Keep Calm and Listen to Music

Keep calm and carry on? How about keep calm and listen to music?

Research reported in HEART, a British medical publication, shows that calming music causes the heart rate and breathing to slow down. This often leads to a relaxation response.  Slower breathing also relates to lower blood pressure.

The next time you need to relax, consider listening to some slow music and see if you notice your breathing and heart rate decrease.
