10 Songs that help fight anxiety
Listening to music is great for body and mind and can even change mood. A recent study by the British organization Mindlab organized a list of the best songs to combat anxiety.
Neuroscientists analyzed a volunteer group while they performed logic activities in an accelerated fashion. Tasks were developed to boost stress levels, during which participants listened to the songs.
Through sensors, the scientists evaluated the brain activity, heart rate, blood pressure and respiration rate of each volunteer. The only one that most helped members relax was the Marconi Union's Weightless, which could reduce anxiety by as much as 65%.
In addition, other artists such as Adele, Coldplay and Mozart also entered the rankings. Check out the list of songs that, according to science, can reduce your anxiety:
1. Weightless, Marconi Union
2. Electra, Airstream
3. Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix), DJ Shah
4. Watermark, Enya
5. Strawberry Swing, Coldplay
6. Please Do not Go, Barcelona
7. Pure Shores, All Saints
8. Someone Like You, Adele
9. Canzonetta Sull'aria, Mozart
10. We Can Fly, Rue du Soleil (Café Del Mar)
The study, published in the British Journal of Psychology , evaluated the concentration of 38 participants who underwent a recent auditory memory test. Half of participants were instructed to chew chewing gum during the 30-minute test. They all heard a list of 1-9 numbers read in random order and were ranked according to the accuracy and speed with which they were able to detect a sequence of odd-even-odd numbers.
