    Move and Groove to Manage Mood Move and Groove to Manage Mood Presentation Transcript

    • Movement, Music, and Mood
      Move and Groove to Manage Mood
    • Movement is Not Optional
      thinkingmoves.com
    • Not all Movement is Created Equal
      Frenetic random movement creates chaos
      Movement must be directed
      Movement should not be overly stimulating
      Movement is best if based in “rhythmic structure”
      Result should be calming effect
      thinkingmoves.com
    • Movement is Better with Music
      Music elicits movement
      Music affects mood
      thinkingmoves.com
    • Movement Reduces Stress and Improves Attention and Focus
      Exercise has a relaxing, mood elevating effect
      Physical activity elevates brain chemicals that are linked to attention
      thinkingmoves.com
    • Management Plan Should be Effortless
      2 – 5 minutes sessions
      2 to 3 times a day
      Minimal training is required
      Minimal space is needed
      thinkingmoves.com
    • Movement Patterns
      Simple
      Geometrical
      Little Physical Impact
      thinkingmoves.com
    • Seven Uses of Music
      To calm
      To stimulate
      As background music for concentration
      Behind small group discussions
      To improve mood
      As a Carrier of Information
      Special Uses
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Entrainment
      Definition – tendency of systems to become in synch
      Music can be one of the most powerful tools to harness entrainment
      Cardiovascular matches beat of music
      We also match the “emotional tone” of music
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Music to Calm
      Below 60 BPM (beats per minute)
      Calm “emotional tone”
      Low-medium volume
      Effects the brain chemical, seratonin
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Music to Stimulate
      120-160 BPM
      Exciting “emotional tone”
      Higher volume
      Effects the brain chemical, adrenaline
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Background Music for Concentration
      Entrainment is not a goal – need to focus without distraction
      BPM should match average human resting heart rate (60-80 BPM)
      Silent reading – 60 BPM
      Writing – 70-80 BPM
      Used to cover other background noises
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Background Music
      Unfamiliar
      Instrumental
      In a major key
      Simple structurally, with repetitive patterns
      Consistent throughout – tempo and dynamics
      Played at very low volume – so not distracting itself
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Music Behind Small Group Discussions
      Music can be used to make a “wall of sound” between groups
      Volume will be louder – volume is right when group members lean in slightly to hear other group members
      Similar in characteristics to background music with a couple of exceptions
      When right, energy level rise in the room
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Music Behind Group Discussions
      Instrumental
      Unfamiliar
      80-100 BPM
      Can have more of a beat and more instrumentation
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Music to Improve Mood
      Used during transitions between activities
      Be aware that some songs have past associations for people
      Tricky in that everyone has different tastes
      Can allow “nominations” of favorites
      Must review for appropriateness
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Feel Good Music
      No particular BPM guidelines, but feel-good music is generally bright and peppy
      Songs that most people have positive associations with
      Usually current “hits” for young people.
      For adults, feel-good music is music of their adolescence
      Effects the brain chemical, dopamine
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Music as a Carrier of Information
      Aids in retention and retrieval of information
      Music utilizes two memory pathways – automatic pathway and emotional pathway
      Music provides memory “hooks” – additional retrieval cues
      Putting content lyrics to music is the best use of musical mnemonics
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Special Uses
      Music can be used to make an experience more enjoyable
      Opening/closings
      Set the mood for an activity
      Celebrations
      Short movement breaks
      Willy Wood, Educational Consultant
    • Some Suggestions
      Explain the importance of music
      Start small and go slowly
      Don’t overuse it
      Respect individual differences
      Find some method of organization
