Try: Making a Playlist

make a playlist

I find that getting immersed in a project helps switch my mind out of the overthinking mode and into a feeling of flow.  My wish: that it were possible to attach cover art to the music I'm putting together to create a mood, the way we used to back in the 80s/90s. If that were easy to do on Spotify or Apple Music, I'd recommend that you create art on an app called LogoScopic. That's fun to do anyway, why not? It gets you creating.

If you don't feel like making a playlist, fear not. You could give this one a tryIt's the OFFICIAL Beautiful Voyager playlist. I'm psyched about it.

If this experiment works for you, hit the heart to let others know they should give it a try!

Try to: Seek Out Art

Nearly every book about meditation, mindfulness, and anxiety says the same thing: Bear in mind that you're not alone. It's a hard thing to feel, though. Does reading these words on the page from me, or even knowing I've felt some of the things you have, really make you feel less alone?  This is where art like music, reading, or theater help (at least, those are the things that help me--everyone is different). In the past, I've pushed them down the priority list. Putting this on the list is a way of saying: for me, art is key to turning down the volume knob on anxiety.
