855: This One Song Can Reduce Stress By 65 Percent

When I meditate, often times I will practice with music playing in the background.  Invariably, the soothing tones will enhance my session.  It got me to thinking though, does music sooth people who are not meditating?  I think we all know on some level it can.  Studies have definitely proven it.  There is even a quote..." Music hath charms to sooth the savage breast" (Yup, breast, not beast...I looked it up).  Today I share an article with you that will help you understand a certain song that reduces stress by 65%.
