The holiday swing is well and truly underway. Decorations are up and you may even have your shopping done. One thing is for certain though no matter where you go you are surely hearing Holiday music everywhere. It’s on the radio, on TV, in every store, and every business you visit. For some people this is terrific and puts them in a great mood of holiday cheer. For others though all that holiday cheer may have them thinking more like a holiday Grinch.
Studies have shown that listening to music can do some amazing things like treat insomnia, lower pain and anxiety levels, boost your mood, and even reduce depression.

Well for one thing they seem to start playing earlier and earlier every year and this can cause anxiety as you start to plan your holidays and end of year goals, it can feel like time to do these things is already slipping away.
