10 Great Music Tracks To Relax Your Mind

Taking a break 2 or 3 times a day is a great way to untie the knots of stress in your body and also relax your mind. But some people don't want to meditate or breathe deeply and so for them here are 10 pieces of music shown to reduce stress and relax the mind.

The research was done by Mindlab in the UK for Radox-Spa and they came up with a list of music to relax your mind the most. Their research also showed that some music can be more relaxing than a massage, think about how great doing both at once will be.

The music below is the order that Mindlab came up with in their research to find the 10 most relaxing pieces of music. Of course not everyone will find all ten to their taste. Enjoy!


Marconi Union - Weightless (Official Video)

It's rated the number one relaxing music track by at least a dozen blog posts and articles on the web. Called Weightless the track is 8 minutes long and was created with the help of MindLabs in the UK using EEG and Biofeedback equipment that tuned it to heart rate, brain waves and breathing... I love the track and bought the whole album.

Airstream - Electra

This track titled Electra by the electronic music group Airstream landed at number two on the top ten list of the worlds most relaxing music. This track has more of a background beat than the number one track on this list " Weightless" I find it relaxing and easy to have playing in the back ground but I do lean more toward less of a background beat in the ambient music I listen to. Give it a listen to.

DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chillout Mix) (Best Chillout Music Series)

This track has a kind of upbeat sound that might fit well into the background when you have a group of friends over for a simple dinner or sitting around with some wine and talking about things. The best in the background is more than I like but again I'm not a super fan of a driving beat when I listen to ambient sounds. Check it out it might be just what you're looking for.

Enya - (1988) Watermark - 01 Watermark

Coming in at number 4 on the list of tracks that will relax your mind this cut by Enya has been around for nearly 30 years and has a bit of a dramatic movie background going on. I'd play it in the background if I was staring our the window pondering a question or maybe looking for a line that would fit well in a story I was writing. I think it is the shortest track on this list. Give it a listen see what you think.

Coldplay - Strawberry Swing

I would never have thought of Coldplay's track Strawberry Swing falling into the relax your mind category but as I listen I guess I cn see it. It's good to remember that the tracks on this list were picked because of how they effect your brain waves, heartbeat and breathing so this is one of those cases where you can't judge a book by it's cover so to speak. Give it a listen.

Barcelona - Please Don't Go

This track creeps up on you and I find it quite relaxing and even focusing of my attention. The lyrics are a little on the fluffy side but playing in the background while working on a project would work well for me. Let me know your thoughts
