Richard Blonna, Ed.D, a certified coach, counsellor and health education specialist iterates that allowing your body to fully relax puts it into a condition that is ‘incompatible with stress’. Just 20 minutes of a relaxed state two or three times a week can show marked improvements when combating stress.

A study on ‘The Effect of Music on the Human Stress Response’, found music to be the most effective method of relaxation versus other popular approaches, such as recordings of nature or even silence. The study also concluded that listening to music prior to stressful situations resulted in the level of stress experienced would be lower and a quicker recovery from stress in the nervous system.12232871_1057450004267640_6793902551092632943_o

Music has an unparalleled connection to our emotions, and classical music that has a slow tempo, gentle contours and strings can help reduce stress by lowering blood pressure and slowing the heart rate. The engaging power of music can captivate our attentio
n and distract our minds. Amy Bellows, PhD recommends both New Age and Classical music as being the most effective and calming genres when it comes to lowering stress levels.
