Be Mindful with Music
Winter is one of those seasons that you either love or hate and if it is not your favourite season it can feel like it is never going to end. In fact, while there has not been a lot of research into it to date, it is well known that seasonal affective disorder (SAD), the winter blues or winter depression is real and affects a significant portion of the population.

It is also well known that music is a source of therapy that has positive effects on a range of conditions. Music can be used for relaxation, to lift your mood and help you to cope when external factors are affecting your wellbeing. Music is also a way to focus and become grounded in the present moment.
