of having enough sleep. The fatal effect of lacking of sleep is the brain damage. Most of them still haven’t been aware of this, so they never consider it a big problem.

Health benefits of listening to music

Those in the creative sector are no strangers to depression and anxiety. It has been found that creatives are nearly three times more likely than other people to live with these illnesses.

But a study conducted by Help Musicians UK has uncovered some ways to lessen the burden.

While working in the arts can result in psychological and emotional distress due to the high-pressure industry, creativity still helps develop a healthy mind. There are many outlets, but many have found music to be most accessible.

For example, a paper by Dr. Valorie Salimpoor of Toronto, Canada, says that something as simple as listening to music can release dopamine, also known as the “happy hormone”. Because of this, listening to music in the morning can greatly affect our mood for the day.

Our hearts can also benefit from listening to music, as our heartbeats match the tempo of what we hear, resulting in lower blood pressure and deeper breathing patterns. In order to fully relax, listen to a song that has a tempo of 60 beats per minute.

Finally, music can be key to our concentration as well. Not only do our hearts keep pace with the tempo, but our brains do, too. Instrumental music that has a clear and repetitive rhythm can help you focus on the task at hand. (sul/kes)
