A few weeks ago I shared a post about songs that can lull anxiety. And why.

To refresh, this is the top ten list as compiled by a bunch of boffins from the British Academy of Sound Therapy:

  • 1. Weightless
  • 2. Electra (Airstream)
  • 3. Mellomaniac (DJ Shah – Chill Out Mix)
  • 4. Watermark (Enya)
  • 5. Strawberry Swing (Coldplay)
  • 6. Please Don’t Go (Barcelona)
  • 7. Pure Shores (All Saints)
  • 8. Someone Like You (Adele)
  • 9. Canzonetta Sull’aria (Mozart)
  • 10. We Can Fly (Café Del Mar).

You lot had a bit to say on the matter and shared your Music for Quietening An Agitated Soul. I like your work:

  • Kim – the soundtrack to The Gladiator.
  • Leonie – Soundtracks always help me unwind. The Deception one (specifically the main theme, Time) has been a recent favourite. Yoga-style music also works.
  • Dre – Music in other languages is helpful, too, because I don’t have to focus on word meaning, just sounds. Andrew Bird, Ani Choying Drolma, Hill Country blues, and old school Brazilian are my go-to’s. I also adore the soundtrack from Amelie.
  • Kristine – One of my favourite songs to combat anxiety is An Ending (Ascent) by Brian Eno. Also Codex by Radiohead.
  • Jesse – Classical music but especially Mozart calms and relaxes me, it also works for my little girl.
  • Karina – Baba Hanuman by Krishna Das is played at night to help my children wind down for sleep…they love it as much as I do!
  • Steph – Ludovico Einaudi – beautiful piano (listen to the song Two Trees).
  • Jeskimo Pace – Private Road by Bent always puts me in a sweet chilled out mood. Or, To Be Alone With You – Sufjan Stevens.

 A stack of new options for us all to trial!
