3. Play relaxing tunes to beat stress
Studies have shown listening to music can reduce stress levels, according to a review published in Trends in Cognitive Sciences in 2013. The review of over 400 research papers by McGill University researchers finds listening to relaxing music (as in, tunes with a slow tempo, low pitch and no lyrics) has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety in healthy subjects.
So next time you’re feeling anxious, try mellowing out to some Mozart or smooth jazz. You might just find your mind stops racing.
