Live music in Napa could be just what your body needs to feel better.


Would you believe it if someone were to suggest that listening to live music has beneficial effects to your health? Would you believe it? Well, you should! Because students from UCLA’s Mindful Music have put together live music series on campus that aims to shed light on how live music impacts personal stress levels.


“The Healthy Campus Initiative aligns very well with what we’re trying to do, which is help people feel emotionally better,” said Sean Dreyer, a second-year medical student who serves as the project’s research director. Dreyer is one of seven student directors working on the project.

The inspiration for the project was due to the fact that we, as Americans are often overworked and spend a lot of our time not enjoying fun activities like listening to music. Going out to live music events and venues also help people reconnect with one another on non-business levels. Observing creative performances also may inspire personal people to reconnect with their creative selves as well.

Music has also been known to affect people on a psychological level as well. It’s important to address those factors as they relate to and may contribute to physical ailments. Sometimes those stresses can affect everything from mood swings to actually manifesting as diseases and depression.

The importance of taking breaks from the daily routine will help keep both your body and mind in tip-top shape. Taking a road trip to see live music in Napa or staying at one of the great Calistoga hotels like Twin Pine for the weekend, may be just the thing you need to unwind. Napa casinos are also a great way to break out from the day-to-day pressures.

Remembering to treat yourself every once in a while could be one of the best decisions you make for your health. That, mixed with regular exercise and healthy eating, could lead to down the path of healthy living. Twin Pines Casino is a wonderful place to go to get those batteries recharged.
