Best Music for Breaking Free of a Funk

2 years, 2 months ago

Hi all! I’m new here but I have to say I love the energy and enthusiasm everyone seems to have for embracing every second of life and making it meaningful. As someone who has suffered from clinical depression in the past, I really admire that.

I read an article on here that mentioned playing really loud impossible-not-to-move-to music to break out of fogginess, and was wondering if you kind folks could help me assemble a playlist or two. As someone who tends to be a fan of melancholy music, it struck me that perhaps my tunes were contributing to my mood. Time to mix it up a bit.
