Listening to music can improve our mental health and reduce anxiety, according to a meta analysis of hundreds of studies. We also use songs to reflect on changes in our lives, the world, and even the seasons.

The holidays are over, we’re back to work, and winter is here. It can be a challenging season for our mental health — it’s not as easy to exercise, which is vital to our overall well being, and many of us deal with some form of seasonal affective disorder. To give you something to play and boost your mood as you settle into the season, we compiled this “Winter Warmup” playlist. Enjoy!
