Summer Vibes: A Mental Health Playlist

Talkspace Summer Mental Health Playlist

Music does powerful things to our brains, such as reducing our anxiety and changing how we perceive others based on the song we’re listening to. Whatever emotion we’re feeling, there’s music to match. It’s an overwhelmingly positive experience for our mental wellbeing, no matter the emotion of the music.

Summertime is when we’re expected to bask in the warmth and relaxation of the summer sun. Surprisingly, Seasonal Affective Disorder can make an appearance in summer as well. This can lead to higher incidences of depression, anxiety, and a disruption of sleep cycles. If you deal with mental illness during the summer, it can be a drag to see your friends and others having a blast without you.

Talkspace has your back, and we want you to know you’re not alone when it comes to your mental health! Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Smell the beachy breeze, feel the sand between your toes, and enjoy the call of the seagulls before they steal your imaginary ice cream.
