Health Music to better deal with loss 

 

Dedicated areas of the library have been studied and designed to support the 4 main issues related to the process of loss and grief.  

 

Emotion


Music is intimately linked with emotions. Central cognitive and brain functions related to emotions, are activated by music listening events. With music, we allow ourselves to experience feelings or even share emotions that might not be easily shared through words. Also, music triggers memories and helps creating new and meaningful ones. Music has been part of human history in times of rituals and celebrations because its ability to help elaborate, process and overcome difficult emotions. Genote makes this powerful resource readily available.

Pain


Pain takes a natural and central position while we grive. Pain can influence many aspects of our daily life. When not duly elaborated, it becomes a source of stress and anxiety. Grief can damage our relationships and health. Listening to music helps, but using evidence-based therapeutic music is shown to reduce stress and anxiety.(3) Studies show how the right type of music can decrease cortisol levels (4;5), reduce heart rate and blood pressure (6) in people of all ages. The Genote Library works to minimize the effects of chronic stress and improve mental, physical and emotional health.

Mood


Sadness, depressive emotions, anger and feelings of hopelessness can be elaborated and expressed through music. Studies show music's capacity to reduce depressive symptoms (Chan et al., 2011) and the incremental ability to improve mild and severe depressive symptoms over time. Stress and anxiety are also reduced by listening to music interventions (3)

Genote personal support is offered to listeners as a mood regulator for individuals and groups. Through tested music protocols, we can create a compresence of positive and negative emotions by pairing the listener with a meaningful and positive experience.

Sleep


Sleep disturbance and daily routine disruption are common experiences in individuals who are processing grief. Studies show how bereavement contributes to sleep issues (39), with related physical and mental challenges. Health, functional status, and mood, can be improved by treating sleep deprivation in bereaved adults, with a consequence contribution to the person's recovery.(40)

Improved sleep quality is shown by subjective and objective data when music interventions are adopted as part of the grieving process and as a bedtime routine.(1) Numerous clinical studies indicate a strict correlation between music and enhanced relaxation.(2)
