Music and writing are definitely two things that help me when I am feeling extremely overwhelmed with my emotions. Listening to different musical genres can help me express and get out different things I need to get out. For example, I may listen to a very angry rap song that I know all the lyrics to if I am feeling mad, or a very sappy love song if I am feeling sad or heartbroken. In addition, I often like to write because it provides me with an outlet to both express my innermost thoughts and a place to be most creative. Through writing, I can make up the silliest stories that don’t necessarily have to make any sense just as a way to distract my mind. Thanks for sharing what helps you guys and reminding me of these tools that I have used before!
