Using Upbeat Music to Feel Better

It can be easy to put on music that matches your mood when you’re not feeling your best. The best way to describe it is by thinking of the phrase “misery loves company,” or that having something (or someone) that feels just as bad as you are makes you feel slightly less alone.

Of course journaling helped a little, but I eventually turned to what has never failed me when I’m down: music.

Wasted Time: Take a Break!

Finding Motivation For Your Passions

The past few months, I haven’t given any time to writing music, which is something I used to be very passionate about. Music used to be a big coping mechanism for me for dealing with my anxiety. Any negative emotions I felt could easily be expressed through writing a song.
