Listening To This Song Will Reduce Your Stress By 60% [Video]
Reduce stress? Who wouldn't want to sign up for that? I think we all need a "go to" when it comes to hitting the reset button on the hectic pace of our daily lives. If this piece of music can do what scientist say it can do it should be on everyone's playlist.
The song is called Weightless it's by Marconi Union and it is the most relaxing song in the world. This particular piece of music was found to be 11% more relaxing than any other song researchers used in the study.
How does it work? According to British Academy of Sound Therapy, Liz Cooper
The harmonic intervals – or gaps between notes – have been chosen to create a feeling of euphoria and comfort. And there is no repeating melody, which allows your brain to completely switch off because you are no longer trying to predict what is coming next … Instead, there are random chimes, which helps to induce a deeper sense of relaxation. The final element is the low, whooshing sounds and hums that are like Buddhist chants [that] put you in a trance-like state.

Does it work? I have to admit, I put this on yesterday afternoon and laid down with my headphones on. I woke up about three hours later so there could be some merit to the findings in the study. You'll just have to give it a listen for yourself to see if this is "the little rubber hammer" that you can use to figuratively knock the stress right out of your day.
