Music for an Anxious Mind

One of my favourites things to do is listen to music, so it didn’t take me very long to realize it helped my anxiety. Usually, it falls into a few different categories for me; mellow music that gives off a calm vibe, or classic sing-along songs that almost everyone knows for when I’m out in my car and want a distraction. I decided I’d make a playlist of songs to share that I usually go to when I want to feel calmer. Not everybody has the same taste in music so if mine doesn’t help/suit you, I definitely recommend making one of your own.

My name is Holly, I’m nineteen years old and 4 years ago I began having all of the signs of agoraphobia. Nobody really understands why or how it began, including myself... I had a cold and missed a couple of days of school and when I went to go back my life felt fully changed. Well not only felt, but it was. I was soon after diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and social anxiety which had given me a pretty mild case of agoraphobia. At the time I would not have considered it mild, but after multiple years I’ve realized my agoraphobia at that time was one of the easier times... the only reason it was harder was because I had absolutely no coping mechanisms, no distractions, I didn’t know how to help myself. I leaned on my friends so much, they ended up with at least half of my stress, but now 3 years later, I have learned so many coping mechanisms, I’ve learned so much about how the brain works and communicates when it comes to mental disorders... I’ve gotten much better dealing with my illness without having to lean on anybody but myself. This is such a incredibly small part of my story and the journey I’ve been on so if you’re wanting information or help or even just to see if my story resembles yours or somebody’s you love, check back for my blog posts or check out my Instagram that I’ll have linked below! I’m always happy to answer questions, or give advice or even just some info so if you want somebody to talk to, feel free to go to the contact section and send me an email! I hope I can help in anyway, Holly
