German

If the result of the referendum has left you feeling a little fraught, never fear – German scientists at Ruhr university may be able to help.  They found out that listening to the music of Mozart and Strauss can significantly lower blood pressure and heart rates.  By contrast, pop music and even silence have a much-reduced calming effect.  I suspect our music groups could have told us that!  So – make a nice English cuppa, put on some music, keep calm and carry on.  ‘Bleib ruhig und weitergehen!’
