For some people who have to travel by plane, Valium, listening to babbling brook soundscapes or finding a happy place just aren't enough to quell fears of flying. If you're one of those people, then Spotify has a new playlist for you: Calming Music to Fly to. In a study commissioned by the prolific music streaming service, anxiety psychologist Becky Spelman found that music with a low bpm, preferably 60 bpm paired with slow, rhythmic breathing, is a powerful combo for calming rattled nerves.
While some songs make more sense (Someone Like You by Adele) than others (Space Oddity by David Bowie) and hit all over the musical spectrum (Enya? Red Hot Chili Peppers?), they're scientifically proven to chill you out.
Here's the full playlist:
Someone Like You – Adele
