Day 4 of the 25 songs, 25 Days challenge is “A song that calms you down.”
Being someone who suffers with anxiety and panic attacks having a song that would calm me down would be great. Unfortunately, such a beast does not exist.
I am very sensitive to music. Music moves me, evoking all sorts of emotions – tears, anger, heartbreak, joy, elation. What this musical sensitivity means for me is that once I’m in a state of anxiety music will, more often than not, further intensify my anxiety.
What I have found that does help is this sound – rain on a canvas tent. I find it very soothing and have spent many hours listening to this track.
What do you think? Soothing?
