From the article I just read, it is clear that listening to techno music can have a positive effect on depression and mental health. As someone who has suffered from depression in the past, I can attest to the power of music to help me get through it. Music has always been a source of comfort for me, and I find that listening to certain types of music can make me feel better. Techno music is definitely one of those genres that can have a calming, uplifting effect on me. It’s great to hear that it can also help with depression, as it’s always nice to have another tool in your toolbox to help with mental health issues.
