Here’s Some Music That Can Ease Your Stress

Stress is present in every aspect of life. And sometimes, if you feel like you’re succeeding in one or even more aspects of your life, there will always be tension in another. People opt to relieve stress by listening to music, specifically by playing their favorite songs again and again.

People feel better when they listen to their favorite songs. However, research suggests that listening to your favorite music may not be the best way to relieve tension and pain. As a student, music will help you be at ease when you feel overwhelmed with all the recurring tasks.

Fast and Slow Listening

Although quicker music improves productivity and makes you feel upbeat, only slower music can help you relax and de-stressed.

Slower beats have a calming effect on the listener. Faster beats are unable to elicit the same emotion. Rather, they seem to stimulate more attentive and focused thinking. This is helpful in other instances, but not for reducing stress.

Slower classical music was found to help reduce “anxiety, heart rate, and blood pressure” in a Monash University study. Classical music’s effect on the brain may aid in alleviating  depressive symptoms as well as general anxiety and tension.

Slower musical beats can slow down brainwaves, resulting in a more meditative or hypnotic state. Music therapists and cognitive scientists have invested a lot of time researching how musical rhythms affect our brainwaves and emotional moods.

The use of headphones to listen to music has also been found to lower tension and anxiety in hospital patients undergoing surgery. It can help individuals with chronic and surgical pain alleviate both physical and emotional suffering.

Relaxing Music Doesn’t Have to be Boring 

Slow music, particularly slow classical music, can be tedious for some  listeners. Forcing  yourself to listen to slow music that you don’t appreciate won’t help you relax; instead, you’ll be tense. You don’t have to push yourself to listen to music that you don’t really enjoy.

If you don’t usually listen to a lot of slow music, you can check out some nice playlists  on  YouTube  or Spotify. The music is soothing yet not tiresome for those who aren’t used to listening to slow music.

You might want to check out the following YouTube tracks:

  • Angels of Venice – Pachelbel’s Canon
  • The Winding Path
  • Spa Relaxing Music
  • Classical Indian Music for Healing and Relaxing
  • Buddha Spirit

Begin listening to music aside from your favorite genres to uncover tunes that will help you relax. When you listen to more music, you’ll discover increasingly effective tracks that are matched to your preferences. Don’t oblige yourself to listen to music you despise; instead, listen with an objective mind and notice how the rhythms and melodies improve your mood. It’s possible that you’ll be surprised by this.
