My Anxiety/Depression Playlist

I occasionally have severe social anxiety. Anxiety so debilitating that I would not be able to leave my house until late at night when most people are sleep. When I got in the car during the day I would cry the entire time until I reached my destination. I thought listening to upbeat music would help ease the anxiety and give me endorphins to help me get through the task at hand, but on occasion it made me more anxious. Since, I have created a depression playlist when I have hard days that motivate me in some way. There are songs on this list from almost every genre. Whether I want to lean in to the thoughts to explore how I feel or think positive there is a song out there to express my mood and that helps me not to feel alone. Enjoy!
