Unlocking Wellness: Kotak Insurance & Sonic Harmony.

When you buy a health insurance policy from Kotak General Insurance, you do so to protect your health and wellness. But what exactly is meant by this? Does good health only mean the absence of disease? The answer here is a firm no. Wellness refers to a state of physical and mental stability where the body and mind are both capable of functioning smoothly without any external or internal forces holding them back. Music, surprisingly, helps in achieving this. Read on to know how that happens.

Music for well-being

Music has long been used as a therapeutic measure to treat both physiological, as well as psychological disorders. Here are some ways in which music works to boost your health:

Better circulation

Several studies have shown that listening to therapeutic tunes can help the blood in your body flow smoothly and improve your circulatory health. This promotes better heart health and keeps you fit and healthy for a long time.

Mood enhancement

When you speak of the mental health impact of music, there is a lot to say! Apart from instantly enhancing your mood, music also goes a long way in reducing stress. It activates the happy hormones in your body and you feel better about the situation at hand. Music also refreshes your old memories and brings a smile to your face, even when you aren't in the best space mentally. This can be a temporary relief, but it helps you to overcome difficult situations very effectively.

Pain relief

Music has been scientifically proven to reduce the intensity of pain you feel, especially when a medical procedure is being carried out. Patients who undergo procedures are often encouraged to listen to their favourite music as it helps in reducing the pain. This is a priceless benefit of music therapy and shows how music and physical health are connected.


A large majority of the people who work out listen to music when doing so. Whether you are on your morning run or you are sweating it out in the gym, listening to your favourite music encourages you to keep going. It enhances your endurance powers. This helps you to exercise for a longer period of time, thereby improving your physical and mental health to a great extent.

Offers distraction

Whether you want to fight off binge eating, or you want to keep your mind off a stressful memory, you can do so with the help of music. This is because music acts as a great distraction and helps your brain cut off the chain of thought that forces you to think in a particular direction.

As you can see, these are some really tremendous music therapy benefits. So, plug in and listen to your favourite music whenever you can!

To wrap it up

Along with buying the best family health insurance plan, also make some time to listen to music regularly and keep your health secure. This is an easy, quick and inexpensive way to charge up your health, so do not give it a pass at any cost.
