Given the state of things it should come as no surprise that the stress level of your average human is higher than it should be. We all have techniques and processes that help us manage that stress; but what if I told you that there was a song made with the soul purpose of de-stressing you? The group Marconi Union created their song Weightless with the help of real life sound and auditory therapists. The arrangement of the instruments along with the specific melody will lower your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and even help to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
It all came from a study done by Mindlab Internationals Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson where he had subjects try to solve difficult puzzles quickly while being hooked up to sensors and machines. By playing the song for his subjects he noticed a 65 percent reduction in anxiety and a 35 percent decrease in their resting physiological rate. That's all fancy city learned science talk for, this song will really make that horrible day you had at work wash away.
There's also a 10 hour version if you had a really rough week and want to sleep away your whole weekend. Go ahead, I won't tell.
