If there is one thing that most of us could use, it is something to help us relax and let go of the stress of our daily lives. Many of us turn to music to help us in this endeavor. Scientists are now saying that the song “Weightless” by Marconi Union is the best thing for us and is the most relaxing piece of music ever recorded. Take a listen and judge for yourself.
The song, created by the band from Manchester, England, is a carefully arranged series of rhythms and harmonies that help reduce heart rate and blood pressure, and lower the stress hormone cortisol. The group worked together with sound therapists to come up with a soothing tune that slows breathing and lower brain activity.
