What could be a better way of relieving stress? Picture this, you’ve had a horrible day at work and you got caught in loads of traffic on the way home. You know that you just need to get home, pick up your sticks and just hit the ever-loving god out of your drums. And it’s not useless violence, you’re creating music! Seriously though, drumming has been proven to help reduce stress, frustration and disappointment. Even a few minutes may improve your mood.
They say that drumming produces the same effect as a ‘runners high’ due to the release of endorphins when playing.
If reducing stress wasn’t enough, drumming can also help reduce pain, sometimes even chronic pain. This is also due to the release of endorphins, which are the natural painkillers. It is also known that drumming can help provide a distraction to grief.
