Nothing To Lose!

According to neuroscientists from Mindlab International, ‘Weightless’ created in 2011 is said to reduce stress levels by around 65%, more than any other song tested in history! It was created specifically for this purpose by Marconi Union and the British Academy of Sound Therapy, and is said to make the listener so drowsy, it shouldn’t be played whilst driving. As well as a reduction of a person’s resting heart rate by 35%, it wouldn’t be a bad lullaby to encourage little lids to feel heavy. The song is a tranquil mix of instrumental music and nature sounds- apparently a perfect combination for producing a meditative and calmer state.

Adele Isn’t A Bad Choice Either

Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson from Mindlab made a public playlist of the 10 most relaxing tracks, so we recommend putting these on loop in the nurseries of troubled sleepers! We bet number 8 surprises you.
