The combination of warmer temperatures and the prospect of a summer holiday makes this time of year the perfect opportunity to take a moment, reset and recuperate. Find yourself a ‘happy place’ – the morning sun, a gentle arvo breeze, somewhere near the water… and put your earphones in to some easy listening tunes.

The benefits of music are well studied, but it’s easy to forget just how powerful it can be in helping the mind to relax and forget about the chaos of life for a little while.

Research suggests that brain functioning may be changed through listening to music, to a similar extent as through the use of medication. Listening to slower music can help synchronise the brain to the beat, causing alpha brainwaves, which are present when we are relaxed and conscious.

Music can also help us to explore our emotions, making it a useful tool in mediation, self-reflection, and keeping the mind present.

Also, are you sick of counting sheep to no avail? Music has been shown to be a legitimate snooze inducer. Listening to the right music (60-80 BPM) before bedtime can not only help you drift off to sleep, but it can also help keep you asleep throughout the night. And, it turns out Ed Sheeran is on the A-Team when it comes to getting some shut-eye, with Spotify finding that the English crooner is one of the most popular artists their listeners choose to snooze too.

Want to chill out? We teamed up with Spotify to design a calming playlist for nib customers this summer.
