Thankfully, neuroscientists have found that a specially designed song can help reduce our levels of anxiety. Researchers at Mindlab International, UK examined what kind of music relaxes their subjects the most while they tried solving a puzzle. They also connected various monitors to the participants to measure their physiological responses.
That’s how they found an effective song called “Weightless” by Marconi Union. The song caused 65 percent reduction in participants’ anxiety levels, as well as a 35 percent reduction in their normal physiological resting rates.
Lead researcher Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson advises not listening to this while driving, since many participants started feeling drowsy after listening to it. Listen to the song below.
