Enjoy these relaxing melodies taken straight from video games that I’ve played (or watched my sister play!)… I chose these games specifically for nostalgic reasons. It’s comforting to listen to the music which played for hours in the background of your childhood video game endeavors.
Many of these songs are extended between 15 and 30 minutes. Great as background music for bullet journaling & studying! There are no covers or remixes; only the pure, untainted sounds of sweet gaming memories.
Approaching my birthday, I’ve been pondering over how terribly self-conscious and skittish I was in grade school (and how I still am today). It primarily stems from social situations: worrying about how others perceived me, how I project myself and appear to the world… Although I’ve gained more confidence in myself, I still struggle with social anxiety. I’ve gotten better partly by using positive affirmations.
In counseling class last year, I learned how powerful and uplifting positive affirmations can be (Thank you, Mr. Goobs!) When you have low self-esteem, positive affirmations may feel silly to say out loud or even think of at first—but with time, they can help change the way you think about yourself for the better.
Positive affirmations realign and recenter the self when one gets especially lost in anxiety-induced, neurotic thoughts. It’s an effective practice of The Law of Attraction, which is the philosophy that both positive and negative thoughts affect the choices, experiences, and circumstances of your life.
Here are a few positive affirmations revolving around social anxiety. They’re grouped by different fears.
Started off Pisces season the right way, at the de Young Museum with my sisters and cousins!I was especially excited to see the exhibit Monet: The Late Years.Additionally, the museum was hosting another collection Gauguin: A Spiritual Journey.Here are some of my favorites, starting with Claude Monet’s poignant exhibit.
