Is this melody that lowers anxiety and stress?
Music has always been associated with good mood, relaxation and happiness. Music therapy helps reduce stress. When stress is known to be an important factor in physical and mental health, the effects of music on health are even more important to recognize.
US researchers have also identified the world’s most soothing melody. Even neurologists in the UK think they have discovered a part that eliminates stress.
Mindlab International is a firm that conducted a study where participants were given difficult tasks and the brain monitored. Many types of melodies were heard in the background during the study.
Among them, it was found that one of the tunes reduced the stress to 65%. The tune was called “Weightless” and was from the band “Marconi Union”.
The monitoring showed that this part was 11% more effective than the others.
