Music is an extremely powerful influence in many people’s lives. It is especially important for us spoonies to listen to music, recent studies show. Studies show music reduces stress and anxiety, pain, and improves the immune system! (Read more about it here.) Since all of the side effects listed usually impact a chraintim’s* life on a daily basis, listening to music is especially important.
However, it can be hard to find just the right mix of music to listen to depending on your mood or state of mind. When I am going through a particularly hard time (which usually means my pain is flaring up), listening to music can really improve my mood and how I feel about my situation. But when you are enduring that difficult time, you don’t want to be searching for just the right music and spend time compiling a playlist, right? Well that’s no longer a concern! Here I have compiled a list of my favorite songs to motivate you during tough times. (Click here for the songs all set up in a playlist on YouTube.)
