Neuroscience Says This Song Reduces Anxiety by Up to 65 Percent

Many of us had an ear-bashing from New Year revelers who got stuck in a continuous party time loop and I can tell you the one I am experiencing right now has lasted since midnight yesterday, NON-STOP and the thumpity, thump, thump, is still continuing as I write. 

So, needless to say, there will be many like me, in search of emergency stress management. When things get difficult like having lost some serious sleep, through inconsiderate party freaks or getting stressed up commuting to and from work, school, or in your life in general, you and I can use as many tips, tricks, and techniques as we can get to calm our nerves. 

So, I have just tested this FREE gift to you which is science-backed as well, its a song which was found to be the most relaxing song on earth. Sound therapies have been popular as a way of relaxing and restoring one’s health for centuries. Some indigenous cultures have used music to enhance well-being and improve health conditions for generations.

 Now, some U.K. neuroscientists have conducted a study on participants who attempted to solve difficult puzzles as quickly as possible while the tune gives you the relaxation your body needs. You need not even be connected to special instruments other than a pair of headphones. 

In the research, scientists measured brain activity as well as physiological states that included heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate. Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson of Mindlab International conducted the research, and according to his findings, the top song had produced a greater state of relaxation than any other music tested in history.

 It’s called, “Weightless” By Marconi Union, listening in fact, to just this one song β€” resulted in a striking 65 percent reduction in participants’ overall anxiety levels, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates. 

here is the song.

    • Wow, amazing Ellie, I’m just being inquisitive, but how do heavy metal music and general upbeat stuff affect you, bands like Deep Purple, Led Zep and Def Leppard, Jethro Tull, etc? My middle brother used to really relax while listening to those groups, YES, he was sober at the time…
