Have you ever noticed that the Christmas season is more stressful than it is peaceful? From Christmas shopping to holiday parties, there never seems to be enough time to fit everything in. This year I have found a new way to deal with my holiday stress: listening to classical music.
I first started listening to classical music as a way to relax and get rid of my stress from preparing for finals at the end of the semester. As I was listening to classical music, I thought about how calming it was and decided I want to make a blog about how classical music can be an outlet for people who are stressed or anxious. The relaxing power of classical music has not been studied very much, but there is evidence that shows that listening to Mozart does increase your IQ score (Rauscher et al., 1993). Other studies show that listening to classical music can reduce stress and anxiety (Kokkinakis, 2007).

The holidays are coming up, and that means gift-giving, family gatherings, and hectic shopping. The holiday season can be a time of great joy, but it can also be a time of stress and anxiety. One way to deal with the tension is through classical music. Whether you’re searching for last-minute gifts at the mall or preparing a holiday meal, classical music can make the experience more enjoyable.
One thing that makes the holidays so stressful is the pressure to buy the perfect gift for your loved ones. This year, however, try listening to classical music while you shop. It will help you relax and focus on what really matters: spending time with your family this holiday season.
Music has a calming effect on both the mind and body. Classical music has an even stronger effect than other genres of music because it has a slower pace and uses complex harmonies that trigger chemical reactions in the brain to create feelings of calmness. If you want to avoid feeling overwhelmed by long lines at stores this season, try listening to some classical music in your car or on your headphones as you wait in line for those last-minute gifts.
The music you listen to can also impact your enjoyment of cooking and baking during the holidays. Classical music helps increase focus
I have been working on my blog for a few months now. I’ve written some posts, but I haven’t yet published anything.
I’m interested in music and how it can be good for the soul (or mind). I think that it can be a great outlet to stress and anxiety, which is why I want to write about it.
I want to help others by sharing my knowledge on this topic. It’s a niche topic, and there aren’t many people who write about this kind of music on the Internet.
I’d like to get some feedback on my blog posts before I publish them. Thank you!

With cooking, cleaning, shopping and decorating it’s no wonder many people feel overwhelmed this time of year.

It’s that time of year again! The holidays are right around the corner, and with them come lots of stress. Shopping for the perfect gift, cooking a big dinner for the entire family, or trying to keep kids entertained during winter break can take a toll on the best of us. However you spend your holiday season, there is one thing that can help make it a little more relaxing: classical music!
Don’t believe me? There have been numerous studies about how listening to classical music can reduce stress. In 2009 researchers at Stanford found that listening to classical music reduces anxiety in patients before and after surgery. Other studies have shown that listening to classical music helps improve focus during work.
Classical music has been shown to be particularly effective at reducing pain and stress in pregnant women. One study done in 2011 showed that women who listened to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata before their baby was born were less stressed during labor than those who didn’t listen to music. Listening to classical music also reduced their pain levels, which meant they were less likely to use pain medication during labor.
So this holiday season, instead of reaching for another glass of eggnog or a candy cane when you are stressed out try putting on some
You might be feeling some stress and anxiety during this holiday season. It’s hard to get over the holiday blues, but fortunately our good friend classical music is here to help you through it. We have compiled a list of pieces for your listening pleasure.
The first piece is Tchaikovsky’s “December” from his Seasons. The piano in this piece reflects the cold winter weather. The qualities that make up this piece include the emotion of sadness, the liveliness of excitement, and a sense of peace.
The second piece is Vivaldi’s “Winter” from his Four Seasons. This piece begins with a slow tempo and gradually speeds up as it goes on, just like how people go through different stages of excitement when they’re waiting for Christmas.
