Music plays a key role in our lives. It is a way in which our feelings and emotions can be expressed. It brings positivity to our lives and helps in connecting to our inner selves. It acts as fuel to our minds and thus fuels our creativity. It has the power to command our attention, inspire and unite us. Music is all around us and all we have to do is just listen to it, like in the chirping of birds, the sound of waves and raindrops, and also the rustling leaves in the wind. Some people listen to music to escape from the pain they are going through or some listen to it so that they can be at their serenity. Because of tough competition and struggles in life, many young adults are suffering from various health issues and mental health problems such as anxiety, stress, etc. The purpose of the study is to analyze the effect of music in men and women ranging from 20 to 30 years in age. The study was conducted on a total of 140 participants i .e., 70 male and 70 female. Standardized scales were used to study the effect of music in young men and women. The results found out that males are higher than females in cognitive regulation. We can further expand our horizons for research by studying the effect of different genres of music on people.
