Recently there was a group of musicians, sounds therapists, and neuroscientists that teamed up to develop a song to aid in anxiety reduction and stress relief. The song lasts roughly 8 minutes and has a track record of reducing overall anxiety in participants of a UK-based study 65%.
The group that composed the song uses scientific theories related to sound therapy in every aspect of the composition. Things like BPM, tones, harmonic intervals, nature sounds, Buddhist chants, and certain instruments. During the listening experience your blood pressure will fall, your heart-rate will come down to a low resting rate that will eventually match the pace of the song (slows to around 50 BPM).
Studies find it more relaxing than even a massage, a walk, or a cup of tea.
The song is ‘Weightless’ by Marconi Union. Have a listen.
