Reducing Stress and Anxiety

-by Kevin

The group that created the song “Weightless,” Marconi Union, did so in collaboration with sound therapists. Its carefully arranged harmonies, rhythms, and bass lines help slow a listener’s heart rate, reduce blood pressure and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. (You can find a link to the song below…)

In other words, according to all those smart people, listening to the song calms you and helps reduce stress.

And, I think it’s cool that science can help reduce our stress and anxiety. But followers of Christ have had the cure for over 2,000 years!

God’s Spirit lives in us when we live for Christ, and His “…is not a spirit of fear (or anxiety), but of power, and of love, and a sound mind.”

So gather all of your stressors and your worries, and take them to Jesus. Fill your heart and mind with His words- let them soothe your soul, calm your spirit, and give power to your day…

And if something like this song also helps, great! But remember, let the “peace of God, which transcends all understanding… guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:7
