Anxiety Reduction by 65%
#1
A neuroscientist has discovered how to reduce stress and anxiety by 65% simply by listing to the music in the video below. It's just over 8 minutes long, so anyone should be able to fit this into their day when needed.
Lord knows we all need an anti-stress program right now with all the nonsense going on in the world.  Enjoy!

Quote:Music is a powerful catalyst for consciousness healing and evolution. Listening to music is a whole brain activity that helps restore proper balance and functioning of the mind/body system. But not all music is created equal. Some can invoke powerful states of wholeness and balance while others can increase anxiety. A team of researchers discovered that one song, in particular, has an incredible power to restore emotional balance in the same way meditation can.

Anxiety is a state of stress that reduces whole-brain processes and higher functions. Creativity, intuition, inspiration, happiness, reverie, love, and bliss are whole brain activities that cannot be invoked while also suffering from a state of fear and stress. Fear and anxiety—especially due to lack of performance in school, social situations, and the workplace—can leave people in a crippled state that often goes unaddressed, becoming a form of trauma leading to PTSD. What’s more, competition culture—which we can also think of as comparison culture—has become the norm for most of the modern world.

The Creation Of The Ultimate Anti-Stress Music

Researchers at Mindlab International in the U.K. wanted to know what kind of music induces the greatest state of relaxation. The study involved having participants try to solve difficult puzzles — which inherently triggered a certain degree of stress — while connected to sensors. At the same time, participants listened to a range of songs as researchers measured their brain activity, heart rate, blood pressure and rate of breathing.

What they found is that one song — “Weightless” — resulted in a striking 65 percent reduction in participants’ overall anxiety, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates.

Interestingly, the song was specifically designed to induce this highly relaxed state. Created by Marconi Union, the musicians teamed up with sound therapists to carefully arrange harmonies, rhythms and bass lines, which in turn slow a listener’s heart rate and blood pressure, while also lowering stress hormones like cortisol.

In fact, the music is so effective, that many of the female participants became drowsy — to the point where lead researcher Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson advises against listening to it while driving.

But don’t take their word for it. Experience it for yourself here:

I listened to over half of this before I had to stop to answer the phone.  It does seem to work.   minusculethumbsup
