Monday now broadcasting from the Bob and Sheri Studios Shares Gary. I got a story year and I would like your thoughts and feelings on we use okay. A group of psychologists have said that listening learning to too much Christmas music is actually very bad for your mental health. Wise that because it's Maudlin while a couple of reasons for starters listening to Christmas songs Makes it difficult to focus on anything other than Christmas ideas whether that's shopping topping decorating or cookie that makes sense doesn't it so it's really distracting and they've found that and this is now. This is an unfortunate name. Dr Linda Blair over the poor thing. Yeah Dr Linda Blair said they. They've actually studied people people who work in retail this time of the year and they find that they have learned tune out the Christmas music. Otherwise they make mistakes and they can't focus On what they're doing because you know at Christmas music is a novelty. It's not ubiquitous well and it's such a trigger for memory it can good good and distracting good and bad it sends you down the road and they've found also that here in the same songs over and over again on repeat he also can cause your sanity to suffer. I would think if it's tight playlist because they're just picking the very favorite Britt songs and you're a clerk and you're there for maybe ten hours a day Christmas time you're hearing here comes Santa Claus US ten times. I the thing. I'm of two minds on on the most known Christmas Song because like I love all those classic Christmas songs but for people that listen to Christmas music starting the day after Halloween which is true for a lot of our listeners music music you can't just listen to those and so you'll find yourself like I'll be driving down the car listening to Christmas music on the radio and it'll be frosty the snowman in and silver bells and Blue Christmas and then and now this one from Vince Gill and it's a song about Grandma's holiday Garland that I've never heard before right right or it'll it'll be by some artists you don't even know and it's attempting to be upbeat and it'll be it Christmas balls those Christmas balls deck in halls with the Christmas balls and you find yourself just GonNa love this but you're you're sucked in because the hooky thing. Yeah I I cannot be in certain types of Christmas music from my home because that would be wrong but I try as hard as I can to not have modal Christmas music because it can see us bumps. Well listen to this now. This is a challenge. This is a challenge for you while you're shopping gene upbeat Christmas store upbeat Christmas songs. People love them right. Jingle Bell Rock rocking around the Christmas I want for Christmas is view. All I want for Christmas is you. They're not Maudlin. They make you feel good but when stores play. Those people rushed through the shopping experience cases cases. You want people to slow down look at the merchandise. You gotta get the little drummer boy. Or all I want for Christmas silent night slows them down because the beat is slower white. It's not as peppy. The tempo the slower the tempo lower the shop Earnhardt uh-huh stores.

Oh now this time of year. Pay attention when you're out in a store. Pay attention to the music. They're playing and see if that what this Study says holds true that you're more likely to hear those Maudlin nostalgic slow holiday classics retail. I like UPTEMPO. Christmas music preferred instrumentals of songs. That I know you know so. It's song that I know an UPTEMPO but I have to really focus on the lyrics because his instrumental bill jazzy adding. That's what I like. That's at Your House but in a store I know they're going to play the instrumental. Low Down Tempo version. Evidently they said they can keep you picking through the merchandise.
