Andrew McCluskey's insight:

Nursing - stressful?  

 

Apparently if you compare nurses who sit in a chair for 30 minutes just resting, with nurses who listen to music for 30 minutes during their shift - the music group has significantly lower levels of cortisol, blood pressure, heart rate and all the other stress related symptoms.  Nice!
