The Most Relaxing Tune ever Recorded

Monday leaving you feeling a little stressed out? We’ve got the perfect song to help you unwind…



According to scientists, the eight-minute song Weightless is the most relaxing tune ever recorded. It helps to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and lower stress levels.

In a study, 40 women were connected to sensors and given difficult puzzles to complete to induce stress. Different songs were then played to test their heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and brain activity.

According to Dr David Lewis-Hodgson from Mindlab International, which conducted the research, Weightless induced the greatest relaxation of any music tested to date.

Warning: The song can make you drowsy and should not be listened to while driving!
