The song above is called Weightless by Marconi Union, an English ambient music group. They have created what scientists are calling the most relaxing song ever recorded. And no doubt, it is very soothing.
I’ll start and end with this same question: “What relaxes you?”
One of my favorite ways to unwind is by listening to baseball on the radio. There is something perfectly soothing about the description of my favorite sport on the radio. On TV, I find baseball to be always waiting for that climactic moment (that only occasionally arrives), but on the radio, it is like talking with a friend. I know friends who paint, read, write, fish, hike and play music to relax
If you haven’t figured out what brings you relaxation, you really should. Our ability to unwind is important to help us eliminate stress, sleep better, have lower cholesterol and be more productive during the day. If unwinding is hard for you, pick something, anything and give it a shot. Something physical is a good one, because of the calming effects it brings throughout the day.
So, the question is… “what do you do to relax?”
