5 Songs That Help Calm My Nerves

Drowning out my own thoughts.

5 Songs That Help Calm My Nerves

I've established in previous articles that I'm an anxious mess. My brain likes to argue with me, and that's never a good time for either one of us. One thing that helps me shut my brain up is music. In my phone I have a playlist called 'Calm Down' and it's compiled of a bunch of songs that help me to calm down, let my brain relax and slow my heartbeat to a regular rhythm.

These are some of my "go to" songs on my playlist.

1. Just Be Held- Casting Crowns

My mom introduced me to this song a few months back when I told her I was having a particularly bad week. I love this song so much and it really helps. It really reminds me to cast my cares on God and to just let him take the reigns.

2. The Sound of Silence-Disturbed

To be honest, I'm not really sure why this song helps. Maybe it's the lead singers voice, maybe its the solemn melody and overall idea of the sound of silence in general.

3. Oceans- Hillsong UNITED

I find it really ironic that I find this song soothing since the ocean generally scares me silly, but I find the lyrics so comforting. "my soul will rest in your embrace, for I am yours, and you are mine." call me crazy but those lyrics make me feel very safe and comforted.

4. Boldly I Approach- Rend Collective

I couldn't not include this song. It serves the double purpose of calming my nerves, and reminding me to be bold in all that I do. It's become a quick favorite, and the inspiration of my (not yet done) first tattoo. This song probably should have been number one on my list because it is always the first one I listen to when I'm not feeling like myself.

5. Rebirthing-Skillet

I'll admit, this is not a mellow song, it does not have a calming melody, but it illustrates how I feel when anxiety is consuming my entire head. This is sort of my "let it out" song. This song reminds me of breaking out of your own head, and that's a really good image for me.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
