Start building up your “Pain” playlist; a recent study suggests that listening to your favorite songs can actually reduce physical discomfort—even after major surgery. Northwestern University’s Sunitha Suresh and her father Santhanam Suresh discovered the benefits of audio therapy after examining 60 young patients at a local hospital. Those who listened to their favorite music soon after surgery reported a one-point decrease (on a 10-point scale) in pain—roughly equal to taking a Tylenol. This is good news, especially for those who want pain relief without the harmful side effects of medication.
