Did you know that music helps plants grow? Some studies indicate that jazz music will produce better and more abundant growth on plants. The science television show MythBusters did a similar experiment and concluded that plants reacted well to any type of music, whether rock, country, jazz, or classical.
Music also helps artists grow. A new study suggests that listening to happy music promotes more divergent thinking—a key element of creativity. When your creativity is bubbling, you grow as an artist. So, do a little en plein aire painting in your garden and crank up that old time rock-n-roll.
