My Anxiety Playlist

Anxiety is a pervasive issue for many individuals. The unsettling feeling of something being wrong, even when everything is seemingly fine, can leave a person feeling lost, scared, or apathetic. Although far from a cure, sometimes listening to music can help with feelings of anxiety. Some songs have a way of perfectly describing the way you’re feeling, or inspiring you to change your way of thinking.
