Listen to Stress-Reducing Tunes
Muzak, the term used to describe the monotonous melodies played in elevators and waiting rooms, has been proven to have soothing effects. Additionally, studies have shown that listening to 30 minutes of classical music may produce calming effects equivalent to taking 10 mg of Valium. Along with these calming benefits, music has also been shown to regulate heart rate and blood pressure.
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
