You may well have gotten over yesterday's so-called 'Blue Monday', but January is a stressful month for many people.

The good news is that there's a whole playlist of so-called 'relaxing' songs waiting to chill you out.

A survey conducted by meditation app Beeja Meditation has revealed what they claim to be the 'World's Favourite Relaxing Songs'. They analysed a small number of Spotify playlists to figure out the tracks and compositions that made the most appearances on 'meditation' and 'relaxation' playlists.

Sam Smith nabbed the top spot in the 'Songs You Can Sing Along To' category and also features heavily in the top 10, along with Ed Sheeran and James Arthur.

Meanwhile, Benny Bernstein's 'The Conscious Journey' took the top spot in the instrumental category. (If you've heard that name before, it may have been when Spotify were forced to publicly deny that he was amongst the 'fake musicians' they had created to allegedly avoid paying royalties to labels.)

It's far from a scientific study, but our blood pressure would be definitely raised by some of these songs.
