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.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
