Post on Playlists!

Hello lovelies! Happy Friday! Today I thought I would kick off the weekend by writing a post about playlists. When it comes to fighting through anxiety, depression, and an eating disorder, music has become my saving grace. On my iphone, I created various playlists for certain events, circumstances, and how I am feeling. The three playlists of mine that I want to share with you today include my Recovery Playlist, Calm |Sleep Playlist, and My Favorites Playlist-just for fun! Music can be such a great tool to have and can almost always lift my spirits when I am in a funk.

Recovery Playlist – this is a very important playlist for me. I created this while I was in a partial treatment program for my eating disorder because music is a great way to express yourself…it is very relatable. I found that after a long day of re-feeding and working hard in therapy, it would help me to come home and listen to music to help calm myself and wind down for the day. Music that mimicked what I was going through and that was inspirational and mellow I found the most helpful. There were days, however, that I came home stressed and angry and just needed to listen to something more intense-and that is okay too! Below is a list of some of my favorite music for going through the ups and downs of the recovery process.

1. Beautiful -Christina Aguilera

Calm |Sleep Playlist – One year for Christmas my mother bought me a CD of all instrumental music that is supposed to support positive thinking and calmness. I listen to this all of the time whenever I feel myself panic or if I am REALLY stressed out, anxious, or upset. It also helps me to sleep at night, as well! The music is so nice and relaxing- a life saver!
