5 Songs That Make Me Forget About My Anxiety

"(music) gets them to think about things that do not matter..."

5 Songs That Make Me Forget About My Anxiety

Before beginning, I'd like to say that music is not a remedy for anxiety or panic attacks, though it can be a good tactic as it is a distraction to the person (in this case, me) and gets them to think about things that do not matter and keeps them grounded into reality. If music does not seem to work, other methods include memorizing useless facts, birthdays, and even addresses and repeating them during a panic attack.

1. "DaNcing in a RoOm" By EZI

In this song, EZI goes into details about how nothing is going right, but that is okay because she's "dancing in the middle of the room" by herself. Not only do I think the situation can be quite similar to what leads me to have a panic attack, but the fast past beat and uplifting lyrics remind me that everything will be okay.

2. "Let 'Em Say" By Lizzo and Caroline Smith

This song was written in celebration of achieving one's dreams despite what others say or said in the past. Much like "DaNcing in a RoOm" this song is fast past and upbeat. This song shows that those doubts in the back of my mind and fear that nothing will work out is just over thinking and just reminds me that the future is bright.

3. "Spaceship" By Kesha

Kesha seems to be wanting to get away from everyone around her as they seem to be quite negative to her. This leads to her repeating the lyric "I don't really care if you believe...". In her case, Kesha is dismissing everyone who does not believe in her and that is honestly something we should all do.

4. "Flaming Hot Cheetos" By Clairo

Though this song is quite slow, I have seen it as a great distraction due to not only the title being quite bizarre as it does not match the song at all, but Clairo also has a unique and never heard before style. I can only describe this as a song that you wouldn't play when your friend hands you the aux, but you definitely blast when home alone.

5. "Magic In The Hamptons" By Social House and Lil Yatchy

This is another song that does not really have to do with getting over something but is a good distraction due to the catchy beat and the vibes it radiates. As soon as I listen to it, I feel as though it's summer twenty-four seven and I am automatically in a better mood.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
