Since virtually all Americans experience high degrees of anxiety and literally millions (1,000,000s!) have Chronic Anxiety Disorder, the discovery of such an effective anxiety-reducing song really is a meaningful and life-changing breakthrough. Anxiety can cause painful numbness, dizziness, headaches, stomach pain, and even chest pain, but what’s worse, even common drugs used to treat anxiety often cause side effects which are sometimes as painful as the anxiety itself.
With all of this in mind, it should again be highlighted that the discovery of song that can genuinely—and extremely significantly—reduce the amount of stress which a human being experiences is unquestionably a historic breakthrough. The research in discussion was conducted at Mindlab International in the United Kingdom: participants were asked to solve various puzzles while hooked-up to sensors, and, of course, while listening to different types of music. While all of this was going on, Mindlab researchers carefully tracked the patients’ brain activity, heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing.
And—the much alluded-to results? Marconi Union’s song “Weightless” reduced patient-anxiety by upwards of 65%! What’s more, patients also experienced a 35% reduction in their physiological resting rates, which means patients ended-up being more energized in addition to more at ease. Apparently, “Weightless” was intended to be an extremely relaxing song, and musicians even reached-out to sound therapists in order to realization their intentions.
Sure sounds like you’d have everything to gain by checking the song and video out below, and absolutely nothing to lose by doing so—except a huge percentage of all that anxiety we inevitably carry around, that is.
