8 Songs That Have Helped Me Cope With My Anxiety
The Odyssey Online

When I have an anxiety attack, there's only certain music that I can listen to. It has to have a beat that I find relaxing. I've tried listening to upbeat pop music before (e.g. today's top hits), and I've realized that when I'm already anxious, it just makes me feel more anxious. These are my favorite songs to listen to when I am feeling anxious. I hope that my list could potentially help someone else find peace in their anxiety.

1. Gravity by John Mayer

I love the tune to this song. Like I said, I need music that has a relaxing sound. It also helps that I love John Mayer.

2. In Christ Alone by Anthem Lights

This song is extremely helpful for me when I have an anxiety attack. It helps me feel closer to God and to feel like I'm not alone.

3. You Can Be All Kinds Of Emotional by The Lone Bellow

The Lone Bellow is another one of my favorite artists, and I love all their music, but this song is my favorite of theirs. It's a very peaceful song and it's so relaxing to listen to.

4. Malibu by Miley Cyrus

This song is so good. What I love about it is how positive it is. It does have a change of beat, but I still find it relaxing. Whenever I hear it, I imagine myself on a beach, and that's usually where I go in my mind when I have an anxiety attack.

5. My Life by Best Coast

Best Coast is my favorite artist to listen to, especially when I'm feeling anxious. All of Best Coast's songs are known for their beachy-sound.

6. How They Want Me To Be by Best Coast

Another one of my favorites by Best Coast. It always makes me think of looking out at the ocean, and makes me feel so at peace.

7. If I Loved You by Delta Rae

This song has sad lyrics, but this song is another one that I listen to when I'm feeling anxious. I found Delta Rae when I was searching for new music a while back, and I fell in love with this song. It has a folk sound that I like, and I find it relaxing.

8. Near To You by A Fine Frenzy

What I love about this song is how powerful the lyrics are. The song shows the hard work of healing after one relationship ends, and then moving on, cautiously, into a new relationship. It's relatable and the piano tune is beautiful.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
