#FeistyMusic: A Calming Playlist

Hello again, feisty friends!

This week I am starting another series: #FeistyMusic! I'm going to be posting many music-related posts in the future, so I wanted to go ahead and make it a category!

Music has been such a huge part of my life for as long as I could remember. Whether I was performing in musicals, singing in the chorus, or just listening to jams in my headphones, music has always been such an important part of my life.

Here's a low quality photo of me performing at my high school's talent show in 2013.  I honestly can't remember what I sang, but I do know I was overly dramatic doing so!

Music is very powerful. It has the power to make you happy, sad, angry, and even calm. That's one of my favorite parts of music: it can calm my anxiety. 

If you have ever met me, you know I am very high energy person who tends to get anxious very quickly. I will definitely write another day about what makes me anxious. Well, when I am dealing with anxiety, I like to listen to certain musicians and songs that will help me breathe and find my happy place.

Here's a very comical photo of me performing in Trinity Episcopal's rendition of Smokey Joe's Cafe back in 2012. Love you and miss you, Anne Carter!! :) thanks to Kyle Van De Kamp for the photo!

Today, I wanted to keep the post simple and sweet and just present to you a playlist of some of the music that I listen to when I'm feeling anxious. It may not be able to stop whatever's causing you anxiety, but I hope it will allow you to breathe and enjoy something for a little bit :) 

I hope you enjoy :)

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What music do you all listen to when you are stressed out? I would love suggestions... I'm constantly looking for new musicians that will destress my life. Comment it below or feel free to tweet/message me!

Love y'all so much! I'll be back here next week with something a little more wordy... This week has been a little cray cray in a good way :) 

P.S. I found out this week that I am going to be working as a PR Rep for Elon's student run newspaper, The Pendulum! I would really appreciate it if you would check out their website and their social media! Also, I've been working very closely with The Edge Magazine, so I would love it if you would check out their Instagram and Twitter as well! Thanks so much <3 Y'all rock my world!

So excited for this opportunity to work with The Pendulum and explore my love of communications!
