Today I'd like to share an article that illustrates how music gives us those 'chills'.


The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital conducted a study that showed that the brain chemical dopamine is released when listening to enjoyable pieces of music.Dopamine is a chemical in the brain that can cause feelings of happiness and euphoria when you do something fun, eat good food, or in this case, listen to really good music.

The article also has links to lists of chill inducing music to listen to at home!
