I get it, Christmas is stressful for Widows – I know because I’m a widow just like you. One stress buster I use is listening to Christmas jazz or other mellow music for 30 minutes as it can trigger the release of positive emotions and memories.
Crooning along to “Deck the Halls”, “Jingle Bells” and other holiday songs lifts your mood. Studies show that singing can also boost mental sharpness, increase happiness and reduce anxiety.
It’s more than just beautiful and traditional; the latest studies show your favorite Christmas music can cut your stress and relieve your pain.
Whether it made you sing, hum or just smile, chances are good it will give you a much needed boost in the midst of this hectic holiday season.
Believe it or not, Christmas carols can help destress the season. Singing regulates breathing patterns, allowing your lungs to take in more energizing oxygen and boost your immunity.
