Stress Reducing Songs

Fast Company published a short article about specific songs that have been measured to significantly reduce stress levels.

Here’s are the 10 songs:

  1. We Can Fly,” by Rue du Soleil (Café Del Mar)
  2. Canzonetta Sull’aria,” by Mozart
  3. Someone Like You,” by Adele
  4. Pure Shores,” by All Saints
  5. Please Don’t Go,” by Barcelona
  6. Strawberry Swing,” by Coldplay
  7. Watermark,” by Enya
  8. Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix),” by DJ Shah
  9. Electra,” by Airstream
  10. Weightless,” by Marconi Union

I made a playlist of them in iTunes, and I’ve been listening to them for the past hour. I do notice a calmer and more relaxed state, especially from the “Weightless” song, which currently has 42 million plays on YouTube. So consider listening to some of them when you’d like to enter a more relaxed state of being, which can be especially good for creative work.

There’s a public Spotify playlist of the 10 songs available if you use Spotify.

There’s a free 10-hour version of “Weightless” available too.
