For several years, I have used music to help me with defying the challenges of many aspects of life. A particular type of musical sound helps me to laser focus when I’m writing for example, other sounds do the opposite.
The Sound of The Universe
There has long been some debate around in the music industry that 432 hertz music is, or is not, the frequency of the universe. Some argue that 432 hertz contributes to amazing health and healing properties, others say that’s not true.
True or not, search for and listen to some 432 hertz music on YouTube
and you will find some remarkable recordings that can calm the senses on the most blustery day.
The Most Relaxing Music Ever
According to a study by Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson, the most relaxing song in the world is Weightless, by ambient band Marconi Union. Weightless was produced by the band in collaboration with the British Academy of Sound Therapy.
The song makes use of musical principles that have been shown to have a calming effect. By combining these elements in the way Marconi Union have, created what has been labeled, “the perfect relaxing song”. Weightless contains a sustaining rhythm that starts at 60 beats per minute and gradually slows to around 50. While listening, your heart rate will gradually match the beat of the music.
Many songs were evaluated and found to relax listeners, but Weightless stood out. Listening to that one song resulted in a remarkable 65 percent reduction in listeners’ overall anxiety, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates. Given the current circumstances in the world, this can only be a good thing; right? So rather than discuss this further, I will leave it to you to decide.

Hi Steve. Yes, I have often noticed how different music styles and sounds effected my mood but, I didn’t realise there was a science to it. Truly amazing.
I’d play different songs to calm or, energise myself depending on my mood.
Thank you kindly for sharing. Have a class day.
Hi Ger. I’ve been using music to calm or energize my senses for a long while. I think the debate about 432 hertz is neither here nor there. If it works and helps, use it 🙂 Different music for different activities…. loud music sometimes goes with me on mountain bike rides, calming music without lyrics helps me write. S
