Christmas, Stress, Music

Yes Christmas is just around the corner! The season for a plethora of decorations, inundation of Christmas songs everywhere and the hawds of people flocking to the shops is upon us. But don’t let the stress of finishing the school year, finishing work, getting Christmas organised, getting presents and so on get to you.

Just take 5-10 minutes to do some deep breathing and listen to your favourite tune. It can be while your driving, hanging out the washing or eating your breakfast but just 5-10 minutes a day has been shown to reduce your stress levels by half. Adding your favourite tune will tap into your nervous system and endocrine system and enable you to calm and settle some of the tension and stress.

So don’t let it Christmas stress get to you, just breath and listen!
