Song reduces anxiety by 65%


In today's world it's hard not to be stressed about the news, life or a particular situation that you are going through. You can experience a good stress that gets you motivated or negative chronic stress the can impact your emotional and physical health. The APA outlines five healthy ways to manage stress:

  • Take a break from stressors

  • Exercise

  • Smile and Laugh

  • Get social support

  • Meditate

Another way to reduce anxiety and stress is MUSIC! I think we have all listened to a song that has relaxed us or reminded us of a happy time. Recently, the song "Weightless" developed by the band Marconi Union and a sound therapist was studied by several UK neuroscientists and showed that the song produced a greater state of relaxation that any other music tested, lowering anxiety rate by 65 percent. Mindlab International that conducted the study has put together a Spodify list of the "most relaxing songs ever" with Weightless being the most effective.


Take a listen and relax!


Warning from Dr David Lewis-Hodgson, from Mindlab International: "In fact, Weightless was so effective, many women became drowsy and I would advise against driving while listening to the song because it could be dangerous."
