In today’s fast paced world, you need to be on the beat with an endless stream of deadlines and tasks, all day and every day of the week. 

But did you know that science has proven that music can play a role in helping you get through the rigours and stress of life. Research has proven that music can “improve memory functioning, increase the rate of healing, improve your workouts..”, ease stress and allow for a better sleep. So turn up those tunes!  

Music not only is good for our health, but it's also the backing track to life’s big moments - one note from a special song can bring back a flood of memories. Although cliché, music is considered effective in dealing or enhancing the ups and downs of our lives. Over decades, human behaviour strongly links music to life’s shifting ‘personality’ and ‘moods’. From breakups to burpeeschildhood memories and parties, and hip weekends to new beginnings, we know that music really does assist us in life.

And now, with the rise of music streaming, and the ease of accessing music straight from your phone anywhere, anytime, we as humans can go from using music to simply narrate our lives; to using it to make life better.

According to reports, South Africa is second on the list of countries with most notable music streaming growth and Africa is the continent with the highest streaming growth.

Now imagine that you, as a South African with a valid DStv Compact, Compact Plus or Premium subscription or are a family member of an account holder, could get access to unlimited free music.

Now that you are sharper for putting that beat through your headphones, you are probably asking - “Don’t you have to use data to stream, so I can’t do it ALL the time?”. Sure, streaming music does use data BUT instead of wasting your precious airtime or data, find those songs, make a playlist, download the playlist or any single song and listen to it when you out of data or are offline. 

Each moment has its own timing and tempo, so don’t miss a beat rather take moments to the next level.
