Christmas Songs Played on a Loop Can be Bad for Mental Health


From Providr: Many retail stores have already begun rolling out Christmas decorations and playing Christmas music. A clinical psychologist recently warned that playing Christmas music on a loop can actually have a negative effect on people’s mental health.

“Not only do stores manage to swiftly clear out any evidence Halloween even happened but many stores roll out the Christmas decorations by November 1st—and with decorations comes that dreaded Christmas music. If you work in a shop and already feel like Christmas songs are getting to you, you could be right.

Clinical psychologist and author Linda Blair told Sky News that listening to all that Christmas music could actually be bad for your mental state. A shop playing the same Christmas music on a loop for two months straight can actually have a negative effect on its workers, Blair says in the interview.”
