People are living more hectic lives, where being busy is now a competitive sport. This can cause stress, and stress boosts cortisol, turning us to fight or flight mode.
So, to create some peace in the daily grind, Grolsch decided to do a music-fuelled experiment. The “Awake Your Curiosity Experiment” hooked 14 neuro headsets to volunteers, took away all distractions, and let them listen. Their emotions then did the virtual painting, creating emotion-led art.
To emphasise what stress does to the brain, Grolsch then played city hustle and bustle noise, which made the painting stop – showcasing what stress really does to the brain.

“When you disconnect from the multitasking routine, you can connect to yourself. And then, your brain has no limits.”
So pause, take a break and reconnect to yourself… listen to some music and create art on the inside!
