It’s beautiful, it’s healthy and it makes you feel good. No, it’s not a gourmet salad. It’s classical music.

We’ve known for a long time that classical music can make us feel better. That’s because it really is good for us. Classical music has been shown to lower blood pressurehelp you sleep and relieve pain.

Still think classical music’s just another pretty face? Think again. Listening to classical music has also been shown to enhance some of the brain’s processes. In other words, classical music can, in some ways, make you smarter.

Join me Tuesday at noon when the Amadeus Deli goes live from the Rally for Wellness! Health Fair at Ohio State University’s Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC), 337 W. 17th Ave., Columbus. The fair is open to Ohio state faculty, staff and students only. You’ll have a chance to ask questions about healthy cooking and physical activity, and you’ll have a chance to experience your own personal “Mozart Effect” with plenty of Mozart’s beautiful, brain-boosting music.

And if you happen to be down at the Rally for Wellness! Health Fair, stop by WOSU Public Media’s booth and say hello. You’ll feel better for it!
