Start writing a post

Every day, more and more people are being diagnosed with mental illnesses and diseases and have a hard time coping with them. One of the many popular ones today include anxiety.

It is definitely not easy to live with and can be hard to control, but as someone who has anxiety issues, I can tell you that there are ways to calm down after having a panic episode. Normally during or after a panic attack, I like to take my mind off of the present and try to calm myself down.

One way I do that is by surrendering myself to music. Listening to music almost always helps me calm down and I thought I'd share a good bit of songs that I like to listen to when I am anxious.

Honestly most of the songs I listen to come from only a few bands. My favorite happening to be PVRIS (pronounced Paris). All of the songs they write hold deep meaning and help me take my mind off of the things that stress me out. So here are a few of my favorite songs I listen to by this band.

1. "Winter" by PVRIS

2. "Half" by PVRIS

3. "Walk Alone" by PVRIS

4. "What's Wrong" by PVRIS

And sometimes you don't need lyrics to help calm you down as they can be distracting sometimes. Because of this, I like to listen to many different compositions" by different composers to keep my dark thoughts at bay.

5. "Time" by Hans Simmer

6. "Take Flight" by Lindsey Sterling

7. "Fyrsta" by Olafur Arnolds

8. "Beyond This Moment" by Patrick O'Hearn

9. "Near Light" by Olafur Arnolds

10. "Only The Winds" by Olafur Arnolds

12. "The Arena" by Lindsey Sterling

13. "TwentyTwoFourteen" by The Album Leaf

14. "Crystalline" by Lights & Motion

15. "I Could Hear Water At The Edge Of all Things" by Hammock

Those are some of my favorite compositions to listen to. The rest of the list is filled with random songs that have impacted me while dealing with my anxiety. Some songs are inspirational, some are sad and express what I'm feeling at the moment, some are more upbeat and poppy, and some are hopeful and relatable.

16. "Take On The World" by You Me At Six

17. "If I Get High" by Nothing But Thieves

18. "Graveyard Whistling" by Nothing But Thieves

I hope you enjoy this list of songs I created and I hope it helps a lot of people with their anxiety issues. The most important thing to remember is to stay in a healthy state of mind and never hesitate to reach out to someone if you are drowning in your own thoughts.

As hard as that is, I at least hope that some of you can cope by listening to music. Enjoy.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
