This song is scientifically proven to reduce anxiety
Hands up if music helps you unwind. Yep, we know we aren’t the only ones.
If you’re struggling to switch off your brain or want some chilled tunes to put you to sleep, there’s a scientifically proven song that will do just that.
According to a report by Inc, the song “Weightless” by Marconi Union will reduce anxiety and help you fall asleep better than any other song. This is because of its flowing harmonies, soft chimes and rhythms that are similar to a heartbeat. The song was also made in collab with sound therapists to make it more relaxing, so you know it’s going to bring out all those Zen feels.
When played to 40 women, Mindlab International researchers asked them to solve a puzzle in a time challenge. Overall, “Weightless” was found to be more 11 per cent more relaxing than other songs (Coldplay and Mozart were amongst the mix) and anxiety was reduced by 65 per cent.
Here it is below – but make sure you’re in a comfortable spot before hitting play.
