Dr Anney Varghese, UK-based Consultant Psychiatrist and women’s health expert, states “Music stimulates dopamine production by activating the reward system of the brain, which plays a key role in setting a good mood. You know what music you like and there is nothing like being your own DJ dancing to your favourite party or Christmas tune to get you in the right mood.” 

We do love playing Christmas music all year round!
