Looking forward to hearing some of your favorite holiday music? You might be mentally ill - according to science.
In this report from the Business Insider they say a study found:
At first, holiday music may spark nostalgia and get you in the holiday spirit. But hearing "Jingle Bells" for the millionth time can lead to annoyance, boredom, and even distress, researchers say.
So why exactly is that how you might respond later in the holiday season?
They go on to say that it's because your brain becomes oversaturated. That can lead to a negative response. It also means that instead of this music helping with stress it may actually increase it.
Think about that next time you get in the holiday spirt well before Thanksgiving has even begun.
