Subjects with serious lung disease who listened to music while walking covered an average of 19 total miles over the course of an eight-week exercise intervention study. In comparison, the group that didn't listen to music only walked an average of 15 total miles ? 21 percent less - by the end of the study.

It suggests that participants in the music group may have felt less hindered by shortness of breath, the primary physical symptom of serious lung disease.
