Chronic stress is one of the biggest health challenges we face in the industrialized, high-tech modern world. In terms of stress management, putting some time into planning your life according to what’s important for you and avoiding unnesseccary “noise” is of course high up on the list of things to do. For many, including myself, listening to music can also be great way to shut off and relax…
Regardless of whether you look at Christmas as the best holiday of the year or the most stressful and tiring one, the holidays are for many synonymous with time off work and relaxation in between gift wrapping and food preparation. Here are some great songs that can help you shut down and take the edge off. Mostly “gentle pop” and chill-out music for this list; no christmas carols if that was what you came for. Merry Christmas!
Tides by Daniel Licht
My favorite song from the TV show Dexter. Check out the rest of Daniel Licht’s songs on soundcloud if you like those types of tunes.

Old song from a Norwegian band.
