“Weightless” by Marconi Union has been shown to reduce anxiety in listeners by up to 65%, according to Inc. The song, which was composed with the help of sound therapists, helps insomnia and reduces stress levels — plus, it’s really beautiful. In other words, you need it in your life.
Every note in the eight-minute song is designed to lower your heart rate and blood pressure — ultimately reducing your body’s level of the stress hormone cortisol, according to The Guardian.
There is one caveat — researchers advise against listening to “Weightless” while you’re driving because it’s truly that relaxing.
Although there’s no quick fix for depression or anxiety disorder, listening to music is a powerful coping method that’s easy to incorporate into your daily routine.
