With everything the world is going through at the moment, you might be more prone to feeling a little anxious or gloomy. It’s not the best feeling to have, but we must always remind ourselves that feeling the negative emotions is okay. They may be negative, but they’re not always bad.

Instead of avoiding these unwanted feelings, acknowledge them and let them inform you of what needs to be addressed because as explained on Psychology Today, more often than not, these emotions are meant to signal that something might be wrong.

Now that you’ve faced them head on, you’ll feel slightly lighter and ready to let them pass. To help you feel a little better, listen to some tunes that will make you feel more reassured and calm. Music is healing, as they say.

We asked our followers for their go-to songs whenever they’re feeling uneasy or down, in case you need new music recos. Don’t worry—from OPM, Broadway, to K-pop—there’s something for everyone.
