Research has shown that certain types of music can have a calming effect on the mind and body.
One study conducted by Mindlab International found that the song “Weightless” by Marconi Union can reduce stress levels by up to 65%. The song features calming sounds, including slow, steady rhythms, atmospheric melodies, and soothing tonal textures, which can help to slow the heart rate, lower blood pressure, and reduce cortisol levels.
Other songs that have been shown to have stress-reducing effects include “Canzonetta Sull’aria” by Mozart, “Clair de Lune” by Debussy, and “Adagio for Strings” by Barber. However, the effectiveness of these songs may vary depending on personal preference and individual circumstances. It is important to experiment with different types of music to find what works best for you.
