Music for airports was recommended in one of the Oreilly Mind Hacks books (which i don't hvae in front of me)

A great read for this is "Avoid Cognitive Distortions (Hack 58)" in O'Reilly's "Mind Performance Hacks" book:

There's too much to quote here, but the basic premise is:

Learn to avoid 15 mental mistakes that distort your emotions and further distort your thinking
