Find a soundtrack that accompanies the way you feel or how you want to feel.
Music always finds a way to:
- find the best words to express how I feel
- provide the perfect music to accommodate or change my mood
- calm me when I’m feeling depressed or have a panic attack
- brings me back to happy or sad times in my life with nostalgic lyrics
- supports my mind when I need to gather my thoughts together.
Without music, I don’t know what I would do.
The last couple of days, I’ve been putting together two playlists.
One called “I need a break”. Music for those times when I need a break! Music for those times when I need background music for my thoughts. I use this soundtrack when there’s a million things going in my mind and I need to stop those thoughts to understand what they mean. I also can use this soundtrack if I had a panic attack and need some music to calm me down.
The other called “Feel Good”. It’s basically music to boost my mood and create that instant feeling of pure joy. When I feel as if negative thoughts and feelings are beginning to drag me down, I use this playlist to pull me up. Some of the music are songs that remind of great moments from my past. Its those types of songs that give you so much joy as soon as it starts playing. Also, it’s those types of songs that you know every word and sing at the top of your lungs to. The other songs are the types of songs that you can just start dancing like nobody is watching.
The “Feel Good” soundtrack provides songs that remind me of who I am. There are so many songs that are nostalgic and remind me of those times when I felt like myself.
Find music that remind you of who you are. Find background music that helps you understand your thoughts.
