According to Scientists, This is The Most Relaxing Tune Ever Recorded

By Daily Health Post November 26, 2013 featured, natural remedies

This eight minute song is a beautiful combination of arranged harmonies, rhythms and bass lines and thus helps to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and lower levels of the stress. The song features guitar, piano and electronic samples of natural soundscapes.

A study was conducted on 40 women, who were connected to sensors and had been given challenging puzzles to complete against the clock in order to induce a level of stress. Different songs were then played, to test their heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and brain activity.

The results showed that the song Weightless was 11 per cent more relaxing than any other song and even caused drowsiness among women in the lab. 

It induced a 65 per cent reduction in overall anxiety and brought them to a level 35 per cent lower than their usual resting rates. 

Moreover, sound therapies have been used for thousands of years to help people relax and improve health and well-being. Among indigenous cultures, music has been the heart of healing and worship. The song, weightless is ideal for unwinding and putting an end to a stressful day.

According to Dr David Lewis-Hodgson, from Mindlab International, which conducted the research, this song induced the greatest relaxation, higher than any other music tested till date. In accordance to the Brain imaging studies, music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions. The song Weightless can make one drowsy and hence should not be heard while driving.

Self-harm epidemic part 2

7 03 2014

Some days ago I presented part 1 of “the self-harm” epidemic. The topic is important, and I recommend all the four videos for people curious about self-harm





Self harm epidemic, part 1

4 03 2014

This is the first part of a documentary about self-harm. It`s a scientific video that show that self-harm is more common than we think. We follow people who have harmed themselves, and who receive treatment with mindfulness. We see how the brain activity changes as their skills for regulating emotions develop.






About fear

8 06 2013

This is a brilliant little documentary explaining fear. Why we have it, how easy we learn it, and how easy it can be abused. You see classical psychological experiment being performed, and explained in an easy way. The best is how they focus at a solution in the end: Even if media often scare us and strengthen our fear of others, thereby planting seeds for hate and aggression towards others, it won`t work if we are aware about it. When we see that many fears are unfounded, we choose something else instead; Love and compassion. That is the antidote this world needs. Like Gandhi himself said: There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.
