Did you read the post about dredging up the memories of your cancer treatment and all the good it can do? Think it was a load of bollocks?
Well, this is for you.
Use Music to Remember
Opening the floodgates of cancer memories is emotionally exhausting. Remembering those moments and the consequent feelings can often leave you wallowing in negative thoughts. Ultimately, spending your days dwelling on your death-defying times might not be the most fruitful. A kinder way to approach this is through music.
Mission Remission HQ Anthems
So we've collated a few songs that connect to our own feelings. That help distract from fear and anxiety, but also help the inconsequential woes of life fall away.
Here's the eclectic five that started it all off:
- My Love Took me Down to the River To Silence Me – Little Green Cars
- Shout – Tears for Fears
- Marry You – Bruno Mars
- Defying Gravity – Wicked Musical
- My Life – Billy Joel
Of course, we're not saying listening to Billy Joel, or musical power ballads is going to fast track happiness; many might well prefer their eyes pulled out to listening to the tones of Bruno Mars. But if you do have a penchant for the eclectic, you can find the full Mission Remission Playlist on Spotify.
And even better, it's an open list, so you can add to it, contributing songs that make you think: 'I can do this!'
If you don't use Spotify, feel free to share some ideas in the comment section below and I'll add them so others can enjoy too.
