There are days when all I want to do is lock myself in my room. Sometimes my anxiety is so high I don’t wanna leave my bed. When I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders, all I want to do is hide instead of facing the problem.

On days like this, I often turn to music. I go in my car, roll the windows down and blast my tunes. By the end of the drive, I always feel better.

Here are some of the songs I listen to when I need a mood boost.

1. “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac

This is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. Other than my love for Stevie Nicks, “Landslide” brings me so much joy and love. On my really bad days, Stevie’s lyrics remind me that no matter where I am in my journey, things will always get better.

“Well, I've been afraid of changin'/ 'Cause I've built my life around you/ But time makes you bolder/ Even children get older/ And I'm getting older too.”
