Christmas music can hurt your mental health.
A psychologist says Christmas music too early in the season forces people to remember all the things they have to do before the holiday including buying presents, catering parties, organizing travel and all the more stressful chores during Christmas.
According to her, store workers are most at risk for being worn down because hearing the same songs over and over each day make workers struggle to “tune it out”, and they become “unable to focus on anything else.”
And it looks like stores are playing holiday music way before even November even starts. Best Buy has been playing holiday music since October 22!
